“In a constantly changing world in which techniques are becoming ever more intricate and industries are growing and developing larger global networks, Bufab takes end-to-end responsibility to make sure that you have an efficient supply chain system. C-Parts might be a small part of your business. But they’re one that literally holds it together. And certainly one that can overturn production and cause huge problems when suppliers aren’t working as they should. Need to. Have to!”
Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) with C-Parts services is dependent on big business and large volumes. In order to be effective and cost-efficient, customer stock has to be replenished frequently and in bulk. Operations need to be built on trust and transparency – all stakeholders have to be able to work together to accurately determine forecasts for demand in the long and the short term. To run C-Part supply chain operations smoothly and just-in-time manner, we need to use state of the art technologies and solutions – this is where Bluugo and our Tracking Cloud™ platform comes in the picture.
Combining Tracking Cloud’s™ cutting-edge IoT-, RFID- & NFC-technologies and the modifiable, customer-grade interface, Bufab has launched a new cloud service called EasyTrack™. The service runs on the Tracking Cloud™ platform and connects to a variety of on-site solutions which gather data from different C-part processes to provide companies with a transparent, real-time overview of their racks, bins, refilling, orders, drawings and more.
The improved transparency over VMI processes creates a sturdy foundation for strong customer relationships while also improving efficiency. EasyTrack™ is used by both Bufab and their customers – the same service suits all users. The process of managing C-parts has never been smoother!
“Some of us enjoy the challenge. The potential glory. The moments of all or nothing. The hard work and improving of details to increase margins. But most of us just want things to be Easy.”

More and more companies are investing heavily in digitalization and new intelligent solutions but many fail to achieve the desired results. We believe that one of the root causes for the numerous failures is the wrong type of tools in use – you can’t build modern solutions with legacy tools and expect everything to run smoothly.
