Purchase order management


Technology is an integral component in effective supply chain management and our web-based system – PowerView – is an incredibly powerful tool, which provides retailers with complete visibility and control of their global supply chain.

What makes PowerView truly unique, however, is not just its high tech architecture, but the ability of our account management team to mould it into the solution that meets each retailer’s unique set of needs.
