10 Crucial SCM Software Types

Business leaders should keep up with the trend of SCM applications that could be their ally in outperforming the competitors and being the needed boost leading to improving operational performance. We have prepared a list of the top examples to make choosing optimal tools for your company easier. Let's explore the systems for supply management chains available in the market.

Processing the orders
The speed of processing the new orders directly influences the satisfaction of your customers and, thus, the revenue. That's why it is vital to make this business area exceptionally efficient.

An effective SCM solution should have the following features:

· Tracking the shipped orders

· Processing of the order accomplishment

· Automated billing

· Generation of invoices

· Paperless PO

When you automate the aforementioned supply chain components, human errors get minimized. Moreover, your organization gains additional space for growth due to the released creativity of your employees since they don't have to do repetitive paperwork and administrative tasks and can get involved in value-generating tasks instead.
Usually, the SCM software is a solution based in the cloud, automating time tracking activities, staff scheduling, communication efforts etc. Utilizing such software, you could prevent the issues related to the payroll, raise employee satisfaction and reduce the amount of scheduling-related conflicts.

Typically, a platform for scheduling will have the following components:

· System of instant messaging

· Recommendations for the optimal schedule

· Feature of managing the shift swap, availability, holiday and leave

· Online creation and Management of a schedule

· Timesheets to register the automatic clock-in and -out
Inventory Management
If your supply chain company requires warehouse space optimization, inventory management software is the right solution to cope with this task. Moreover, it could help you in forecasting customer demand so you can avert being under and out-stocked, and you can also streamline the planning of production.

Since warehouse management tools are outfitted with artificial intelligence technologies, logistics activities are eased as never before. For example, the AI would bundle specific product shipments by the marker of same-day shipment so the products could be retrieved easier.
Truck Dispatching
Getting yourself a trucking dispatch software, you simplify the tasks of:

· Scheduling

· Track routing since it gets automated

· Monitoring the state of delivery transport

This way, you significantly simplify the work of your supply chain enterprise. Trucking dispatch software is the right choice if you want to get rid of empty miles once and for good, if the communication with stakeholders is highly time-consuming, or if you experience difficulties routing the shipping.
Shipment Monitoring
A successful supply chain company typically has a daily high volume of shipments delivered to clients worldwide. The logistics of order delivery can be affected by problems of various kinds, which end up generating delays and discontent among consumers. So, implementing an app for delivery monitoring is a viable solution.

It is an application that can also be integrated into management platforms. With it, carriers, managers and customers stay in communication; while the order status is reported and updated in real time.

Cross-referenced and real-time information makes it possible to track your shipment at every step of the delivery process with ongoing GPS location tracking and anticipate unforeseen events, thereby reducing anxieties about delays and accessing agile solutions to problems that arise. This way, you can fully control the company's operations and make the entire distribution network visible at hand.

Suppose the features mentioned above are not enough for your enterprise, and you want to facilitate the tracking capabilities to the next level. In that case, you can embrace the IoT technology enhancing your truck's cargo with intelligent sensors that would provide timely updates on the conditions in which your products are transported. This would allow you to ensure the clients that the items would arrive in proper condition whenever you carry the delivery out, no matter how long they had to travel to reach their final recipient.
Demand Forecasting
Solutions for forecasting demand could be a separate tool integrated with SCM software or a part of a supply chain management system. The main aim of such apps is to be able to forecast future demand to manage the inventory better, plan the distribution of labor resources etc.

The solutions currently available on the market involve the machine learning mechanism. Thus, their predictions are based on more than just historical data, which might need to be updated in such a fast-paced market, but on the most recent information about the market. ML-powered tools promptly process a large amount of data, making these forecasts accurate overall.
Business Intelligence
One more type of SCM software essential for successfully handling business processes is that it can provide comprehensive and up-to-the-minute business intelligence. A business that seeks expansion, growth, improvement and, of course, more significant profits would need proper and detailed data analytics.

For this reason, enterprises often involve data analysis tools in their business. They help them with overall performance assessment, analysis of sales and marketing campaign success rate, and identification of causes of errors or delivery delays.
Customer and Supplier Management
The main goal of supply chain companies is to satisfy customers' needs through the suppliers. Typically the tools that can facilitate this connection are CRM platforms that can gather all the customer and supplier-related information in one place.

Using CRM arms you with information on all clients and partners interaction, so you can keep track of all the communication processes in one place and also analyze how the chosen group of customers affects your company's business. You can maximize your organizational performance by being informed about all the client-related ongoing processes.
Client Support
Customers expect to contact the delivery company anytime if they have issues or questions about their delivery. Thus, it would help if you allowed your customers to contact a representative operator through your website's customer support chat function.

