Quick foreign language translations, deeper keyword searches and real-time visibility are just some of the benefits of a new time-saving supply chain control tool.
Global supply chain program provider HighJump Software has released the new version of its WebWise system, with productivity enhancements that allow users to save more time on supply chain control.
The web reporting and configuration system provides real-time visibility into supply chain events, giving companies the ability to manage operations processes directly from a web browser, mobile phone or PDA.
Newly-added time-saving features include rapid foreign language update and translation services for the entire HighJump range of applications within minutes, as well as quick volume update functions that enable an end user to update thousands of locations, orders and other supply chain data immediately.
System search capabilities are also expanded, with searches easily locating nomenclature that has been modified for the user’s specific configuration.
The company’s vice president of marketing and strategy, Chad Collins said the system was making supply chain management more accessible and efficient for businesses with global product networks.
“Many of our customers spend hours each day using our HighJump WebWise tools to view and analyse their supply chain events.
“It is important that we deliver practical usability improvements to increase the productivity of these supply chain knowledge workers,” Mr Collins said.
The company, partnering with businesses such as Motorola, Intermec and Microsoft, provides an array of supply chain execution programs that help to streamline the flow of inventory and information throughout supply chains.
