Pioneer Video Manufacturing Inc. (PVM), suppliers of digital video discs (DVD) and laser discs to large movie studios and video entertainment companies, have implemented SynQuest supply chain software along with J.D. Edwards ERP software to improve its delivery process.

PVM claim the software has improved the visibility of their production process allowing the company to accurately predict delivery times for customers and to create `what if’ scenarios to assess the impact of new orders on production schedules. Orders flow automatically from the ERP system into the SynQuest software, which optimises the orders based on weighted criteria such as minimising cost or maximising throughput, revenue or on time delivery.
