Challenge: This top-tier athletic footwear manufacturer relied on manually-intensive methods for managing purchase orders and found it difficult to track inbound shipments for complete end-to-end visibility. The company needed quicker access to supplier information and purchase order information with several hundred vendors and factories more efficiently.
Solution: This footwear manufacturer implemented Amber Road's Supplier Collaboration solutions to execute purchase orders, packing lists, and invoices.
Results: With improved purchase order and supplier collaboration, the manufacturer has increased fill rates by 10% - 15%. A centralized platform allows users to access appropriate information based on security rights and role settings. By improving their 3-way match processing, the company has achieved annual savings in the mid six figures and has greatly improved the consistency and accuracy of information shared by vendors and merchandisers. Improved shipment visibility has reduced airfreight costs. This footwear brand is also exploring the expansion of various modules for material management and quality testing.
