This way they can fully utilize the masses of information stored in EPRs and thus improve their competitiveness. By using LeanwareSCM services, you can simultaneously ensure that there are enough raw materials and products available, that work efforts are focused on the correct matters and that capital is not wasted on over stocking.

  • Calculation time of inventory value shortens by 10 to 30%
  • Reduction in workload for low-cost items by 30 to 70%

Discover the new functions and user interface features of LeanwareSCM.

Displays only the required information. Default roles ensure data security and eliminate information clutter. The role-based system determines access, editing, and viewing rights for each user.

This way, it can also be used on mobile devices. Sharing relevant information with others is smooth and effortless. The product does not require a separate installation on your computer, and you will always have the latest version at your disposal.

You can define the main settings and, for example, item controls with a dedicated wizard. This will simplify and guide the implementation process, informing you of what you need to do at each stage.

Extensive data is visualized in an easily understandable format, enabling good supply chain management.

All information and comments are recorded in the system, eliminating clumsy silent knowledge and effectively digitalizing operations. Paper notes are a thing of the past, making it easier to introduce new employees to their work assignments.

Reporting enables real-time monitoring, even when using a mobile device. The reports are clear, compact, and easy to read. They bring transparency all the way from supplier summaries to the customer, allowing you to easily monitor the whole supply chain. The reporting suite has been designed based on the needs of more than 500 users, so its visual dimension, user interface, and functions are well thought out.

You can break bigger entities down into easily controllable parts with their own goals, metrics, and control models. The considered points or items can be divided into their own groups. Instead of the whole inventory, you can easily view just one product group, for example.

The day-to-day operation of purchasing and supply chain management is full of reactive actions: putting out fires, placing orders, and seeing which tasks you are already running late on. These matters require your constant attention, which can sometimes lead to important things being left undone. The to-do list will tell you what to do and when it is most sensible to do it.

First, you will set targets for interconnected metrics, such as inventory value, workload, or availability. After this, you can calculate which controls will help you reach your goals. This way, you can achieve great results. See our customer references for more information

Improve profits and cut costs

SCM is a unique solution for supply chain management, monitoring, transparency as well as reporting and analyzing. The product dynamically calculates control values while taking into account changes in consumption or predictions, creates clear processes and modes of operation for purchasing, supplier cooperation and stock management as well as product policy.

The organization must optimize the supply chain and increase stock circulation. This way it can be ensured that the right stock is in the right place at the right time, everywhere in the world. At the same time over stocking and running out of stock can be prevented. This improves cashflow and decreases costs.

Purchasing can be made simpler, stock smaller and availability better, but most of all, work can be made easier and motivation and customer satisfaction can be improved.