Besides the essential functions, some other enterprises enhance customer support with artificial intelligence, which can generate an automated transcription of phone calls and provide real-time analytics and prompts for your contact center. This way, you can rest assured that all the customer issues have been resolved promptly without damaging the percentage of customer satisfaction.
Tools that facilitate collaboration make it easier for a supply chain business to flourish. Ultimately, the multiple stakeholders you have across the whole value chain should be able to interact.

Such software would allow you to facilitate communication to discuss specific tasks, possible problem zones, shipment issues, and potential contracts relying on the chat function and project management solutions enclosed as a function.
Benefits of supply chain management software
Better visibility
A vital element of effective supply chain management software is complete visibility, allowing you to track the product from the manufacturer to delivery to its final destination.

Since logistics processes are enhanced with cutting-edge technologies like cloud-based systems of communication, sensors, Artificial intelligence, Machine learning, and advanced tracking software to follow each stage of the logistics process, we could provide all the stakeholders with end-to-end visibility, streamline the processes, automate the maintenance and improve efficiency across all segments and operations.

These tech opportunities arm you with a centralized view of inventory, the supply chain activity, and all the processes and systems involved in all the logistics operations. In times of disruption, all parties must stay informed and up to date.
Enhanced efficiency and customer satisfaction
Inefficient supply chains have a tremendous unnecessary cost to organizations. By finding and eliminating bottlenecks that are the reason for delays in your processes, you could increase the speed of order delivery. Moreover, SCM software integration boosts productivity in daily tasks since their automation and decreases time-to-market.

Good logistics management will impact the quality of service and end customers' experience. If done efficiently, it will prevent errors that negatively affect customer satisfaction and make products and services more attractive. This step will be essential to customer loyalty since speed and delivery facilities are vital factors.
Integrated supply chain analytics is a powerful strategy to keep your enterprise running at peak efficiency and reduce downtime to a minimum.

Each process in the supply chain generates a massive amount of data valuable to the business if it functions correctly.

Applying analytics to the supply chain helps organizations to have better tools to make wise, informed, fast and efficient data-driven decisions. All the information, like the optimal supplier for raw materials in terms of cost, sales figures and delivery timeframes, would be thoroughly analyzed. This way, you could improve each stage of the supply chain operation and delight your customers with the best experience in the market.

Use operational and IoT data, from the manufacturing floor to the back office, to plan all the business processes, proactively manage assets, and increase efficiency.
By digitizing your supply chain, you reduce precious time on unnecessary paperwork.

Thanks to the digitalization of your organization, you collect information more efficiently so decision-makers can use the information more quickly. With digitization, managers can drill down and get a complete picture of specific suppliers, countries and product lines while quickly gathering information to put together the complete and accurate puzzle of their supply chain. Digitalization ensures that all the orders are managed effectively, and the number of delays is significantly reduced. Also, trends can be more easily observed to assess short- and long-term performance.
Lowering costs
Decreasing the operational costs would have a beneficial impact on the business's net income and overall success.

Effective supply chain management software detects costly processes that do not add value to the final product. This allows a company to minimize or eliminate these processes, reducing operating costs.

Moreover, being in control of payments would ensure timely money transfers to suppliers, which would allow you to avoid the fees for late-payments and may even let you earn a payment discount for paying early.
Greater agility
One of the advantages of a digital platform is the speed at which anything can happen. Actions are taken, reports are generated, and analysis is completed in moments rather than days or weeks. Thus, managers can address quality and compliance issues almost before they arise, saving time and money.

Complete visibility of your supply chain improves the flexibility of your digital chain, optimizes performance and increases the resilience of your entire operation. This way, you can promptly react to the disruptions, such as issues with the supplier or changes in the demands of clients, so you can keep the customer satisfaction rate high and generate even more profit.
Increased compliance
Multiple supply chain processes have to follow strict compliance guidelines. For example, the raw materials should comply with specific standards, and you should remember the sustainability standards. If you get the supplements overseas, all international shipments should have the documents to pass customs. SCM software increases transparency so you can build process compliance measures, decreasing the possibility of human errors.

Since the software would double-check that all the regulations are met, it is possible to achieve the mitigation of non-compliance risk and be fined for it. This way, you could rest assured that no damage would ever happen to your brand's reputation.
Mitigate risk
Several economic, political, technological and environmental factors could put the continuity of your supply chain at risk. Timely identification of these risks is possible through thorough monitoring, allowing you to detect potential threats before they arise. This would give you an advantage in time to downplay the disruption, always having a plan since you would be aware of the potential issues.
