Rohm and Haas Uses Elemica's Terminal and Warehouse Solution
December 4, 2008
EXTON, PA – Elemica, a business-to-business supply chain execution network, has announced that Rohm and Haas Co. has implemented the Elemica Terminal and Warehouse Solution (TW) to gain visibility into inventory, orders and shipments. With the Elemica TW Solution, Rohm and Haas will significantly improve operating efficiencies and service capabilities, resulting in higher customer satisfaction levels, greater control over business processes and reduction of excess costs in the supply chain.
“The Elemica Terminal and Warehouse Solution drives efficiency by eliminating multiple entries of the same data, automating processes, and removing transactional and communication barriers with our external partners,” said Ed Beaver, Business Process Manager, Rohm and Haas. “Terminals and Warehouses can reduce our time-to-invoice because we have faster data entry with fewer errors and better visibility into inventory and customer shipments.”
“As supply chains grow in complexity, and more parties are involved, the extended enterprise can be plagued by inaccurate or out-of-date data, discrepancies in on-hand inventory levels, and non-optimal performance of terminals and warehouses,” said Bill Wolfe, eSolutions Manager at Elemica. “Elemica’s Terminal and Warehouse Solution replaces manual approaches with automated processes that reduce costs in the logistics supply chain. Fewer errors, along with accurate data on inventory levels, results in less overtime and rush shipments to meet customer service expectations.”
Elemica’s Terminal and Warehouse Solution is built on the Elemica Connected Solution, a high-performance, hosted integration platform that utilizes a Software as a Service (SaaS) architecture to quickly connect and provide seamless data exchange between Rohm and Haas’ SAP system and its trade partners’ computing environments. The network provides a comprehensive view of processes and greater visibility into interactions among partners. Carriers, suppliers, shippers, 3PLs, terminals and warehouses connect to the network to share real-time information including global visibility of inventory and shipments, proof of delivery, exception management alerting, and documentation. Performance metric reports of on-time deliveries, missed appointments and miscellaneous charges drive continuous improvement programs.
Rohm and Haas is able to maintain optimal inventory levels and eliminate stock-outs. Order and shipment cycle times are shortened, resulting in quicker invoicing of customers.
