Manufacturing supply chains run on the rails of paper-based processes. From back-office work like inventory claims and invoice processing to logistics applications like bills of lading and freight lists, these documents don't just move goods; they ultimately determine how well customers are satisfied.
Shipment reliability demands visibility into your supply chain process. However, without connected document workflow, you can't make informed decisions. Inaccurate inventory counts lead to restocking problems and fulfilment delays. And having the wrong form or a missing record adds more work downstream.
Emerging markets have made it more important than ever for logistics documents to be connected and available. Fragmented document workflow requires more attention and manual intervention.
Distribution and manufacturing companies can accumulate millions of shipping and receiving papers annually. Companies also have to deal with increasing amounts of electronic information from mobile devices. As a result, employees can spend hours and even days searching through these documents for information that they often don't find.
