R4 ENTERPISE – DRP
Royal 4 Systems Distribution Requirements Planning Software has been developed and continually enhanced over the past 38 years to our customers’ specifications. Our system not only provides data from our modules, but it also integrates with our customer’s systems. This provides unique and accurate data with detailed and up to date info. With all this data, the requirements stand out, and distribution planning is made simple.
“Being a food manufacturer operating on lean principles with complex distribution we required a tightly integrated system that would be able to scale out to all of our locations. We are happy with our decision I am pleased to endorse this fine organization to any company looking for supply chain services.”
“In addition, while we were aware of other systems that could handle our requirements, we were convinced by Royal 4’s efforts in creating and deploying a test system that used our data that they had the right solution. Royal 4’s technology, support, and commitment to be excellent is second to none.”
“Our decision was based on Royal 4’s 4th generation database platform and the ability to handle our unique business processes including but not limited to: Complete vault management, commercial project tracking, customer online access, and customer and dispatch tasking ERP integration.”
LEANER INVENTORY with R4’s DISTRIBUTION REQUIREMENTS PLANNING
Accurate forecasting is the best way to keep your inventory in step with sales. Minimize the twin problems of stockouts and overstocked conditions. Overstocked conditions tie up both money and storage space that could be used to improve the bottom line.
FEWER LOST SALES with R4’s DISTRIBUTION REQUIREMENTS PLANNING
Orders lost to stock-outs many times are gone forever. Our forecasting module is a tool that allows management to determine, with reasonable accuracy, what the projected sales of a product would be over a period of time.
EZ DROP SHIPPING with R4’s DISTRIBUTION REQUIREMENTS PLANNING
The R4 purchasing module (PO) integrates with IM, AP, OP, MRP, DRP, and WISE and is capable of converting requisitions from Drop Shipments, MRP, DRP into purchase orders. Dropshipping logic permits direct shipments from vendors to customers without creating virtual receipts.
INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY & EFFICIENCY
DRP attempts to balance the inventories and meet the various facilities’ needs by generating re-supply orders to purchase products from other facilities or manufacturing locations. The DRP module executes requirement plans, driven by inventory policies and transfers requirements through the MPS and MRP modules to the supplying locations. This results in reduced inventory investment, reduced purchasing costs, increased productivity, and improved customer service.
