Maximus – Integrated Inventory & Purchasing Process

Integrated Stock Management, Purchase Order Processing and Projects saves Maximus time and avoids shortages.

Maximus’ rapid growth resulted in the existing array of software, spreadsheets and manual processes being unfit for purpose. This meant that Maximus had no real-time, accurate stock information making reporting and analysis difficult and time consuming. Previously when a sale was made, the parts were marked on a job card manually. Not only was this time-consuming but there was no way to allocate stock, making accurate stock control impossible. The Solution Flowlens worked closely with the Maximus team to map the end-to-end process from Purchase Orders to Goods Received to ensure a joined-up workflow. Our Purchase Order Processing features linked parts, suppliers and costs meaning that Purchasing have enough lead time to get the best price. Dashboard report- ing allows each function to easily access relevant, real-time information that helps managers make better informed busi- ness decisions. The Benefits The Operations team is enjoying significant time-savings with the removal of miniMRP, spreadsheets and manual processes that have been replaced by a unified flow of information. Flowlens Projects and Jobs cards enable accurate kitting and planning of materials. Flowlens Purchasing Stock Management tools streamline day to day activity, and give real-time visibility of Orders Due, Stock Levels and Spar Parts demand.
