Managing Supply Chain Equipment with Kontrol
Collaboration is the key to success in managing supply-chain equipment, especially when multiple business partners are spread across dispersed locations; even internationally. Problems that can arise if the equipment is not managed effectively are:
- Retrieval for inspection and repair
- Stock piling
- Stock shortage
Using the equipment efficiently and managing it effectively reduces the investment requirement and the operating costs resulting from:
- Surplus stocks
- Replacing losses
- Repairing damage
- Relocating misplaced items
- Poor maintenance
Well-managed equipment delivers a significantly better life-time return on investment and reduces the carbon footprint.
Kontrol is a web-based system, designed by logistics specialists, for managing supply-chain equipment. It is easy to deploy, requiring no special hardware of software. Its intuitive and easy-to-use screens enable all business partners to use a common platform to provide visibility and control for managed equipment across all locations in the supply-chain.
Kontrol handles unlimited equipment types and locations. It offers functionality for Locations to re-order equipment supplies, either manually or by auto-replenishment. If there are charges relating to equipment use and loss, Kontrol can process these. It provides charged locations with a daily analysis of incurred charges in local currency, with invoice summaries for upload into financial systems.
Kontrol can interface with ERP/WMS systems. Using serial-number tracking and traceability, it can manage specific items by unique identification (bar-code or RFID).
Kontrolis a “SaaS” application, provided on a pay-by-use basis related directly to the key drivers of your supply-chain. This enables you to easily identify the cost-saving benefits of using the system.
