Five Ways to Positively Impact Customer Retention and Business Operations


Maintaining strong business performance and retaining loyal customers requires continual vigilance and assessment. Establishing metrics that focus on value-added and customer- centric performance allows manufacturers to stay close to the pulse of market changes and dynamics. Learn how performance tools such as dashboards and reporting can help your company monitor performance and enable better and faster decision making.

Companies have also traditionally adopted cost accounting methods that focus on individual unit cost reductions and grouping large runs of the same product together to economize on production set-ups. The net effect is increased work in process, increased inventory, and accompanying increased costs and lower profitability. Lean manufacturing, on the other hand, employs a pull-based or demand-driven methodology that is predicated on only Read More

Aligning Risk and Finance in Banks: From Theory to Practice


After the financial crisis, banks are changing the way that they look at risk and finance integration, and these types of projects have been prioritized again. However, the path to successful risk and finance integration is not simple, and banks face a number of technology and organizational challenges. To understand these problems better and banks' aims for risk and finance integration, read this report on a survey by Chartis Research that questioned risk and finance professionals on these subjects. The report uses the survey results and interviews to explore the best methods for firms to implement risk and finance integration.

TEC Helps Geosynthetic Systems Find the Right ERP Solution


Geosynthetic Systems is a small North American company specializing in soil management solutions. Its focus is divided between two key markets: heavy construction and landscape construct. As the company’s needs expanded, the limitations of its software became more and more apparent. It wanted to move up to an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system that would support its current and expected growth, but found the process foreign, complex, and seemingly impossible to manage.

Since TEC does not sell software, and has no special arrangements with any vendors in this regard, it is completely impartial, and works exclusively in the best interests of its clients. The fact that TEC’s role was totally unbiased, clearly defined, and targeted at a successful outcome gave Geosynthetic Systems the comfort and confidence it needed to go forward with an ERP selection project that would liberate it from its outdated IT infrastructure.

The Essential Supply Chain


Supply Chain Management (SCM) once viewed as a way to obtain a competitive advantage, is now perceived as a logical and necessary extension of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). The reasons: First, traditional ERP systems lack the advanced planning tools necessary for companies to respond to an increasingly competitive business environment. Second, advances in computing power and data transmission enable disparate entities to communicate efficiently and at a low cost. Finally, vendors have observed the complementary nature of SCM and ERP and are engaged in consolidation of their product suites.

Quite predictably, users who accessed the ERP databases hoping for the insight needed to make good decisions were overwhelmed by the sheer volume of content.

Optimizing Bandwidth: Why Size Doesn’t Always Matter


Network managers have to balance the need for increased speed of response and the best possible end user performance, and the need to reduce costs.

Traffic on the network expands to fill the available bandwidth, resulting in degraded performance across the most congested links. Network managers have to be able to show that a link is experiencing congestion for a significant amount of time due to legitimate business usage before they can add additional capacity. But approaches such as peak or average utilization and traffic totals provide limited insight into and understanding of network congestion.

To optimize the use of existing capacity and make the business case for more bandwidth, network managers need to ask themselves a number of questions. In this white paper, a new approach to getting needed information about network congestion is discussed. Principles to consider for effective capacity planning are discussed, as well as the limitations to traditional approaches to managing network capacity, and a solution called burst utilization is given, to measure performance and save network managers time.

A burst-style view shows the links spending the most amount of time in a congested state and the time in that state. Using this information, the network manager can explore why the link is busy and whether additional bandwidth is needed, and identify any links where capacity could be reduced. By using existing bandwidth more effectively, they may be able to improve the end user experience.

3 Things Business Decision-makers Need to Know about SOA


Anyone even peripherally exposed to business media that touch on enterprise application technology has seen the term service-oriented architecture (SOA) bandied about in advertisements and articles. Given the central role of SOA in information technology, it is important to get beyond a buzzword level understanding. There are three key concepts surrounding SOA: granularity, Web services, and change management.

TransPromo in High-volume Statement Print Applications


Transpromotional marketing blends marketing messages with must-read printed material such as invoices, statements, and other notifications. The goal is to influence behavior and drive business volume—but not by stuffing brochures with a statement into the envelope. Instead, promotional messages can be targeted directly to a prospect s purchase patterns and known interests. Sounds great, in theory. So how do you do it?

Using Supply Chain Design and Optimization to Reduce Inventory


Historically, companies have invested in tactical and operational supply chain technology solutions. These solutions helped model and operate existing supply chains, without addressing overall supply chain design and strategy. Companies are increasingly turning to strategic solutions such as supply chain design and optimization (SCDO) to help satisfy customer demand while balancing limitations on supply and the need for operational efficiency.

Inventory and Lead Times - Understanding Decoupling Points


While inventory is necessary in manufacturing, most companies would like to reduce their inventory, but only if that did not cause problems. Managing inventory according to decoupling theory is the most effective approach to reducing (the wrong kinds of) inventory without damaging service level—without increasing the risk of shortages that disrupt production (components and materials) and hurt customer service (finished goods).

Product Review: GFI's LANguard Network Security Scanner


Performing patch management is one of the most tedious chores that must be completed by network administrators. While there are many patch management tools available, they can be expensive, have sharp learning curves, or are not deployable across all software platforms. One third party solution, however, GFI LANguard Network Security Scanner, version 5, is an affordable option that can scan the network and deploy patches efficiently while looking for other potential security vulnerabilities.
