The Manchester-based company is working in partnership with transport planning and fleet optimisation specialist OPSI to help companies use their internal and external fleets of vehicles more cost-effectively, with savings of up to 20 percent.
OPSI’s Planning Logistics and Transport Optimiser (PLATO) logistics software fits with K3’s SYSPRO ERP system. SYSPRO enables manufacturers to shrink time to market; from initial design through production and out of the factory gate, providing seamless integration with both financial and distribution modules.
PLATO is a central management system that makes the transportation process more efficient and cost-effective. It manages and enables the visualisation of the entire transportation process, from order inception to financial administration for external hauliers.
Commenting on the software, Sam Nudelman, Marketing Director of OPSI, said that, depending on the type of enterprise, companies could see fleet cost savings of 10-20 percent.
K3 offers solutions in enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management, advanced planning and scheduling, warehouse management, human resources and e-business and has more than 3,000 customer installations in over 30 countries.
