Considerations for Cloud-Based Supply Chain Software

Most MRP software and DRP systems are installed on your server making it difficult to share this information across different locations or with external users such as customers and vendors. In today’s day and age it is becoming increasingly important for this information to be available to external users. A Cloud-Based Supply Chain Software system can help you quickly and easily share important information with customers, suppliers,  and vendors.

Anytime Supply Chain is a 100% Cloud-Based Supply Chain Software system for forecasting and supply chain management with all of the security provided through the underlying Microsoft SQL Azure database hosted, backed-up, and secured by Microsoft.

Hosting this information allows planners across facilities to collaborate on their plans. An employee at one location may manage demand forecasts while buyers in other locations manage their respective purchase orders and production managers review planned work orders for their manufacturing facilities.

Product development plans for Anytime Supply Chain software include extensions of the system for vendors or suppliers to review stocking levels for the parts they supply and to download or view forecasts for these items based on your internal MRP/DRP plans. The system can easily be extended to support vendor managed inventories (VMI) and other vendor-facing supply chain strategies.

Other considerations include extensions for customer log-ins so customers can view order information and where customers could potentially upload or maintain forecasted demand to improve the supply chain planning process.

Anytime Supply Chain Cloud-Based Supply Chain software is one of the first cloud demand planning software applications. Used either for cloud DRP or cloud MRP, Anytime Supply Chain is cloud-based supply chain management software designed for the small company using QuickBooks on up to larger, geographically dispersed enterprises running a host of different ERP business systems with more advanced supply chain requirements.
