As an end-to-end supply chain management system, the Sucuhi GRID incorporates aspects of PLM and ERP software. While the GRID can serve as a single solution, we recognize that companies have made significant investments into other software that are integral to current business operations. While these systems go deep into one section of the supply chain, they don’t create full visibility as a single-source-of-truth. Historically, the content these systems track remains within the department that uses the software with data periodically extracted and sent through email or other communication channels as needed. For example, in the fashion industry, a technical designer may download a tech pack and send it to a patternmaker.
The GRID approaches these bespoke processes in a unified method. Connect all of your company’s supply chain participants and provide them access to the relevant data. If your business already uses other systems, the GRID pulls their existing content to create a single view of all of your data. The GRID securely stores all communication and requires approval before linking the data sets. By integrating a PLM and/or ERP with the GRID, companies can track data like issued P.O.s and raw material usage against the production process and available inventory.
Linking these historically bespoke systems into the GRID increases efficiencies through intuitive reporting, real-time collaboration, and a single platform to organize files and data. Digging through hundreds of emails or files is no longer a sustainable supply chain strategy to succeed in the digital age. Connectivity across a company’s entire organization is necessary to create repeatable, optimized processes. By integrating a PLM and ERP with the GRID, you drive forward the commitment to drive forward your business through actionable insights based on real-time data.
