Jada vendor management inventory and demand planning system is suitable for businesses looking to manage inventory holding costs and track service levels. SCP is offered as a best of breed application that is ideal for both midsize and large companies.
SCP includes material requirements planning (MRP) and a long list of helpful reporting tools. The solution integrates with other supply chain and ERP software suites to complement pre-existing systems.
Jada SCP supports multi-tier models that help businesses to manage multiple locations like distribution centers, warehouse, point-of-sale or combination of above stores through a single screen. With multi-level billing, businesses can generate a top-down plan for materials. The solution offers customizable color-coded reports for generating and reporting various supply chain activities. Reports can be exported into Excel, PDF, ASCII, HTML and other formats.
Both in-house and online training is provided.
When Jada representatives told us they could implement their system in two weeks, we were skeptical. When they told us we would spend around $50,000 but save more than $1 million in a few months, we were really skeptical. When they follow through with both of their promises, we were impressed. We think SCP is a great product. It addresses all of our pain points surrounding supply chain planning projects, while end users and managers find it easy to use.
My first impression and what held my attention was the ability to see all my planning requirements on the main screen. I am able to get an accurate picture of our activity with one glance and I can review the exception reports to see which items need to be addressed. This enables me to focus on the areas that need it, without wasting time reviewing processes that are working well. I am also impressed with the high level of automation. The automatic status email I get every day gives me invaluable information. SCP is very easy to use, screens and reports are color-coded for easy reference and drill-down capabilities give detailed visibility over all item data. We save over $2 Million dollars our first year with SCP; another $1.8M the 2nd year; and this past year are down 40% from last year and our cash flow has improved dramatically.
I would like to see an executive summary or dashboard to immediately see our current situation and some detail. Right now, the reports handle this information, but I still have to run them or have them emailed to me.
SCP has helped us increase our turns and reduce our safety stock. It has also helped us gain new customers and better support existing customers by using Vendor Managed Inventory.
Forecasting used to be done by the Sales Force, estimating "by feeling" of demand, no formal software or method was applied for the forecasting of products. As our division grew, we needed a better method. We've been using SCP 4.0 for 5 years now. We forecast both finished goods and raw materials and take advantage of their VMI (Vendor Managed Inventory) capabilities. The beauty of SCP is you can see everything on one screen so it is very easy to detect an error of demand. The system is very user friendly and it integrates very well with our product management software in order to obtain numeric information on real demand directly from everyday use.
I have specific reports emailed to me through the system daily to keep control of our inventory and review forecast vs. history. I also review the manufacturing and purchasing reports weekly to monitor cash flow.
Sometimes SCP does go down. Unfortunately, we usually discover the problem originated from our servers and not the software. When this happens, tech support from JMS usually helps us determine the problem.

I have not used SCP much yet, but I can already see that it will make it a lot easier to see the mistakes, and since my parameters give me time I can correct them and not have future problems. I found that the main screen is friendly and easy to understand...looking at it you can already see what you need to do...no hassle needed! My overall experience has been very good.
One feature that I though made a diference is the fact that you are able to put safety measures and parameters for separate classes of items. You can really custom your items to what you actually want to consider. The system takes into consideration what you put as ideal and easily shows you when you need to produce.
What I though was most challenging about the software is that the reports are a little hard to build, once you have them done they are very easy to extract, but trying to build the one you want to see can be a little tricky at times.... also some reports could have a better layout...

I like the ability to view details by week or month, the ability to export the information to reports and the ability to have manage certain data in multiple databases.
There's not much I do not like about it. I guess the one thing I would change would be the ability to type directly over the item number just in use, so that you don't have to use the mouse to highlight it and then change it or use the drop down box to go to the next item.
Take the information you have and give it to the makers of SCP. Have them dump it in the system so it can show you what it can do and all of the information you can retrieve from it.

At first it was the affordability factor but upon inspection, this product is just as good as any high-end supply chain planning system in the market. The best part is the support provided by SCP. Our installation was complete and running in under 2 weeks.
I have been a user for almost 10 years and have no complaints.
Take the time to review and understand what SCP has to offer. It is very dynamic and flexible. Combined with the support provided, you have a great chance of improving your process almost overnight.
