- Supply Chain Messaging & Integration – A fully-managed service, it includes any-to-any message and network protocol translation for all trading partners.
- Supply Chain Presentation Layer – For SCM applications that reside outside of core computer systems, SCIaaS includes a highly configurable, browser based presentation layer.
- Supply Chain Community Management – Complimentary services to recruit, train and maintain trading partners.
New initiatives demand a new approach
Supply chain pioneers have in the past invested heavily in multiple EDI or messaging translators, bespoke custom development and large amounts of consulting to implement even the most basic of functionality.
As a result, trading partners were slow to react, benefits rarely outweighed the costs, many projects weren’t integrated in to core computer systems and few if any implementations operated in real-time.
The above issues and hurdles represent the core elements that we choose to overcome when developing Supply Chain Management as a Service (SCMaaS).
SCMaaS in detail
SCMaaS is an on-demand, hosted and fully-managed platform and suite of complimentary services that from its very inception over eight years ago was designed to virtualise a complete end to end supply chain.
SCMaaS consists of:
Supply Chain Platform - At the core of the solution is a fully-managed platform that’s exclusively made visible to all or selective participants in a specific supply chain. The platform is delivered via SaaS so the entire supply chain can simply plug in to their SCMaaS cloud without the need to purchase any additional hardware or software.
Supply Chain Business Objects - SCMaaS comes with a library of supply chain business objects that can be implemented to provide immediate rules, logic and functionality. Current objects include for example - freight mode and carrier selection, dynamic supplier selection, vendor managed inventory, inventory collaboration, forecast collaboration, trade promotion management and unique business processes for selective product categories, customers or channels
Supply Chain Object Development Environment - We realise however that no two supply chains are the same and regulatory and competitive advantages have very different effects across retailers, financial services and chemicals and pharmaceuticals for example. Therefore we’ve developed a rapid “supply chain object” development environment that allows us to deploy, customise and if needs be invent new workflow, business logic and functionality for individual customers.
Supply Chain Messaging & Integration - The SCMaaS cloud also contains sophisticated any-to-any message and network transport protocol translation capabilities. For a fixed fee and timescale, Perceptant will map all messages across the entire trading community, immaterial of complexity and format. This service removes one of the major stumbling blocks faced by supply-chain initiatives and facilitates the rapid exchange of data between trading partners and their computer systems, without the need for any additional software or hardware.
Supply Chain Presentation Layer - For SCM applications that reside outside of core computer systems, SCIaaS includes a highly configurable, browser based presentation layer.
Supply Chain Community Management - The true measurement of success for any supply chain solution is the percentage uptake and strength of business benefit felt by its trading partners. Perceptant therefore includes as part of SCMaaS (at no cost) complimentary services to recruit, train and maintain trading partners.
