UNIGUM PRODUCTS ALWAYS ON-HAND IN YOUR WAREHOUSE

Consignment Stock is the solution implemented for Customers who need quick, automated management of PPE restocking, especially for production processes where lack of stock could negatively impact the entire production chain.
To meet this type of need we have recently developed a solution that allows you to manage warehouse stock through a single platform, offering ample opportunities for integration and communication between our management system and that of the customer. The merchandise is always available at the Customer’s warehouse and the change of ownership occurs only when it is withdrawn ,exactly when it is needed, ensuring optimization of the processes, and fulfilling the traceability and development obligations in the current legislation.

ADVANTAGES

Adoption of a Consignment Stock process provides significant advantages in supply chain efficiency:

REDUCTION IN CAPITAL INACTIVITY
> the merchandise only changes ownership when it is removed from the warehouse, and therefore exactly as needed.
> this reduction does not have any impact on the availability of the merchandise, which is physically present at the user’s premises, creating just-in-time management.

REDUCTION IN MANAGEMENT COSTS
> completely automated stock management calibrated to the Customer’s needs allows for the elimination of costs related to stock management and order issuing by the purchase office
> automation of the processes cuts down the necessary management time
> the ability to manage the stock level, rotation, and movement in real time, allows rapid intervention if the customer’s needs change
> the ability to manually request restocking covers possible peaks in consumption;
> integration with the customer’s management information (job order, service order, cost centre, etc.), which can be customized upon withdrawal, allows proper communication throughout the entire supply chain, from logistics to administration

INTEGRATION OF CUSTOMER AND SUPPLIER PROCESSES
> the communication opportunity offered by the web technology allows real time information integration on all connected management systems
> the use of a shared centralized system allows proper traceability of the information and immediate availability for both

INFORMATION SHARING
> information sharing on the platform allows visibility of the stock in real time for all subjects involved in its management
> ability to view the stock across sectors at various warehouse, allows a comprehensive view of the Customer’s situation
> information sharing allows greater customization of the Customer-Supplier relationship in relation to the service level
