With the go-live, FSI's customers now have real-time visibility to inventory and fulfillment requirements for their trade and point-of-sale programs.
With the need to help its expanding customer base drive cost out of their supply chain operations, FSI required a system capable of generating immediate process efficiencies and bottom-line savings. Supply Chain Advantage accomplishes this by integrating tightly with FSI's online order entry system, allowing customers to place orders remotely, monitor inventory status and achieve stronger overall management of their supply chains.
The system also empowers FSI with the visibility and functionality required to meet customer requests for just-in-time inventory management. FSI helps customers optimize the flow of inventory throughout the supply chain and keep costs low with visibility tools and reporting functionality, as well as warehouse practices such as crossdocking.
The solution was built based on an understanding of what's needed to achieve process efficiency in the warehouse, says Doug Peterson, vice president of operations, FSI. "The system's flexibility allows us to incorporate easily a wide range of customer requests -- a key requirement in our business."
