Business Intelligence Software

Businesses create an awful lot of data. In the past, the figures resided in musty ledgers, now they’re digital and all suppliers across the country are easily integrated into one easy to use Web based system. Data is the window to a business success; the more data, the better the view. It’s not surprising that technology research finds that employing business intelligence software to gather and analyze data gives that edge to ensure success. A sign of the times, analytics management firm NPC, Inc. now through E-ZOrder.com offers solutions for small and mid-size operators and businesses nationally.

  Supply Chain Management  

   
 

Supply chain management (SCM) is the oversight of materials, information, and finances as they move in a process from supplier to manufacturer to wholesaler to retailer to consumer. Supply chain management involves coordinating and integrating these flows both within and among companies. It is said that the ultimate goal of any effective supply chain management system is to reduce inventory (with the assumption that products are available when needed). As a solution for successful supply chain management, sophisticated software systems with Web interfaces are competing with Web-based application service providers who promise to provide part or all of the SCM service for companies who rent their service.

Optimizing the Supply Chain and Procurement Process

As the 2009 economic situation challenges the food service industry restaurant chains and corporations continue to focus on ways to improve the bottom line, sourcing and procurement functions are being asked to examine ways to cut costs and control spending. Finance leaders recognize the need to enhance the speed and effectiveness of their procurement efforts to reduce operating expenses and negotiate more favorable prices from suppliers. Unfortunately, these functions still rely on manual, paper-based and often error-prone processes that hinder automation efforts. Manually handling and distributing RFQs, RFPs, technical drawings, contracts, receipts, emails, faxes and general correspondence wastes time, money and effort. The entire buying process is slowed, affecting direct materials (such as raw materials), indirect materials (such as office supplies), and the various services that a company needs to operate.

The resources and time required to manage all of the supporting material related to the procurement process is not trivial:

  • Clerical resources are necessary to handle the voluminous supporting documents.
  • Managing and maintaining records and audit trails is cumbersome when the procurement material is a combination of online and hardcopy paper documents.
  • A lost or misplaced document interferes with timely purchasing.
  • The inability to share purchasing information throughout the country from suppliers to stores effectively raises costs due to a lack of supplier consolidation.
  • Providing purchasing information to suppliers and to line-of-business managers within the organization is a time-consuming process.

Optimize Enterprise Performance with PCMS and OES Procurement and Spend Analytics
NPC’s Procurement & Spend Analytics, part of the procurement and logistics Applications, enable restaurant chains to optimize their supply side performance by integrating data from across the enterprise value chain and enabling executives, managers, and frontline employees to make more informed and actionable decisions. Organizations using this analytics tool benefit from increased visibility into the complete procure-to-pay process, including comprehensive spend and procurement analysis, supplier performance analysis, and supplier payables analysis. Insight into the factors that impact company performance enables organizations to significantly reduce costs, enhance profitability, increase customer satisfaction, reduce food costs and gain competitive advantage.

Enable Best Practice End-to-End Procure-to-Pay (P2P) Processes

NPC’s PCMS (Produce Cost Management System) for complete supply chain procurement integrated with NationalProduceConnections' OES system enables end-to-end process ownership from requisition to purchase order (PO) to payment. It is no secret that in most organizations, Purchasing and Accounts Payable (AP) often have different goals. Purchasing looks to maximize supplier relationships while AP seeks to expedite supplier payments. By capturing and managing all information online throughout the entire P2P process, and then optimizing the procurement and payment processes, PCMS helps ensure that prices are negotiated fully, PO's are generated accurately, and that invoices match the programs pricing and to allow payments to be remitted in a timely fashion.

Shared Services is an organizational best practice for procurement. Most national chains and regional companies have multiple purchasing departments resulting in disconnected processes and individuals all trying to accomplish the same function. Each organization executes transactions differently resulting in fragmented, inconsistent processes with no internal control over the information, presenting control and compliance issues.
