Pre-Built yet Adaptable Solutions that Reduce Risk, Time & Cost

AVATA Express

Implemented on-premise or in the Cloud

For over 15 years, AVATA has been focused on driving innovation with Oracle’s Supply Chain Planning tools across all industries. We’ve taken the combined experiences and best practices of literally hundreds of  implementations and created AVATA Express solutions.

AVATA Express is our accelerated solution program that is industry and/or solution specific. An Express solution includes process templates, training material with pre-built UPK content, and pre-configured applications.  AVATA Express solutions can be implemented either on-premise or in the Cloud and compliment Oracle applications.

S&OP Cloud Express

Organizations today continue to struggle with balancing demand and supply over a longer horizon and understanding all the impacts and trade-offs between the shorter-term tactical planning and long term strategic planning necessary to meet financial expectations, capital budgeting, market fluctuations and company portfolio changes.

AVATA’s S&OP Cloud Express was specifically designed to vastly reduce the time required to implement a best-practice S&OP/IBP solution without sacrificing quality while achieving financial and operational improvements quickly. It is the only automated planning system that can integrate with legacy planning data systems through AVATA’s eLync Integration.

The AVATA approach has been proven time over time, by providing a process and configuration that is the “Best-Fit” for for our clients. We start with an assessment of the critical requirements that support a fully integrated solution utilizing Oracle’s S&OP Cloud application and help our clients establish the right configuration, processes and outcomes of the S&OP Cloud offering which allows for speed to value and early adoption of the integrated solution.

Simply Put:

S&OP Cloud Express aligns and synchronizes your short-term performance with your long-term strategic financial expectations. Oracle S&OP Cloud is the vehicle that allows an organization to project performance on a monthly basis against the long-term strategic plan.

AVATA Inventory Manager

Technology for inventory optimization often requires complex optimization solutions driven by specialized software, specialized skills to implement, and are often high risk endeavors. The AVATA Inventory Manager (AIM) is a prebuilt solution based on Oracle Demand Planning technology that provides insights into inventory imbalances in a simple solution that is easy to understand, and is comparatively a low-cost, low-risk solution for improving inventory health across your supply chain network.

Scheduling Board Cloud

Scheduling is the final step in a closed-loop planning process that ensures that our actions are consistent with financial and operational objectives. Production scheduling software can sometimes be overly complex and result in users backsliding into spreadsheet or other manual tools. AVATA’s Scheduling Board Cloud provides a straightforward and simple way to manage the schedule, respond to change, and keep plant floor activities in line with the plan.

Producing the right product at the right time, that’s what we want. Keeping stocks low, customers happy, and our plants running as efficiently as possible. The Scheduling Board Cloud engine will sequence production orders on a timeline and an interactive Gantt Chart. Schedulers can define upfront the ideal order sequence for the engine to incorporate product wheels (make white paint before blue) or sequencing desired setups.

Solution Benefits:

  • Automatic sequencing
  • Creation of pre-defined production campaigns
  • Ad-hoc schedule changes bydrag and drop on interactive Gantt chart
  • Demand and Supply Pegging to link demand with production
  • Maintenance of shop floor calendar
  • Graphical KPI Reporting which can be configured on the fly
  • Flexible scenario management allows the users to define, name,compare multiple scenario’s
    and to pick the final scenario to publish
  • Graphical KPI configuration allows quick scenario analysis and highlight possible pain points in the schedule
  • Oracle Cloud Connector lets you send back planned ordersas scheduled work orders into Oracle’s Supply Chain Cloud
  • Deployed as PaaS or On-premise

Enterprise Supply Chain Simulator

The Enterprise Supply Chain Simulator is an AVATA Express Cloud solution built and designed to do simulations on supply chain planning from customer/DC to manufacturing & sourcing. This simulator optimizes the output based on business parameters and constraints with user-friendly analytics and graphical displays.

TPM Express

TPM (Trade Promotion Management) Express is AVATA’s pre-configured solution based on Oracle’s Demantra Trade Promotion and Deductions and Settlement Management Modules. The solution, which can be integrated with SCM Cloud, has evolved from leading best practice industry process flows, collated from AVATA’s implementation experience across a range of industry & geographic verticals requiring Trade Spend solutions.

Based on industry best practices, TPM Express is specifically designed to reduce the effort and complexity required to implement a TPM solution without sacrificing core end-to-end functional and process design. Through all processes, TPM Express leverages Oracle’s PTP & DSM software to provide a consistent portal for all users to work through, driving quicker adoption of the solution and quicker return on investment.

Logistics Network Optimization

A Vital Link in the Supply Chain

Transportation management is different from other processes in the supply chain as many of those processes happen only once, but transportation must be addressed again and again throughout the life cycle of product development and delivery. With a shortage of capacity, tighter regulations, reduced staffing, and shrinking IT budgets, framed against a backdrop of increased customer demand, it is more important than ever to have a strategic and dynamic supply chain that can quickly adapt and optimize activities in a feasible and executable way.

The AVATA Logistics Network Optimization (LNO) environment allows for distribution network modeling decisions to be made from a holistic perspective by giving companies complete end-to-end supply chain visibility.  Leveraging Oracle’s SCM and logistics suite of products, LNO solves complex transportation network problems, improves agility and responsiveness and enables continuous refinement. A strategic supply chain with the visibility, capability and fluidity to execute more competitively results in a host of efficiencies.  The ability to manage and simulate the entire supply chain enables you to move from a static collection of discrete points and events to a dynamic, connected “DATA CHAIN” that flows and adapts with ever changing supply chain events and business conditions.

Key Benefits:

  • Reduced logistics costs
  • Improved distribution network and asset utilization
  • Increased inventory turns
  • Improved customer delivery compliance
  • Increased carrier capacity and collaboration
  • Improved cost to service
  • Reduced cross functional waste
  • Increased visibility to out of plan/network activity to promote root cause awareness and corrective action
  • Supply chain resiliency – ability to survive, adapt, and grow during turbulent change

AVATA Express solutions include predefined data sets and feature sets pre-configured to peer industry best practices. While templates for rapid software deployment exist across service providers, AVATA Express solutions have one key differentiator:  they are pre-configured, but designed with flexibility to support planning nuances critical to your unique competitive processes.  “Pre-built yet adaptable” is a critical feature as your organization matures and the requirements of the solution mature with you over time.
