FusionOps, a provider of a single, integrated cloud-based analytics application for supply chain business users, has expanded its application to support the SAP Apparel and Footwear (AFS) and Financial Supply Chain Management (FSCM) solutions.  Powered by its cloud-based big data platform, the FusionOps application can support even the largest data sets with near-instant analytics on even the largest SAP data sets.

In addition, the company announced additional application features, including easy integration between FusionOps and Microsoft Office applications, plus a “snapshot” feature that can capture data, at a specific point in time to use in trending analytics.

According to Shariq Mansoor, founder and CTO of FusionOps, the company’s platform enables customers to perform rapid, interactive analysis on their supply chain data regardless of data volume.  For example, searching and reporting on tens of millions of rows of data requires just a few seconds. 

Now interactive analytics is available to the apparel, retail, and consumer products markets offering valuable supply chain information about such areas as customer shipments and accounts receivable that used to take months or years to develop that is now available immediately without upfront costs.

FusionOps now automatically extracts Apparel and Footwear (SAP AFS) data and incorporates it into its cross-functional supply chain data model for instant 360° supply chain visibility.  Users of the AFS solution can now leverage the FusionOps application to get immediate, best-practice analytics in areas such as customer deliveries, sales orders, and accounts receivable.

Financial Supply Chain Management (SAP FSCM) support extends the FusionOps application by integrating financial supply chain data into its cross-functional data model. FusionOps’ application integrates FSCM with manufacturing supply chain data in the functional areas of purchasing, production planning, order fulfillment, quality analysis, sales, inventory management, and MRP.

The FusionOps application removes data “silos” exposing all relevant data, regardless of origin, to provide business users with timely insights, quick identification of problem root causes, and hidden data relationships. 

Microsoft Office Integration and Snapshots

New capabilities added to FusionOps include the ability to download tables into properly formatted Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, and charts into Microsoft PowerPoint.  Another new feature, “snapshots,” enables end users to conveniently record KPIs directly from their dashboard for comparisons of supply chain performance over time.  Perfect order performance, for example, can be compared over quarters, months, or days, with all data stored in FusionOps’ secure private cloud.

The new features and subject areas are available immediately from FusionOps. Starting at $2,000 per month, FusionOps is a SaaS solution that requires no new hardware or software license investment or long-term contract.  For more information, visit http://www.fusionops.com.
