Provides suppliers all the access, communication and supply chain execution tools needed to successfully service your enterprise
Supplier Enablement is an online portal between you and your suppliers, so you can communicate in real time and synchronize your business processes. With Supplier Enablement, your business will speed time to market, reduce errors, increase inventory turns and lower costs.
Supplier Enablement gives you the tools to overcome barriers that might otherwise prevent easy collaboration, such as differing languages, currencies, time zones, technology platforms and tiers of manufacturing. By automating collaboration on a unified web-based platform, any supplier with a web browser can become a part of your automated supply chain.
Supplier Enablement includes these feature focus areas:
Supplier Enablement is particularly powerful when combined with Hub Enablement. Together, these modules enable global visibility: shipping from anywhere to anywhere with traceability and accountability at all times. With the full benefit of collaboration with suppliers and hubs, you can maximise cross-dock and flow-through for direct-to-store delivery, thus reducing inventory, speeding orders to market and dramatically cutting transportation, storage and labour costs.
Allows for physical execution of shipping and receiving at hubs, pool points, transload facilities or other LSPs.
Our Hub Management software provides web-based technology that easily and inexpensively enables warehouse-like execution in all arms of your supply chain, no matter how small the facility. Hubs can even consolidate shipments directly to stores and end customers, bypassing warehouses altogether.
Whether the facility is a distribution hub, cross dock, pool point, transload facility or consolidation/de-consolidation point, Hub Enablement provides core supply chain execution and visibility across the supply chain.
Hub enablement allows you to achieve the following:
Offers granular visibility and task-based control of yard operations to maximize the flow of all inbound and outbound tasks.
With the rapid response required in today’s supply chains, operational efficiency is more essential than ever. Our Yard Management capabilities help ensure that efficiency by providing detailed visibility and task-based control of yard operations. And by maximizing the flow of all inbound and outbound goods, your team can reduce costs while meeting customer demands.
Yard Management maximizes yard and warehouse efficiency by managing the flow of all inbound and outbound goods. Our proven yard management solution enables you to plan, execute, track, and audit loads based on critical characteristics like shipment type, load configuration, labor requirements, and dock and warehouse capacity.
Allows transporters and suppliers can self-schedule warehouse delivery and pickups.
Poor carrier appointment scheduling can create inadequate labor allocation, inefficient loading/unloading, and unnecessary dwell times. Our appointment scheduling software is a proven tool that allows carriers and suppliers to easily “self-schedule” their warehouse delivery and labour needs. This helps increase productivity and levels workload, stay on schedule, and keep in compliance with U.S. Hours of Service and other government regulations.
Proactive monitoring of supply chain events with real-time notifications when disruptions occur that can allow you to harness the right supply chain data to make better decisions.
Enterprises are constantly being challenged to adapt to market and demand changes, and to iterate and innovate at lightning speed. However, this agility is practically impossible without proactive monitoring of supply chain operations, both within your four walls and across your extended enterprise. It’s fundamentally important to help team members from the warehouse, transportation, stores, and procurement, as well as suppliers and carriers, stay abreast of supply chain performance in real time.
With Event Management, your team can monitor millions of supply chain events as they occur, on a day-to-day basis. From buyers to warehouse supervisors to traffic managers to store associates, all parties can receive real-time notifications that enable proactive, corrective actions to improve inventory control and turns, cycle time variability, and warehouse productivity.
Get a single view of your global supply chain network for you, your trading partners and customers for real-time order, inventory and shipment information which provides role-based access to current information regarding your inventory, orders and shipments across the globe.
Our extended enterprise management system can create an online portal between you and your suppliers for effortless collaboration to manage requisitions and purchase orders, facilitate easier order fulfilment and shipping, automate claims for chargebacks and ensure increased quality assurance.
Constantly expanding fulfillment methods and selling channels mean that enterprises are more dependent than ever on their global trading partners to support the scale of operations needed to compete. Manhattan Extended Enterprise enables closer collaboration with trading partners to ensure an adaptive, agile supply chain.
