KCSI – Custom Software That’s Right for YOU


Companies encounter bottlenecks in different ways as part of their process. Project Management is taking up too much time and is spread out over too many systems. Paper Processing and Data Entry command far too much time from your work day, and focus is pulled from higher level work.

When you employ off-the-shelf solutions, you may not get the processes you need in the areas you actually need them most. What results from that is the addition of more software to handle the bits the first package cannot do, and that means more costs before you are even close to being efficient, let alone before you can take your business to the top.

Ultimately, using an out-of-the-box software solution is like trying to fit a slot head screwdriver into a Phillips screw. Ready-made software just doesn’t handle the nuances of your business the way that you need. It’s designed to appeal to the mass market and to work for the average business – but your company’s needs are not average, they are very particular and specific, and you need your business software to work from the first moment it is installed.

Custom applications are produced to accommodate the needs of your specific business, your team, and your customers.

Custom built solutions enable you to close the holes in your workflow and bypass them without wasting time and money on software that does not answer a single challenge that you have.

For the software solution you need, contact KCSI for a conversation that can help put your business in the lead. Email here with your needs, and let us help you get started with the custom package to satisfy them.

Lot Tracking with SIMMS 2018


The ability to track component lots from raw material to finished product shipped to customers is a key requirement for many companies. SIMMS 2018 Inventory Management Software provides this functionality for either stocked parts. Upon receipt of lots from a vendor or from manufacturing, lot traceability provides where-used and lots-used visibility. An optional feature is the ability to designate a group of attributes that can be collected and tracked for each lot. These attributes follow the lot for the history of the lot record in the system, providing for historical quality references even after shipment.

The ability to track serialized and lot-related parts to a customer is important for warranty and service management. SIMMS 2018 provides the ability to create serial numbers and manufacturer lots at any time during manufacturing. Finished products are assigned serial numbers and/or manufacturing lots and when shipped to the customer, the serial numbers and manufacturing lots used are saved to history, providing their traceability against the original customer order.

The Steps Toward Your Custom Package


Custom software conception, design, testing and implementation usually involves at least six common steps in its reality:

 1. String and Bailing Wire

Where the initial design meets the actual user interface. Testing shows things that need to be tweaked.

2. Bug Reports and Fixes

You repair major leaks. More string is added to the code.

3. The Working Version

Here is where you learn what it needs to be feature-rich and consistent.

4. Visiting Dead-Ends

You fix and add new features. Performance improves. Single features are focused on and success is tracked. Synchronization occurs.

5. The Swimming Pool Test

Architecture that supports function is streamlined. Features get default settings and they are tested while turned on as well as when turned off. It stays afloat.

6. The Camel Runs Like a Horse

The package grows and changes as new ideas are requested and implemented.

While the above list may seem confusing, they are standard steps that evolve from first to last as the software solution finds its footing in the world and begins to provide all of the customer’s needs from its design.

Analytics with SIMMS 2018


Your company exists in a huge sea of competition. Industry comparisons take metrics, such as your turnover rate or cycle time, and compare them with other businesses in your industry. Determining how your metrics compare to your competitors’ gives you a way to judge whether your inventory control meets the industry norm, falls short or surpasses it.

The Item Fill Rate is the percentage of items a customer ordered that your company was able to ship. The lower the ratio, the poorer your inventory performance. You should track not only the fill rate for each individual order but the fill rate for all orders – what percentage of orders go out completely filled, and what percentage have items missing.

The Lost Sales metric indicated the number of your potential customers that ask for an item and then go elsewhere because you do not stock it. Companies that use this metric usually track back orders – reserving part of the next scheduled shipment for the customer to purchase – as well as lost sales. Using both metrics will give you an idea of the gap between your inventory and your customers’ needs.

Several metrical considerations are of paramount importance to how well your stock management is handled. Your best system should take into consideration a wide array of avenues for improvement, considering the best metrics in a variety of areas.

Along with accurate stock counts, inventory turnover tracking and accurate cycle times the above metrics will help you gain control of your comprehensive inventory management. SIMMS Inventory Management software provides all the tools that you will need to hold the lead over your competitors. Visit or email today to find out how.
