Syncontext Supply Chain, an international supply chain technology firm based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, today announced the release of its new and innovative end-to-end fulfillment optimization system, SKUstream™, along with unveiling a fresh, new corporate identity.
Combining five solutions in one, SKUstream™ uses its robust data-driven requirement planning engine to optimize fulfillment centers from logistics resource planning, distribution center design and implementation, to daily slotting of items.
As with all Syncontext applications, SKUstream™ is cloud-based, allowing it to easily and consistently leverage operational data from an organization’s existing management systems.
With an emphasis on end-to-end fulfillment optimization, SKUstream™ integrates key continuous improvement principles with state-of-the-art algorithms to isolate and eliminate sources of unnecessary waste in fulfillment operations.
“When we talk about waste, we’re talking about every key area of waste in the average distribution center” said Robbie Cluett, Director of Business Development & Customer Success. “movement, space, product damage, time are all examples of the waste that SKUstream™ will detect and minimize. Ultimately, improving profitability.”
With decades of supply chain operational and consulting experience among Syncontext’s leadership team, not just on the conceptual and analytical side, but also in implementing the concepts and strategies themselves, SKUstream™ was developed with first-hand knowledge of the challenges being faced daily by supply chain executives.
“Supply Chain Executives are recognizing a more holistic approach to optimization and continuous improvement is necessary. You cannot just look at one or two parts of the operation anymore. There are trade-offs everywhere,” said Hector Orozco, President & CEO.
Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, which challenged even the most resilient supply chains, Syncontext gained industry recognition from leaders moving towards end-to-end optimization.
With the worst hopefully behind us, and with supply chains normalizing once again, Syncontext sees end-to-end fulfillment optimization as an essential part of every supply chain executive’s tool kit.
