Supply Chain Systems | Sandfield

Visibility & collaboration for your business.

Today we are seeing many of our local and international existing and prospective clients’ core businesses expand into covering the entire supply chain.

Sandfield’s dedicated supply chain team builds software from existing frameworks to adapt and match these changing business needs. Identifying the intricacies but common elements of supply chains is in our DNA.

To ensure a high functioning supply chain, the first and most important step is making it easy for stakeholders to participate in that supply chain. The role a best practice digital supply chain management system plays is in connecting and coordinating all participants outputs in a digital chain ecosystem.  

   

Sandfield’s supply chain systems have helped transform our trucking and stevedoring business to true Supply Chain Logistics

- Ray Connell, CIO, Qube Ports and Bulk

Flexible & adaptable

Our custom digital supply chain systems make these connections, and we can also work around the edges to integrate your existing systems.

More clients are choosing SaaS over ERP because they need to incorporate capabilities like health & safety compliance tracking and other systems required for specialised needs, these changes can seem too hard with an ERP. Our supply chain systems bring together a well-orchestrated ecosystem that leverages the ‘best of breed’ applications approach.

We have a depth of experience across a range of industries including: transport, logistics, shipping, automotive, fresh exports and mining.

Anytime, anywhere access

Our supply chain approach centres around taking business processes and putting them in the hands of people who matter. With mobile apps, we take this approach literally. For 15 years, we’ve been deploying mobile apps formerly trapped as desktop systems, to ensure supply chain systems are device agnostic. We’ve been able to continue to grow this core skill as technology makes business possible in any location. We apply our highly technical skill sets and business process knowledge to integrate densely complex business processes into a user-friendly UI.

Best of breed
