Supply Chain Management
Today’s global supply chains are increasingly complex, making a data-driven approach to supply chain management a must. Data-driven SCM provides visibility from end to end for monitoring the flow of information, services and goods from procurement through to delivery.

Supply Chain Management
Data isn’t the only driver of effective supply chain management; other factors such as excellent vendor and supplier relationships, effective cost control, securing the right logistics partners and adopting innovative supply chain technologies can have a big impact too. Supply chain optimisation isn’t a simple undertaking, but effective SCM offers numerous benefits that improve the bottom line.
Below are the key areas to consider when looking at how to improve your supply chain management when it comes to systems.
Whilst this is a very broad reaching subject, there are some key areas to consider that will have a very impactful and positive effect when it comes to systems, visibility and the distribution processes. Most software can be treated as a modular approach allowing you to make manageable and meaningful steps towards the end efficiency goal. Some of these areas are listed below.
It is important to know why goods are coming into the business, whether it be for stock or for a specific customer or manufacturing job. Our Pre-Allocations solution allows businesses to have full and manageable visibility across the business of what incoming stock is for. This then allows the goods in process to direct goods correctly saving both time, space and cost.
- Container Management
A large proportion of goods coming into the UK are imports from abroad. Many of these imports utilise containers. Management of these containers can be a very manual and time consuming process. Our container solutions will allow you to effectivly create, track, manage and receive all of your incoming containers within one system.
If you have a supply chain process and deal with stock then it could be a solution that is worth considering. By analysing demand (Sales Orders, Sales Forecasts, Free Stock and Stock Replenishment Rules) MRP will make recommendations for purchasing. This allows many aspects of the business to be more self sufficient, less reliant on human knowledge and more cost efficient with regard to cash flow and stock retention.
- Warehouse Replenishment
If you have multiple remote warehouses such as engineer vans, consignment warehouses and production plants, and require a management tool to accurately maintain stock levels then this solution can be a huge time saver, especially when used in conjunction with an MRP system.
- Reserves & Call Offs
If you hold stock for customers and release via a Sales Order or directly from the reservation, these solutions will be of huge help to the management of this process. Gone will be the days of stock being ‘fought’ over by whoever shouts the loudest.
With a supply chain solution from EBS you are able to save time, money and sanity by automating and streamlining processes which are core to your business. With this in place your organisation can focus on the future and worry less about the day to day.
