Logistics Competency

Companies that engage in comprehensive performance measurement are much more likely to realize improvements in overall productivity. Assist realizes the strong relationship between the arcs of suppliers and customer integration to market share and profitability.

The difference between profitable and unprofitable operations can be attributed to a smart, integrated ERP solution that provides real-time measurement.

It requires that you completely understand how each supplier impacts your company's performance from manufacturing to warehousing to sales and distribution.

  • • Share performance measures and assessments with suppliers in a secure collaborative environment.
  • • Allocate scores and ratings to each supplier and review and compare the performance of suppliers by an overall rating category.
