Amber Road’s Material & Product Development solution provides companies with the ability to leverage enterprise data for improved decision making related to product development, sampling, material selection, costing and supplier selection. Collaborative product development ensures that retailers can track each step of the process and receive proactive alerts to potential problems. Specification management capabilities allow for building out bill of materials, specification of labels and tags, product construction descriptions and detailed instructions. Each standalone, yet collaborative solution unifies critical product, cost and supplier information to accurately estimate and compare actual and simulated product costs. Additionally, design standards, seasonal color palettes, points of measure, and size ranges are managed and monitored in one system.
Companies that understand the business value of automating and optimizing their supply chain operations have achieved greater visibility, become more agile and competitive, and reduce sourcing costs across the board.
