Footwear Manufacturer Increases Fill Rates 10-15% with Supplier Collaboration

Challenge: A top-tier athletic footwear brand needed to gain quicker access to supplier information and share purchase order information with several hundred vendors and factories. The company was relying on manually intensive methods, with high error rates and long cycle times.

Solution: The footwear manufacturer implemented Amber Road's Global Sourcing solution in a cloud-based environment to execute purchase orders, collaboration, packing lists and invoices. Integration with a third-party logistics provider supplied shipping and logistics information to provide complete production reporting.

Results: The manufacturer has seen tremendous cost savings, efficiency improvements, and an increase in fill rates by 10%-15%. This collaborative approach also eliminates errors, greatly improving the consistency and accuracy of information shared by vendors and merchandisers. With improved shipment visibility, they have seen a strong reduction in airfreight costs. This footwear brand is also exploring the expansion of the solution for material management and quality testing.

As a leading provider of cloud-based global trade management (GTM) solutions, we automate import and export processes to enable goods to flow across international borders in the most efficient, compliant and profitable way.
