Today, companies have to be increasingly responsive to the market in order to remain competitive in a global context with an ever-increasing demand for customised products.
Stock overloads and slow response times
Sometimes, when managing a warehouse, there is a tendency to increase stock levels in order to meet the demands of a customer order portfolio that is short, unpredictable and has rapid, customer-requested delivery times.
This solution succeeds in providing rapid responses to requests, but also means increased costs in terms of the expenditure required to purchase the excess materials (and the risk of them expiring) and the price of maintaining the warehouse.
The solution to your needs
One of the worries of those responsible for a Supply Chain is how to guarantee a high level of production flexibility while keeping stock levels low and taking product phase-out into account. The only way to achieve this is to adopt a tool, like IUNGO, that allows you to:
“The main strategic benefit of using IUNGO is the opportunity it offers to change MRP-generated production plans rapidly and automatically and therefore have lower stock values in the warehouse.
This achievement is the result of continuous, real time communication that IUNGO makes possible by integrating ERP and MRP systems, suppliers and buyers.”
“Right from the start, IUNGO proved to be the optimal solution. First and foremost, because of its incredible flexibility. For example, it allows us to attach any kind of attachment (graphics, pdf, drafts) directly to the order email. For the fashion sector, this is fundamental because many of our stakeholders are creative people.”

“We have approximately 300 suppliers and we have involved them all in the IUNGO project. The most exciting aspect is that 30 Asian suppliers who had never asked for more information, became operative immediately. Today, all 300 suppliers handle their orders via IUNGO. The software has proven to be a facilitator of lean dynamics and a tool that further simplifies already streamlined activities thanks to the adoption of lean production techniques.”
