Wireless Supply Chain Management
Implementing a wireless supply chain management solution enables drivers, sales individuals, office staff and re-stockers the ability to conduct their day-to-day business while being mobile. This may include:

  • The submission of inventory levels of products at a national retail level to help estimate existing an future sales
  • Query of back office systems to check on available products in inventory
  • Real-time access to manufacturing and delivery schedules
  • And more

Unlike most vendors that will attempt to sell your organization a cookie cutter solution or offer a generic product at expensive prices only to custom write the entire solution for you at an additional cost anyway, Westlake is different. Westlake takes a consultative sales approach to your organization working to provide you the most effective technology for your existing needs. We will work with you to help determine the right operating system for the hand set, the right wireless network, the right protocols and database structure to ensure your organization will receive the most optimal workflow scenario possible with your existing and future wireless assets

For example, Nextel Corporation, a Fortune 200 company located in Reston, Virginia contracted with Westlake to architect, develop and support ongoing, a completely integrated wireless supply chain management/field force automation solution over their existing commercial wireless network. (See entire case study: Wireless Carrier Goes Wireless).

The solution enables the entire Retail Account Executive sales force throughout all of Nextel National Retail to input inventory into a pre-defined form, track maintenance and marketing issues and other important retail information. The server collecting the data supports a variety of triggers and thresholds that enables management to offer virtually real-time support for their retail location customers. Every model phone at every retail location has been assigned a unique inventory level trigger to assist in instant inventory analysis.

Other functions include monitoring and regulating the visit interval of each retail account executive and capturing the GPS location of the submission of the record and comparing this against the location of the store to ensure visit compliance.
