HighJump Pulse is a supply chain intelligence solution aimed at increasing the availability and visibility of a business' key performance indicators. Unlike other tools on the market, HighJump Pulse provides out-of-the-box best practice KPIs for the supply chain, along with the extensibility to build other KPIs specific to a business.
HighJump Pulse integrates data from across an enterprise, including warehouse operations, to provide customers with self-service reporting and analysis. The flexibility of the solution allows users to start analysing data immediately with the freedom to adapt the solution as a company grows and changes. Customers will leverage modern graphical dashboard technology with industry-developed standards to produce actionable, visual data. HighJump Pulse integrates with the HighJump Supply Chain Advantage suite or any supply chain management application to provide a comprehensive, consolidated view of a company's supply chain performance.
With HighJump Pulse, companies track KPIs derived from metrics prescribed by leading supply chain experts, such as the Warehouse Education and Research Center (WERC). HighJump Pulse utilizes the latest tools in Microsoft's Business Intelligence toolkit to deliver meaningful information, including:
- Tactical intelligence: Real-time views of key operational metrics
