On-Site Order Management Assessment

A 2 or 3 day on-site visit by Zequent specialists to ascertain the general applicability of Order Management (OM) to your firm.  Zequent’s specialists meet with the firm’s knowledge workers (demand manager/master scheduler, planners, schedulers, buyers and production supervisors) and operations management to discuss the current control processes and to determine how OM can be applied to the maximum benefit.

Assessments can be in association with an on-site, live demo or simply to ascertain the roadblocks to obtaining a 97+% on-time shipment performance.  Actual travel and living expenses are re-billed to the requesting firm.  Zequent’s standard consulting rates apply when the assessments are not in anticipation of a live demo.

Demonstrations

2 unique but highly informative demos are available:

  • A “canned” data demo from our cloud server.
A demo using “canned” data can be conducted virtually at a moment’s notice.  It’s great for exploring OM concepts in the early stages and can be conducted via a GoToMeeting session or in conjunction with a Zequent on-site Order Management Assessment visit.

  • A live data demo from the user’s server.
In a live data demo our Order Management (OM) software is loaded to the client’s ERP server and OM’s data warehouse built directly from the client’s ERP data.  This demo, as you can imagine, takes some coordination and preparation so lead times generally range from 1 week to 10 days.  While the demo can be conducted remotely it is best conducted at the client’s site

  
No Obligation Trial

  A 30 Day, no obligation trial usage of Order Management is available.

As with the Live Demo above, our Order Management software is loaded to the client’s ERP server and OM’s data warehouse built directly from the client’s ERP data. Any required tuning is incorporated and the client’s personnel exposed to the revised Standard Work supported by the application software and OM’s unique methodologies.
