SCP is a bolt-on system, and as such needs data from existing ERP, WMS, and other data sources. Quick and seamless integration is undoubtedly one of the biggest factors in the success or failure of supply chain projects. A long implementation means high costs and lost momentum which in turn can translate into a loss of interest by users and management.
One of SCP's biggest advantages is its ability to avoid the extra step of having a 3rd party provide downloaded data files. By utilizing SCP's Data Mapping features, we get data directly from where it sits by establishing direct connections to underlying ERP databases, Excel files, FTP servers, and much more. This methodology minimizes the number of steps that can break down, allows users to retrieve fresh data on demand, and eliminates any doubt as to where the data came from.
Because the flow of data is controlled and managed within SCP, the typical process of negotiating requirements and changes with constrained 3rd party resources is virtually eliminated. This makes implementing SCP unbelievably fast (2-3 weeks unbelievably fast). Not convinced? Check with current SCP customers about their SCP experience.
