Durham, NC -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/5/2006 -- According to Justin Diana, Chief Technology Officer, for Digital Kanban pioneer Datacraft Solutions, Inc. (www.datacraftsolutions.com) based in Durham, North Carolina, “Lean ROI is based on metrics; primarily cold, hard, RELIABLE numbers. Distributed financial data or paper-driven reports are incomplete, at best. The concept of data centralization, introduced through the use of Digital Kanban, solves this problem. Financial, inventory and performance numbers, stored electronically in a single location and available to all relevant parties allows quick analysis and quantification of key ROI values.”
ROI Measurements for Digital Kanban:
- Inventory Reduction
- Supplier Performance
- Stock Outs (reduction, elimination)
- Expediting (elimination)
- Efficient use of plant space
- Time to value (short implementation)
According to Founder Matthew Marotta, “Datacraft Solutions’ Internet-based on-demand delivery platform offers key benefits from the very beginning of an implementation – namely, the elimination of lengthy, complicated and expensive infrastructure upgrades before a company can even begin to see positive ROI. There is simply no faster or easier way to begin exploiting the power of Digital Kanban in a lean manufacturing operation.” Other departments fully support the benefits of digital kanban as well.
Datacraft Solutions has a vast client base including Pacific Scientific, Outokumpu, and Follett Ice. The Intelligent Supply Chain solution is growing exponentially.
