Over the past decade, companies have reported up to 65% inventory reduction and savings of over $2 million by adopting SCP 4.0 by Jada Management Systems. This vendor management inventory and demand planning system is ideal for businesses looking to lower inventory holding costs and increase service levels. SCP is offered as a bolt-on best of breed application that is ideal for both medium-sized and large companies.
SCP is a manage-by-exception system, and includes material requirements planning (MRP) and a long list of helpful reporting tools. This best of breed software can integrate with other supply chain or ERP software suites to complement pre-existing systems.
We like that Jada Management Systems understands what users want - a simple, intuitive user interface that increases user acceptance, and an implementation process that only takes a couple of weeks. Jada Management Systems reports its clients typically see a return on investment in only 6-12 months, making it a great choice for those that want to see results immediately.
One aspect of Jada Management Systems that is especially unique is its "Proof of Concept" implementation. Essentially, buyers can reduce their risk by opting to have Jada's team visit their location, implement SCP to a "reasonable working level," and let buyers try the system for a few weeks without fully buying it. Buyers pay only for travel costs through the program, and buy only when they know the system works well for them. This program is very unique and rarely seen in the supply chain management software market.

I like the ability to view details by week or month, the ability to export the information to reports and the ability to have manage certain data in multiple databases.
There's not much I do not like about it. I guess the one thing I would change would be the ability to type directly over the item number just in use, so that you don't have to use the mouse to highlight it and then change it or use the drop down box to go to the next item.
Take the information you have and give it to the makers of SCP. Have them dump it in the system so it can show you what it can do and all of the information you can retrieve from it.

At first it was the affordability factor but upon inspection, this product is just as good as any high-end supply chain planning system in the market. The best part is the support provided by SCP. Our installation was complete and running in under 2 weeks.
I have been a user for almost 10 years and have no complaints.
Take the time to review and understand what SCP has to offer. It is very dynamic and flexible. Combined with the support provided, you have a great chance of improving your process almost overnight.
