In this series, Ferret.com.au looks at products designed to assist manufacturers and distributors to enhance productivity and optimise management of the supply chain. Part two, which discusses barcodes and data capture, can be found by clicking here.

As previously mentioned, ERP solutions provider ComActivity specialises in providing analysis and software solutions geared at optimising industrial supply chains at each step of the life cycle of the products of a business.

ComActivity's optimisation services focus on three key areas:
  • process improvement
  • software configuration; and
  • optimisation solutions.
The software used in an industrial environment, then, can play a big role in improving productivity and the management of multiple flows of goods and information.

To this end, productivity specialist RedPrairie supplies comprehensive, fully integrated supply chain management software solutions geared at optimising every node in these extended networks, and synchronising the flow of products and information all the way to the retail shelf.

The company states that its supply chain management solutions are able to:
  • reduce inventory levels at each stage
  • improve on shelf and Just In Time performance; and
  • improve top line growth and profitability.
For managing transport and freight activities, logistics software provider Translogix Software has developed Sapphire transport management software, which the company states recently helped a client to achieve 40% administration time savings and improved customer responsiveness.

In addition to supplying automation and order picking machinery, Cornerstone Automation Systems also distributes a range of supply chain management software, including SolidPack shipping software. This software package is designed to guarantee 100% accuracy, ensuring no incorrect items are shipped, which can be a potentially costly and time consuming mistake to make.
