Know Exactly What to Purchase, Never be Caught Short
Manage material or service requirements without carrying too much stock or paying expedite fees.
Without integrating your material and service requirements to your planning solution, you are likely spending too much time running out to the shop just eyeballing your stock levels or chasing paperwork on late receipts. With purchasing, it is all about maximizing your buying power, carrying just the right amount of stock, and staying ahead of potential late deliveries.
How can you know exactly what to buy when you need to buy it?
If you don’t know what to buy and when you need to buy it, you may be hedging your bets, tying up too much cash in stock, or missing the delivery date of a critical order. If you are responsible for purchasing material or services for a contract, make-to-order shop, knowing exactly what you need to buy and when you need to buy it is critical. If you don’t have complete visibility to current stock levels, material requirements for a rush job, or past due receipts, you are running blind and may be over-spending on rush orders or expedites.
