VISCO Software for Importers is a financial projection tool as much
as it is an inventory management tool. This is one of the only
systems that will calculate your net profit on an order as soon
as it is entered. The system comes standard with accrual based
costing for product and duty costs for each shipment (Venture).
Hence, these costs reflect the total landed cost for that shipment.
All sales associated with a shipment are also
reflected on the Venture. This enables the financial manager to
assess gross profit for each Venture at a glance.
"What he did know was the exact quantities of specific chemicals the company was holding in the warehouse, plus the contents of the just-arrived container."

As Importers know, the tracking required to move
their good from one end of the supply chain to another, can be terrifically
extensive and complicated. But can your supply chain managers imagine
the time this package affords them if they can identify a certain
individual container at its exact location at any given moment?
This software tracks each and every product
at its most basic level from when it leaves the vendor's warehouse
until it arrives at the specified location of the end customer.
When a customer calls and asks when they can expect their imported
good, the system is only limited in delivering a precise response
by the timetable commitment of your shipping company.
The system also tracks every cost associated with the supply chain.
Therefore, if your SCM or Logistics Manager needs instant information
about costing or is interested in restructuring a part of their cost
structure, the system can and will easily point out the areas where
costs can be reduced.
