DiMetrics - Supply Chain Management Solution
EDI Metrics Solution: Prevent costly occurrences before they occur
In order to maintain or improve customer service you need to respond quickly to consumer demand. DiMetrics is a hosted transaction visibility solution, helping you manage critical exceptions and share information more effectively by monitoring retail business-to-business transactions. Are goods being shipped on time and complete? Are invoices being billed correctly? Do your customers alert you of poor supply chain performance or do you alert yourself? How many exceptions do you have with one carrier versus another? Which factories continually struggle with capacity or miss shipping windows? Can this information be captured, measured, and used to collaborate with all parties in your extended supply chain? It is critical to be able to pinpoint where your goods are located, have concrete knowledge on the shipment's location, and anticipate what items will be delivered to that location, and when it will arrive-DiMetrics delivers this and more.
What DiMetrics Does:
- Event Management: Provides definition and order to the significant occurrences within your global supply chain.
- Exception Management: Provides conditional alerts on customer defined metrics such as ship dates, vessels, etc. Delivery available via static web, email and mobile platforms (i.e. text message).
- Supplier & Carrier Metrics: Measures trading partner fill rates, and performance based on your KPI's KPIs (Key Performance Indicator)-track metrics based on events throughout your supply chain (i.e. late shipments, short-ship, late arrivals, etc.).
