MSS Adds Tote / Asset Cycle Time Module to A.R.M.S. Tracking System
Cleveland, OH (October 20, 2003) – Manfredi Special Services (MSS) announced today that another technology upgrade has been implemented in the Asset Retrieval Management System (A.R.M.S.) internet based tote/asset tracking program. Specifically, the most current upgrade is the addition of a Tote/Asset Cycle Time module.
The Tote/Asset Cycle Time module and integrated management reports are designed to yield real-time, accurate information on each link in the supply chain. As the standard tote supply chain has a minimum of three to four links, the Cycle Time module will allow MSS and its clients to pinpoint the bottlenecks, which act as overall cost escalators to the supply chain.
Mr. Richard Manfredi, MSS President and CEO said, “The Cycle Time report allows our management team to present precise information and supply chain tightening opportunities to our clients. For example, if a tote is filled with product and sits in a finished goods warehouse for an extended period of time before being shipped to the customer, this represents an opportunity to improve asset utilization. The Cycle Time report adds real-time visibility to this and many other soft cost supply chain factors”.
Live e-demonstrations of the A.R.M.S. program are available at any time by contacting Eric Amstutz at 1-(888)383-2677 (ext 12).
