Turn your supply chain into a “glass pipeline”
With the proliferation of mobile devices and online social networks, customers get constant updates on who is offering their desired goods at the best price. So more organizations are differentiating themselves based on customer service and flexible delivery options. For example, customers can order online or by phone and choose to have the goods delivered or to pick them up from the store. In addition, if customers don’t find what they’re looking for on the shelf, they can use an in-store kiosk to place an order for pick up or delivery. To provide this great customer service, you need to be able to anticipate and react, which means you need real-time visibility of inventory and assets as they travel through your supply chain.
Real-time visibility provides the "glass pipeline" you need to better manage complex global supply chains.
RedPrairie’s web-based Visibility solution creates a “glass pipeline” that lets you see up and down your supply chain from the manufacturing floor to the store shelf. By integrating data from internal and external sources, it gives you an immediate view of what is happening and connects directly with execution systems to put you in control. With RedPrairie Visibility you can reduce safety stock, better utilize assets and provide better service to your customers — all of which translates to lower costs and higher revenues.

If RedPrairie Visibility is your eyes and ears, then these add-on execution systems become your arms and legs, helping you to optimize your supply chain:
Order Sourcing — an advanced inventory-sourcing tool that automatically determines the shipping warehouse for each order. You can make real-time decisions based on inventory availability; geography; product and facility characteristics; and customer delivery windows. Order Sourcing also automatically compares fulfillment options to provide the best combination of cost efficiency and customer service.
Available to Promise — a pre-allocation tool that that determines the current and future availability of merchandise at various fulfillment locations in your supply chain by looking at actual and forecasted orders and receipts. Knowing where and how much inventory will be available into the future enables you to offer multiple delivery options to customers.
Quality Assurance/Recall — a powerful network-wide solution, tightly integrated with logistics systems, which enables granular views of all inventories and allows real-time product holds and releases. With QA/Recall you can precisely identify locations and customers receiving suspect lots, saving time and cutting costs while protecting your brand.
Inbound Inventory Analysis — The IIA module allows you to divert incoming merchandise from suppliers to the right distribution center (DC), based on actual and forecasted orders to be fulfilled from that DC. This ensures the inbound flow of goods is orchestrated to match the end customer demand.
