Companies exploring RFID for purposes other than EPC compliance may not have strict deadlines, but they still assume similar risks. In the absence of best practices and clear, proven value for suppliers and manufacturers, companies should proceed with a well-defined RFID roadmap, based on carefully considered business objectives. This paper published by RedPrairie will focus on five essential steps to follow for successful RFID deployments whether one is responding to EPC-based mandates or simply trying to gain competitive advantage through RFID
This paper published by RedPrairie describes about the intricate timing involved with same day delivery operations. It has a tendency to cause extra work and stress for Fleet managers today. The environment is dynamic in nature and the ability to manage pick up and delivery routing has become more complex. One of the reasons maybe due to driver shortages, high fuel costs, and government regulations on top of the demanding customer service expectations.
This paper from RedPrairie explains Sarbanes-Oxley and IFRS. The high-profile corporate scandals of several U.S. based companies, most notably Enron and WorldCom, led Congress to act to restore public confidence in U.S. financial markets to help achieve this goal; it adopted the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) created under the auspices of the International Accounting Standards Board. RedPrairies supply chain technology solutions are not subject to SOX audits, and do not provide the type of outside services that would trigger an SAS 70 audit, detailed information documented and displayed by RedPrairie systems can be helpful for customer internal control processes.
This paper published RedPrairie by explains that TMS solution was targeted to baseline transportation execution capabilities. The TMS completed the order fulfillment cycle by providing the machinery to arrange and execute delivery of goods to customers, or in the case of an inbound sourcing path, to move goods from the suppliers facility to the companys. To facilitate both outbound and inbound supply chain needs, the TMS provides the ability to optimize shipment routing and consolidation in either direction or both simultaneously.
The convergence of advancements in technology, market demand and the globalization of logistics has lead to the emergence of a new supply chain execution applications area - mobile resource management systems. As mobile resource management system suppliers expand and integrate with other supply chain solutions to extend their functional capabilities, true global asset identification, management and optimization will be possible. Combined with existing industry initiatives such as pooling, mobile resource management systems will become more globally accepted, and critical technology for effective supply chain management.
