Supply-chain software developer Vigilance is releasing Wednesday three packaged versions of its event-management software, intended to offer customers tools that can be implemented rapidly.
Vigilance's flagship SCEM (supply chain event management) Suite 3.0, released in March, allows users to manage supply chains and track disruptions, such as bottlenecks, late shipments and inventory-level dips. The three new packages build on the SCEM Suite 3.0 template, adding preconfigured business rules that assist customers in quickly deploying and using the software, according to Vigilance.
Vigilance Supplier Management is designed to detect late supplier shipments and product quality problems, and enable Web-based collaboration and problem resolution between suppliers and buyers. Vigilance Customer Management is focused on management of sales orders, with tools to track inventories of finished goods, identify orders at risk of shipping late and speed correction of shipment-delaying problems. Vigilance Production Management is designed to detect and aid in the automated resolution of operational problems such as equipment malfunctions, low yields and slowdowns.
The three packages are available worldwide. Vigilance Supplier Management carries an average set price of US$125,000 for up to 20 users, including installation, training and support, Vigilance said. Pricing for the other two packages varies based on customer needs, according to the company.
Vigilance, a 4-year-old company located in Sunnyvale, California, is exploring development of several more vertical packages based on the SCEM Suite 3.0, said Vice President of Marketing Dave Busch. It plans to release additional packages later this year. Functions that may be addressed include packages for treasury operations and to counter money-laundering, he said
