Communicating Effectively With Your Supply Chain
Effective communication between brands and their supply chain partners can be a very difficult process and a variety of factors, such as language barriers, time zone differences and sample costs can contribute to frustrations when maintaining these relationships. With the complexity of travel in today’s world it is no longer viable to simply ‘jump on a plane’ and discuss sample options. Shipping out samples can be expensive and often there are delays in production that have a knock-on effect further down the chain.
To get a product to approval stage can be a long and drawn-out process for all stakeholders involved in the supply chain, especially without a suitable product information system or range planning tool available. Product development is done through emails, Excel sheets and Dropbox folders which can lead to fragmented, incorrectly translated information and a protracted product approval process open to errors, costing the business time and money.
Empowering teams with the correct range planning tool will facilitate a quicker turnaround time from white images through to 3D renderings, relieving them of pressure and frustrations. You need a collaborative range planning platform that combines developing product information with the ability to automatically translate languages, enabling all stakeholders to communicate effectively throughout the supply chain.
aViewPro is our collaborative range planning tool that delivers sophisticated real time feedback, tracked reactions and enables discussions to be had around product development, all instantly translated through Google Translate.
aViewPro is highly visual, therefore the need for multiple rounds of samples in the supply chain workflow is significantly reduced and replaced with your stunning 3D renderings, images, and video, all of which saves you time, money and delivers a greater product experience for all parties.
