Supplier Management Software
Avercast® Supplier Connection (ASC) is built entirely on a web-based .NET platform and integrates seamlessly with Avercast Business Forecasting (ABF) and Avercast Supply Planning (ASP). Once you have developed your forecast in ABF, and then formulated your supply plan in ASP, ASC summarizes your “projected orders” by vendor and prepares that information for dissemination over the web.
ASC utilizes roles and permissions that are designated by a system administrator. Each of your vendors receive a unique username and password that enables them to log onto a secure server over the internet and view a non-binding projected time-phased order schedule complete with items, quantities and dates.
Empowering your vendors to know what you plan on ordering from them, and when, typically improves their ability to reduce lead times and increase customer service levels. ASC can also serve as a tool for negotiation. Vendors are often willing to offer price breaks in exchange for projected order visibility.
