TAKE Solutions Releases Latest Version of OneSCM Extended Supply Chain Collaboration Suite
New version includes enhanced B2B integration and functionality for customers running Oracle, SAP, and other ERP platforms; extended efficiencies in the procure-to-pay cycle and expanded integration of TAKE’s proprietary ControlPoint Tracking technology.
November 14, 2012, Austin, TX: TAKE Solutions, a leader in the Supply Chain Management (SCM) and Life Sciences (LS) domains, today announced its next release of OneSCM, a multi-enterprise collaboration suite for managing extended supply chain operations. The latest version introduces enriched functionality for all ERP back end systems, including customers running Oracle or SAP. This release also features daily time and cost saving enhancements within the procure-to-pay cycle as well as the expansion of OneSCM’s ControlPoint TrackingTM technology to web-based access. OneSCM offers flexible deployment and integration options to support cloud and on-premise, java, and .NET architectures.
One of the most notable new features is the expansion of OneSCM’s ControlPoint Tracking technology, which embeds digital tracking into the item label prior to shipment, to web-based access. Unlike other solutions, which are feature-limited and primarily available only via EDI integration, or simple over-the-web-package-label printing options, OneSCM’s now delivers expanded insight and control over inbound shipments that map to a customer’s specific business processes and requirements. For example, the module can require a specific supplier or group of suppliers to electronically pre-verify a shipment against the PO for price, quantity and shipping window, and only release the label and Parcel Tracking Number (PTN) upon validation. Different processes and validations can be implemented for other suppliers and supplier groups based on business requirements.
Among the enhancements included in the procure-to-pay module is expanded demand collaboration functionality, which allows planners and buyers to move from spreadsheet/email-based forecasting to integrated supplier collaboration of lead times, quantity commitments, and pricing. In addition, invoice reconciliation can now be expedited further with attachments of supporting documentation.
“True business intelligence comes from integration at the detailed level of operations that OneSCM delivers. This accelerated flow of reliable information helps to increase decision-making speed and accuracy across the entire supply chain, which translates into daily productivity and cost-savings for our customers,” said Young Kim, director of product management, TAKE Solutions. “This latest release puts more information and control in the hands of daily decision-makers in vital areas such as planning and inventory traceability, regardless of their technology platform or their business communications integration method.”
