Businesses are in a constant war with costs. And increasingly, the battles are being fought at the frontline of the supply chain. Cutting supply chain costs in a post-pandemic, work-from-home world is not easy, especially when much of the transactional work is now done by huge sophisticated software systems from the likes of SAP and others.
The growing need has been to offer modern, mobile-ready applications that address important supply chain functions such as work order management, stock summaries and physical inventory more flexibly. The new Pillir Asset Management Suite is designed to help enterprise-scale customers manage their supply chain needs in more efficient ways.
Enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems are typically implemented as large-scale inflexible systems. Many times on a fire and forget basis. Pillir spokesperson explains the problem: “Large enterprises often design their business processes to complement existing ERP platforms, but over the years these become ridden with long term technical debt and complications.”
Now, new software technologies are allowing for more flexible approaches such as expanded device compatibility for deployment onto mobile and ruggedised platforms. The new systems provide geolocation, zero connectivity batch synchronisation , biometric security, and comprehensive barcode scanning across QR, UPC, EAN and other standards.
The result are systems that can cope with fast and flexible deliverable needs, which means greatly improved productivity efficiency and more user-friendly operation. By adopting a low-code model, there is also less need for experienced and skilled programmers to implement, maintain and update these supply chain process systems.
As the world moves into a new era of supply chain stress, caused by volatile global events and steep economic pressures, the winners and losers will be defined by how fast they can move, and how efficiently they can stay up to date with best of breed supply chain processes. Those who prepare properly now, will reap significant benefits later.
Pillir’s mission is to help organisations develop mission critical applications 20 times faster, and leverage the power of SAP’s digital core from any device, with or without connectivity. This gives enterprise customers the power to innovate their supply chain systems quickly and easily, with little-to-no programming, whenever and however they find a need.
