The GLOVIA G2 Supplier Releasing MRP software module provides for the management and optimization of purchasing contracts with suppliers. A very rich and deep set of functionality allows for the control of releases, advanced logistics and accounting controls.

System Flexibility

The Supplier Releasing MRP system provides flexible options for entering into contracts with suppliers and managing supplier releases.

Contract Options

Contract periods can be for the current model year or multiple model years and can be changed or extended as renegotiations occur. The MRP system also permits changes in contract prices, quantities and delivery dates.

Open Account Options

Shipping Container Management

Disposable and reusable containers can be associated with items and managed as part of the release process. GLOVIA G2 tracks the quantity of reusable containers leaving and returning to the facility by container type.
