  • Mass update to determine cycle type, cycle frequency and last count date for items
  • Exception reporting that does not allow records to post until corrected, such as
    • Item is not in Items​
    • Stockroom location not found
    • On-hand quantity is not equal to on-hand quantity when cycle count is generated

Vendor Portal

The SyteLine (CloudSuite Industrial) /Process Vendor Portal enhances your vendor relationships by giving them direct access to ERP data that they care about. Viewing purchase orders, viewing consigned inventory, responding to a price requests, or updating a due date on a Purchase Order can now be handled directly by the Vendor.  Vendors can also submit new price breaks for their contracts.

Along with creating communication streams, the Vendor Portal can house product and support documentation and videos, while providing a graphical view of the vendors’ on time delivery metrics.

As with cost, implementation time is also dependent on the same factors mentioned above. LogicData offers multiple implementation methodologies that can be adapted to your specific needs and resource availability. Considering a very basic implementation of just the core functionality of SyteLine, and employing a LogicData managed implementation approach, time to value can be achieved in as little as 3-4 months. A full implementation of all core SyteLine functionality utilizing a standard implementation approach, and assuming full client resource availability, can generally be completed in 6 to 8 months. To determine the best implementation methodology and timeline estimate for your specific situation, please contact us.

The cost of software and implementation will vary based on many factors such as user count, functionality requirements, deployment, implementation methodology, customization, data conversion, integration, and internal resources. However, for a basic configuration of SyteLine annual subscription pricing can begin at approximately $18,000 annually for a minimum of 10 users or a one-time cost of $20,000 plus annual maintenance for a minimum of 5 users in an on-premise deployment. A primarily self-directed implementation of such a basic configuration, although not recommended, can likely be achieved for approximately $30,000. LogicData recommends our standard “train-the-trainer” implementation approach which is estimated to start at roughly $65,000 for a basic implementation. For further information on pricing specific to your needs, please contact us.
