New Product Suite Provides End-to-End Solution for Supply Chain Needs

CUPERTINO, Calif., June 4 / -- Sockeye Supply Chain (formerly Sockeye Solutions), a supplier of collaborative supply chain solutions, today announced its Allegro Suite, a product suite that includes modules for inbound and outbound supply chain management, inventory management, demand management and supply chain event management. The new Allegro Suite provides enterprises with a broad range of supply chain management capabilities, including features that enable collaboration and inventory visibility.

"To compete in today's global markets, businesses are outsourcing operations in an effort to reduce costs, increase supply and reach new markets," said Brian Nickerson, CEO of Sockeye Supply Chain. "To realize the potential benefits of this strategy, enterprises need to improve information flow and accelerate decision making across the extended supply chain. The new Allegro Suite helps companies fulfill the next step in creating an efficient global supply chain by providing solutions that enable end-to-end visibility and collaboration with trading partners."

The Allegro Suite is built and deployed on the Collaborative Application Framework (CAF), a state of the art Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) platform, which is designed to deliver applications that address customer's unique business needs. The Sockeye approach allows companies to implement and deploy new applications rapidly and easily reconfigure the applications as business requirements evolve. The Allegro Suite allows Sockeye's customers to quickly adapt to change and solve problems fast at a lower cost.

A supply chain event management solution, known as Allegro SCEM, is included within the Allegro Suite. This flexible feature allows enterprises to set a number of time critical synchronization processes using real-time supply chain events, alert notification and problem ticketing. SCEM enables businesses to immediately act on a supply or demand problem to better manage inventory levels.

The Allegro Suite works in a multi-enterprise, multi-system and multi-language environment with a highly flexible architecture, making it a powerful solution for the most complex supply chain needs. The Allegro Suite modules can be combined and configured to support a wide range of customized requirements and solve real-world problems with supply chain collaboration.

Allegro Inbound

Sockeye's inbound supply chain planning module is focused on providing visibility and decision support to manage the replenishment of parts inventory from suppliers to manufacturers. It also includes a dynamic replenishment feature that allows for the co-management of inventory levels by the supplier and manufacturer to dynamically address any inventory level discrepancies in real-time.

Additionally, the module supports multiple replenishment methods based on the supplier/buyer relationship (e.g., strategic vs. non-strategic) and whether the part is critical/constrained or non-strategic.

Allegro Outbound sockeyesupplychain.com/oscp.html

Sockeye's outbound supply chain planning module is focused on the planning and monitoring of finished goods inventory movement through the outbound supply chain.

For operations planning, the outbound module allows creation of constraint-based production and shipment plans to synchronize supply and demand. For execution, the module provides the visibility and decision support to monitor and resolve problems caused by day-to-day disruptions to production, shipment and inventory plans.

Allegro Inventory Management

Sockeye's inventory management module enables enterprises to generate inventory targets for any location in the inbound or outbound supply chain. The module supports multiple methods of generating inventory targets to support items in different stages of their lifecycle and different inventory management strategies.

Allegro Demand Management

Sockeye's demand management solution enables enterprises to generate forecasts for finished goods. The forecasts are used to drive operational planning of the outbound supply chain. The module also supports consensus forecasting to promote alignment between sales and operations.

Allegro SCEM

Sockeye's supply chain event management (SCEM) module is a very flexible tool for addressing a wide range of time critical synchronization problems using real-time supply chain events, alert notification and problem ticketing.
