Case Study for FTI providing help in Business

OTM is being implemented on a Manufacturing Organization site where the finished goods have a small shelf life and are expected to reach the customers in 3 days in order to avoid decreased number of waste goods. The general feeling about this parameter in organization is good and satisfactory .Thus the organization with the help of FTI analyzes past historical data % on time delivery(KPI) that to measure the level at which they are performing right now. This acceptable level is defined as a target can be used by the organization to define a contract with new Service Providers whose services will organization wishes to seek in the near future. Also, after a certain period of time to evaluate how are the new service providers performing can be obtained from FTI.There are inbuilt features in FTI like a Carrier Scorecard which provides the users a comparative view of all service providers with respect to each other ;based on the factors which are important for the clients business. If the new service providers are not able to meet the defined service levels then with the help of FTI ;a sound base is provided to client to showcase the relevant data and renegotiate the rates in contract based on performance and delivery levels.
