Purchasing teams handling inbound products and materials from suppliers often find themselves in a continuos loop of reactive, time-consuming and often manual tracking exercises when suppliers deliver late. Similarly, sales and customer service teams face the reality of handling dissatisfied customers when outbound orders, in turn, are delivered late to the final customer. Regardless if delay is in- or outbound, it is often a contributing factor in overall Supply Chain interruptions, increasing business risk, generating resource cost and increasing customer dissatisfaction.
Our Predictive Order Monitoring solution (or POM in short) uses AI models that can accurately predict which purchase or customer order will arrive late, this long before the order is dispatched. Through the Optilon Web Interface, team members can then view predictive statuses and taken proactive actions to course-correct delay.
