SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - January 14, 2014) - SERUS, a leader in extended supply chain management for high-tech companies, today announced the release of SERUS Analytics, an operations analytic solution to provide users with actionable insights about their external manufacturing operations. SERUS' customers will now be able to make faster and better decisions based on near "real time" insights derived from large volume of manufacturing and supply chain transactional data. The new capability announced today includes operations performance analytics, executive dashboards (both Web and Mobile) and predictive analytics.
From Big Data to actionable manufacturing intelligence
Leaders in Semiconductor, Network equipment, Storage and other high tech verticals today rely heavily on their manufacturing partners to manufacture, assemble and ship their products. Data residing with these partners is becoming increasingly critical to all aspects of business success including predictable product quality, delivery performance and for internal and regulatory compliance. SERUS' SaaS platform and solutions today collect, aggregate, and summarize millions of transactions a day from external manufacturing partners. The analytics capability announced today transforms this data into a full spectrum of analysis and data visualization for operational and financial guidance. Answers to critical strategic and operational questions can now be answered in minutes and hours versus days and weeks. These analytics will allow SERUS customers to further improve operational performance including lower inventory, faster introduction of new products, reduced manufacturing errors and lower excess and obsolescence (E&O) from product transitions.
Partnership with Tableau for Data Analytics
As part of today's announcement, the company also signed an OEM agreement with Tableau Software, to embed Tableau Desktop for its data analytics capabilities for all SERUS' solutions. "The ease of use of our new analytics tool will enable our customers to quickly spot the issues they need to see to improve their business," said Rohit Thukral, SERUS' Sr. Vice President of Products and Engineering.
