Ultriva Survey Identified Supply Chain Pain Points


Cupertino, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/22/2014 -- Ultriva, Inc., provider of cloud-based supply chain execution software, announced the results of a recent customer survey on supply chain pain points. Ultriva specifically addresses the most common pain points as a solution. One pain point is manual Kanban. Manual Kanban system does not work because it is not scalable and cards are frequently lost. Ultriva’s eKanban technology turns a manual card system into a powerful closed-loop Kanban delivering supplier collaboration, visibility into real-time order flows, as well as shipment and receipt information. Ultriva maintains the visual nature of Kanban while guaranteeing no lost or duplicate cards.

Additionally, there is a lack of real-time visibility into the supply chain. Narayan Laksham, Ultriva’s founder and CEO explained, “The closest any manufacturer can get to the magic bullet is supply chain visibility. Supply chain visibility is needed to achieve manufacturers’ goal of saving money quickly and inexpensively. Ultriva’s approach to supply chain visibility is unique. All partners get access to data in real-time. Visibility to all orders allows suppliers to proactively respond to abnormal fluctuations in demand.”

Ultriva specializes in helping companies streamline supply chain to improve delivery. Ultriva was founded in 1999 to provide software solutions to companies that were struggling with demand volatility, unreliable suppliers, and forecast based planning systems. Since being founded they have deployed solutions in over 170 plants, in 20 countries and to over 8,000 suppliers. Customers have transacted over $2 billion and have saved over $500 million.
