Electronics customers choose SPOT because it reduces communication and coordination effort and increases transparency throughout the procurement process.
The electronics industry is characterized by short product life cycles, high innovation rates and a great variety of parts and modules. The growing risk of uncertainty in the supply of rare raw materials as well as the highly specific requirements for handling and transport make an increased administrative effort necessary to keep track of all orders and shipments.
The SPOT Messenger centralizes communication between everyone involved. SPOT Instructions makes it easy to specify and access shipping instructions for different orders. The SPOT Reminders & Alerts support the monitoring of important milestones by proactively reporting possible discrepancies. SPOT Warehousing helps you keep an overview of your stock in different warehouses, maintain low inventory levels, identify bad sellers, and mitigate the risks of product obsolescence.
Large distances between you and your suppliers can make it difficult to get the information you need at the right time, which can require an increased coordination effort, cause waiting times and unnecessary costs.
