Industry: Direct-to-consumer ecommerce retailer
Product: Long-duration food kits
WMS: Deposco, MoveHQ, legacy homegrown
ERP: NetSuite, Maersk, legacy homegrown
File storage: Dropbox, SharePoint
Other: Amazon FBA, Slack, email alerts
Pain Point: Scaling supply chain operations, focused on inventory visibility, to keep up with the retailer’s 300% year-over-year growth
Value Proposition: Unify inventory data across their value chain — to stop manually managing inventory data in Excel files
Opportunity: The supply chain team had to manually pull inventory data from their network of third-party logistics (3PLs), shippers and suppliers.
Solution: PorterLogic’s inventory management system unifies their view of their complete inventory position by automatically pulling data from internal and external sources, including on-hand, on-order and in-transit inventory, into a single place.
Opportunity: The retailer’s unique processes, including kitting, made calculating an accurate view of their inventory levels difficult.
Solution: PorterLogic’s visual UI builder displays multiple views of their inventory to effectively manage their inventory, including a network-wide view, a warehouse-level view and a component-level view.
One UI is a scenario forecasting tool that allows the company to analyze different inventory positions to maximize the number of kits they can build.
Opportunity: Several of the retailer’s fulfillment partners did not have APIs for the supply chain team to connect with to access inventory data.
Solution: PorterLogic can connect to any system — even those without APIs — to pull inventory data nightly/automatically.
The daily checks help the retailer optimize for low-inventory thresholds, items on backorder, warehouse capacity and significant inventory level fluctuations.
