IT Solutions for typical Supply Chain Industry problems
Cargo security and safety of material assets, theft prevention
Ensuring cargo safety and preventing theft in the supply chain is a universal and important strategic task. If we talk about warehouse logistics often the security systems of the enterprise can not cope.
An important component of security is preventive measures - risk analysis and risk prediction. Forecasting, identification and transparency of work. Tracking, QR codes, blockchain, IoT, data analysis, machine learning and AI, video security services.
For example, an expensive part broke on the production line and needs to be urgently replaced. The item was bought, shipped and handed over to the repairman, but the item was stolen and resold, while malfunction was done buy less quality and expensive item. One of the solution options is QR codes and an identification system in warehouse logistics.
Tracking and cargo movement control
Cargo tracking is widely known problem in supply chain industry, as cargo meets lots of market players on its way from seller to buyer. Every voyage is kind of adventure, and sometimes this may be horror tale. In order to prevent that, we pay special attention to industry players' performance trying to decrease their routine and financial losses, help with security issues and optimizing business processes. IT technologies are perfect with that.
One of the our examples is DR. TEU — container shipping industry product. Dr. TEU provides comfortable and stable shipments tracking on port-to-port distance. It helps you to find and manage your shipments, avoiding possible issues on the way and warns you in time.
The complexity of implementing technological solutions
Employees often sabotage implementation, it is difficult for them to get used to a new format of processes, especially when there is no clear program for the implementation. This situation occurs when software companies write programs without taking into account realities and preferences inside customer's company. Another stumbling block which prevents 100% efficiency is underestimating projects' logic scheme and UX/UI which is crucial to your staff.
Companies involved in multi-modal logistics, supply chain management, maritime business & trading are in great need of big digital transformation, but the main question that still stands in their way is: “How to get things done in the most efficient way?”.
Some do not implement big solutions properly and lose their budget, others try to force the implementation of universal solutions and lose experienced staff who didn’t want to accept the new reality. All of this leads to the fact that expensive and complex solutions gather dust on the shelf, and that's one of the lightest of all negative results. In the most severe cases such politics provoke people to leave companies just to ''work in usual manner''. It scares the employer and consequences usually lead to "full stop'' command in new technologies implementation.
Systematic implementation, training of technical literacy employees, development and implementation of software solutions with IT companies that specialize in Supply Chain, use the micro-apps approach.
Supply chain cost optimization
A set of measures to optimize costs in the supply chain
Any organization that is associated with the movement of goods or transportation has a problem - how to optimize costs in the supply chain, but at the same time achieve maximum efficiency?
Universal methods do not exist. Everything is individual and depends on each specific enterprise. The only thing you can be sure of is using Information Technologies and automation, you can optimize costs and increase the efficiency of the enterprise in the supply chain.
The concept of the Micro App solutions for SCM as an additional IT service
Also, we produce micro apps for SCM as an additional IT service. Companies involved in multi-modal logistics, supply chain management, maritime business & trading are in great need of big digital transformation, but the main question that still stands in their way is: “How to get things done in the most efficient way?”. Some do not implement big solutions properly and lose their budget, others try to force the implementation of universal solutions and lose experienced staff who didn’t want to accept the new reality. Here in Codeska we preach a very effective approach to this problem — the concept of micro apps. That means, we have proposed to develop small solutions which are very well integrated with each other, thus making business processes easier and within planned budgets.
