Common product lifecycle management pain points
Bringing products to market is hard work. Here are some of the struggles we hear about every day.
“The information I need is all over the place”
Spreadsheets, PDFs, print outs, email attachments… we’ve heard it all. Surefront PLM centralizes all of your customers’ product data across every level of their organization.
Surefront’s retail PLM lets customers select data points to share with anyone on the team, and external suppliers, with the click of a button.
“My buyers are spending 75% of their time on clerical work, and only 25% of their time with products and suppliers.”
Surefront reduces the time it takes to set up products in systems from 3-5 days per product, to 5 minutes.
By significantly reducing the time needed to bring products to market, we free up buyers' schedules to focus on sourcing and relationship building. Surefront helps retailers and suppliers operate at full capacity with 50% employee headcount.
“It takes weeks, 30 different versions of Excel documents, and 100s of emails just to get one product from the ideation phase to initial purchase order.”
With Surefront's retail PLM, sales teams can search and select products from their catalog, build a customized quote, and send it out to their customer within 30 minutes.
That's 10x faster than using Excel spreadsheets and emails. Partnering with Surefront ISV will exponentially increase the value proposition of your technology offering.
“Our customers have already invested in a great ERP system, but they're still using pencil and paper to confirm POs.”
Product data gets lost when it doesn't have a centralized home. That's where we come in!
Surefront provides a home for your customers' product data, while giving them the ability to easily collaborate with external vendors.
“Part of our process works, but inaccurate data is stalling our customer's ability to confirm POs.”
It's not easy to confirm product orders. A simple typo can lead to weeks of additional emails, texts, and Excel Sheets. Surefront helps retailers and suppliers get every detail right, the first time around, in one simple system.
Our SmartCatalog provides robust product visuals with an in-app sticky note feature. Just select an image/data set and click "share" to let external collaborators in on the process. Do it all in one place, in seconds to increase order accuracy, while reducing the time it takes to confirm a quote.
Adding value to your SAP offering:
PLM software in the greater retail ecosystem
A retail PLM system handles every step of the product lifecycle. The data stays centralized, from merchandising to nailing down product details, from production to shipping and logistics, and even selling the product on store shelves! It works seamlessly with SAP's ERP modules and any additional tools in clients' retail technology stack.
This means fewer emails, PDFs, and Excel spreadsheets are necessary to communicate with external vendors. The product lifecycle management process is centralized and quotes can be customized in a single click.
Note: Clients maximize value when implementing PLM software prior to –– or in tandem with –– SAP ERP implementations and upgrades.
