Understanding the complex needs of the FMCG sector

It’s integral for FMCG supply chains to run smoothly, ensuring a fast and efficient flow of products from manufacturing to distribution centres, finally reaching the end customer. To optimise an organisation’s supply chain the physical product, information, and financial flows must fully synchronise.

  • Physical flows: the passing of goods from distribution centres to retailers
  • Information flows: ability to access retailer and business information, i.e. purchase orders
  • Financial flows: the exchange of money with various trading partners across your supply chain

Succeeding in a
fast-paced industry

Implementing an integrated EDI solution can help FMCG businesses to streamline supply chain communications and collate information onto a centralised point.

We believe there are three significant factors an automated and integrated solution can help FMCG based businesses:

  • Improve data visibility: more businesses are adopting additional software solutions such as Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) in addition to their ERPs, meaning there is greater need for an integrated solution to incorporate additional data flows
  • Optimise deliveries: businesses can provide further visibility of deliveries by using Advanced Shipping Notices (ASNs) detailing products, times, and locations to receiving distribution centres
  • Customer satisfaction: a solution utilising API connectors empowers businesses with real-time data, reducing the risk of stock shortages that can potentially harm customer satisfaction and retention
