Cupertino, CA, 95014
USA



Press release date: March 19, 2014

Ultriva sponsored a supply chain webinar addressing visibility and communication with global suppliers. The March 12th webinar titled, "Global Risk Management and Supplier Visibility," was well-attended. The unique Q A format webinar was hosted by Supply and Demand Chain Executive Magazine.

The presentation covered the importance of supplier visibility and the many aspects of global risk management such as shipping delays, missed deadlines, seasonal swings, as well as the unpredictable (weather, political unrest). Regulatory issues and conflict minerals were addressed as well.

Ultriva CEO and founder, Narayan Laksham, was asked to be a guest panelist among the supply chain experts. Laksham is committed to helping manufacturing companies collaborate with suppliers and gain true supply chain visibility. He is also a co-inventor of the “Inventory Optimization Tool (IOT),” that can identify parts best suited for Kanban replenishment and estimate the potential savings. IOT helps customers to size the Kanban by computing the usage, safety stock and lot size. During the last decade, Laksham has visited over 150 manufacturing facilities worldwide to strategize on End to End Pull processes. He is the author of several articles including “When Push Comes to Pull, Kanban Wins.”
