Maintain sales forecasts by product at both business level and customer level for major customers and multiples.
Monitor actual sales performance against forecast and adjust forecasts as required. Monitor your delivery performance against customer expectations.
Powerful system for “holding stock” for major customers without distorting order intake, automatic updating of holding stock when actual orders are received. Protect stock commitments to customers and eliminate the risk of failure to deliver.
Caliq provides your buyers with configurable buying tools for making the right decisions and ensuring that you are buying the correct quantities and for the right dates.
Comprehensive buying screens enable buyers to view product order intake and invoiced sales for the last 12 months/52 weeks, view forecasts, see current stocking levels as percentages of last year and this year’s sales and view recommended purchasing quantities based on user-defined algorithms.
As purchase order quantities are entered, buyers can view accumulated values and CBM for container utilisation as well as seeing landed costs.
Purchase orders emailed with attached expanded product data in Excel including comprehensive specifications, label requirements, compliance requirements, packaging instructions, sample requests etc ensure that suppliers have all information required to supply on time and on spec.
Changes in delivery dates communicated are reflected automatically with a single update process across all affected purchase orders and lines, stock availability and estimated delivery dates on all affected sales orders and lines with communication options for both suppliers and customers.
This powerful feature provides complete control and visibility over shipping consignments from the point of booking through to receipt into your warehouse.
From the booking advice from your shippers you can create each consignment complete with the bill of lading covering one or more purchase orders, FCL or LCL. Multi-container shipments are supported and with calculated landed costs of every product you can see the value of incoming stock “on the water”.
On notification of ship dates from your shippers, a single date entry against the consignment updates all purchase order lines covered by the consignment and also updates estimated delivery timescales across all sales orders waiting on the goods, ensuring that your staff and customers have the most up-to-date and accurate indication of delivery.
If your shipper offers integration facilities, Caliq can send and receive consignment data to automate this process even further.
