Cupertino, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/21/2014 -- Narayan Laksham, Founder and CEO of Ultriva, a leading supply chain execution software company, explained in the current company blog, “Recently, we announced that our Collaborative Lean Suite has achieved the ‘Built for NetSuite’ verification, just in time for SuiteWorld. This new SuiteApp, integrates using NetSuite’s SuiteCloud Computing Platform, and will provide NetSuite manufacturing customers with Electronic Kanban and lean manufacturing solutions.”
During the SuiteWorld conference, Ultriva’s sales team was able to engage with NetSuite’s manufacturing customers, which are small and medium businesses. One thing became evident; whether the company was enterprise-sized, or a small or medium manufacturing company, the problems are the same.
Laksham noted, “On the floor at SuiteWorld in San Jose, we heard from manufacturing companies on issues related to carrying excess inventory, part shortages, lack of control over production schedules and supplier performance. While the distribution companies complained about not able to carry the right mix of Finished Goods (FG) inventory, lack of supply chain visibility and excess inventory.”
