Ultriva Cloud-Based Collaborative Supply Chain Includes Collaborative Planning Module
Cupertino, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/07/2014 -- Ultriva, the leader in collaborative supply chain solutions, is quickly becoming the enterprise-wide solution for many multi-national corporations. The Ultriva cloud-based software further accelerates productivity and performance for global manufacturing firms. The unique value proposition of Ultriva includes an Inventory Optimization Tool to improve operational and financial performance of supply chains and a Collaborative Planning module that combines historical consumption and replenishment data with forward-looking demand data to calculate future inventory positions.
Ultriva’s mission of empowering global manufacturers to achieve maximum inventory velocity through demand-responsive supply chains, confronts the reality that current supply chain management systems are good at planning, but lack the tools necessary to quickly and cost effectively react to the constant stream of changes in customer demand, supply and pricing common in today’s global markets. Ultriva addresses the inability of these systems to support true collaboration and execution between manufacturers and their supply chain partners.
Ultriva’s unique closed-loop event-driven architecture enables manufacturers to deploy the technology to the most constrained loop in an enterprise value chain and then work up or down the chain to achieve optimal performance.
Narayan Laksham, Ultriva founder and CEO commented, “We believe in providing greater transparency and collaboration between manufacturers and their supply chain partners. Our customers have experienced an average 35% increase in inventory velocity along with across-the-board improvements in employee productivity and supply chain decision making. We work closely with our customers to deliver even greater value through ultra-responsive, demand-driven supply chains.”
Ultriva’s (http://www.ultriva.com) cloud-based platform leverages and seamlessly integrates with leading ERP and MRP systems, to deliver an end to end pull based replenishment model. Ultriva, based in Cupertino, CA, implemented a global demand driven manufacturing model by providing full visibility, scheduling, and sequencing of production of customer orders. The need for a collaborative transactional portal is essential and E2E (End to End) Pull allows large multi-national manufacturers to actively collaborate with customers for actual demand and synchronize with suppliers for replenishment. E2E Pull offers a better solution to balancing supply with customer demand through procurement strategies, materials and inventory policies tied to actual demand signals. Many suppliers want to provide sufficient service levels to customers and turn supply replenishment and synchronization into a competitive advantage. The company’s global footprint is increasing rapidly with implementations in wide variety of industry sectors and enterprises such as ATK, CareFusion, Emerson, Ingersoll Rand, McKesson, Magellan, Regal Beloit, Thermo Fisher and more.
