Ultriva by Upland Addresses Value of ERP Agnostic Solutions and Rapid Deployment with ITT Corporation

Ultriva by Upland’s ERP agnostic solutions and rapid deployment was recently featured in Quality Digest magazine. The article describes how one global leader, ITT Corporation has taken on this challenge with the help of supply chain technology innovator Ultriva by Upland Software.

Recently ITT initiated a lean application based on the concept of Kanban loops that govern material flow and replenishment processes across their extended enterprise value chains. Kanban loops are a mechanism that signals the need for inventory replenishment, an important tool in ensuring production lines are optimally stocked with necessary parts and components. Kanban signals trigger material coordinators to deliver items in the right quantity when and where required. As product is consumed in the production process, an order for depleted inventory is placed immediately, either via a physical Kanban card or electronically through a computerized e-Kanban system.

According to Frank Kapper, General Manager of Ultriva by Upland, an industry leading provider of cloud-based Manufacturing and Supply Chain Collaboration & Execution solutions, “Ultriva’s Electronic Kanban solution, also known as e-Kanban, ensures global manufacturers’ entire supply chain is constructed as a series of interconnected e-Kanban loops, both internal and external, with each loop optimally sized based on customer demand, and with material replenishment being driven by real-time consumption scans.”
