Within the Jeeves Supply Chain Management application area, you can control processes and decisions that will maximize the profitability of your operations, reduce labor and carrying costs, and improve inventory accuracy. With Jeeves ERP, you can easily build and use the ERP system your competition doesn’t have, one adaptation at a time:
- Create workflows that will preserve the uniqueness of your distribution cycle, from purchasing and stocking to merchandise returns.
- Easily integrate the application area with your equipment and other supply chain critical systems, such as label printers, scanners, handhelds, EDI, external WMS systems, automated storage and retrieval systems, as well as any other application that fuels your supply chain.
- Search on any field, or any data point to answer questions and resolve problems with your suppliers and partners.
- Move, add or remove fields, as well as create your own tabs, buttons and reports.
The Jeeves Inventory Management feature set helps you manage inventory processes, from costing and control to counting and planning. The system’s capabilities are made possible by a robust, flexible product data structure that allows you to classify, track and monitor your products and items, such as variants, seasonality, and costing, at a detailed level. With inventory management, you can perform physical inventory counts and set up inventory controls that generate inventory transactions against the rules you define, such as available balances, booked balances, lead times, minimum/maximum balances for stocked items, or lead times for non-stocked items. Jeeves Inventory Management helps you minimize inventory carrying costs with tools that allow you to perform ABC-analysis to calculate safety stock, as well as analyze your inventory turnover rate. The warehouse-centric design of the feature lets you track costs and sales histories across a global configuration of warehouses, locations and bins. Inventory also can be tracked by serial number, lot or batch for complete traceability. Valuations can be made based on a number of different methods, such as FIFO, average price, or standard price from preliminary calculations. Advanced Inventory Management features also work in support of, or as a substitute for, your forecasting and planning needs. Proven statistical formulas can help you manage plans for slow-moving or seasonal products, or alert you when forecasts are deviating from demand.
The Jeeves inventory replenishment feature delivers powerful forecasts that help you predict what customers will buy, as well as automated procurement that produces system-generated purchase orders and transfer orders.
The Jeeves Purchasing feature set helps you manage the entire procurement process—from requirement calculations and requisitions to matching deliveries with supplier invoices and producing supplier statistics and evaluations. Jeeves Purchasing is designed to help you manage all types of suppliers, including domestic and international, as well as any number of supplier-specific rules, such as suppliers with another payee, currency and language requirements, or acquisition methods. Purchase prices can be entered manually, or linked to agreements, price lists, or fixed prices. Purchases can be created using a number of different methods, including from purchase agreements, requisitions, customer orders, or net requirements. Jeeves Purchasing can generate suggested delivery dates, based on supplier lead and transport times, to help you plan production and make purchases at the right time. There are also a number of standard forms and reports that allow you to monitor purchasing statistics and supplier performance.
Jeeves ERP supports multiple ways of managing deliveries, from direct dispatch at order entry to a route departure check at order entry, as well as shipment planning on orders or pick deliveries. Pick lists can be made either order by order or by using wave picking and the creation of pick assignments. The system also supports packaging, creation of different freight documents, part deliveries and back orders, joint deliveries, and generation of delivery notes.
