The tool integrates purchase-order, production and shipment data at overseas factories and warehouses, as well as international transportation data. It combines Yusen Logistics’ NEXT Visibility System and SATO’s Daisharin SaaS (Software as a Service) scan-and-pack system. Because the system is cloud-based, it allows for online access of overseas production, packaging and shipment status, eliminating the need for inquiries to the factory and carrier. The coordination between purchase-order and warehouse-management systems results in more efficient data management for the entire supply chain, the companies claimed. The service is also available for a monthly fee.
