Successful businesses work in collaboration with complete transparency across the entire supply chain. The manufacturing process is full of circumstances – complexity in the statistical forecast for manufacturing planning, timely order of raw materials to prevent material shortages, and excess inventory turning into a value. All of these processes require lots of attention and knowledge from supply planners and usually convert into too much manual work in Excel. Common issue? Meet Streamline, which is designed to match the manufacturer’s needs.

What distributors say about Streamline
Director, Logistics & Operations at Whalen Furniture
An employee used to spend about a day and a half updating Excel spreadsheets that had 60 items, and it was too cumbersome to use Excel. We were like firefighters, not supply chain managers. What took him a day and a half to do, now takes only seconds to update with Streamline. He can spend the rest of the time to analyze the Streamline data. The other divisions use Streamline and do not know how they managed without it. Whalen Furniture inventory had dropped by 36% with Streamline. The company has been able to eliminate two auxiliary buildings rented month-to-month. That has saved about $56,000/month in excessive stock costs for us.
CEO of Transgold
Streamline has been very helpful in reducing the time and effort required to calculate our purchasing requirements and placing our purchase orders. Previously we used complex spreadsheets which were quite cumbersome but Streamline has made the process at least 100% faster. After using it for more than 1 year, it has also resulted in a 5-10% reduction in stockholding with minimal impact on fill rate. Support from the team is excellent and timely, and there is continual work on the product with features and updates.
