As we make some significant changes globally around our international supply chain, I am excited to have partnered with ACS. We could not have had made these changes without an industry leader such as ACS. I am more than confident we will hit our ROI and drive efficiencies within our direct import program with ACS leading the way.
ACS is a key partner in our overall supply chain. In collaboration with ACS, we are continuously making improvements to our overall supply chain especially in data quality that allows us to publish global KPI’s and manage our end to end partners.
General Electric Appliances selected ACS to be our 3PL for all production parts as well as finished goods inbound to the US. We have been very pleased with the success of the program and look forward to continued innovation. By utilizing Infor Nexus as the key application, we are able to leverage vendor booking and warehouse exceptions, which alert us to deviation from our standard process.
Ansell has seen a transformation in our ocean contracts management process since the implementation of the Infor Nexus contract sourcing tool from ACS. The tool allows our team to execute RFP’s and collaborate with all of our service providers with a regulated process. This makes us more capable and independent.
One of the main factors in us moving forward with ACS as our order management provider was for the comprehensive data that could be sent to Infor Nexus and then used to help with planning and exception reporting on the backend. Also, we run a lot of ad hoc data dumps to be able to answer one off questions that we historically were not able to answer, or it took us a long time to answer. Now we will always be able to answer any questions that are asked of us. I am not sure I could have said that before ACS and Infor Nexus
Moen uses the powerful reporting engine within Infor Nexus in three ways. Firstly it gives us the capability to run adhoc reports on demand. Secondly, we have setup standard daily/weekly reports that give an overview of the current state of the business, and finally, we use the flexibility of the reporting function to provide back support and detail for our monthly financial reporting and savings activities.
Our industry leading SCM application, Infor Nexus, is the cornerstone of our services at ACS. We design all of our solutions around the origin pillars of purchase order, vendor, carrier and documentation management
Our destination account teams form partnerships across all areas of our customer’s operations including logistics, purchasing, planning, DC operations and sales.
