Tracking expediting milestones
Expediters can enter dates and other related data for the completion of expediting milestone events as they’re completed. 4castplus will auto-fill certain fields such as the arrival-at-site date when there is a logical connection to project events.
Logging vendor communications
4castplus expediting software provides a built-in tool to capture emails, phone calls and other correspondence with all your vendors. This is key for documenting a historical record for transparency during the expediting process.
Expediting matters because timing is everything
In procurement management, the expeditor is the person who ensures suppliers deliver critical materials or equipment to the jobsite on time and in good order. They keep close tabs on the statuses of every key event leading up to the successful delivery of long-lead items. He or she spends hours communicating with vendors, and they feed delivery forecast details to the project manager and schedulers to ensure accurate timing of crews and installers. To accomplish all this, they need an expediting software solution that makes it easy and organized so that they can help avoid delays and other issues like, quality, damages, overages, etc.
