Transparency to Capture Improved Performance

The retail and wholesale industries have never been more fragmented – or fractured – than they are today. From discount warehouse clubs to upscale specialty stores, corner convenience chains to mega e-commerce sites, buyers are better informed, less loyal, and highly cautious about discretionary spending. Organizations are striving to balance product, price and service sensitivities, while protecting margins; to ensure inventory availability while maintaining reduced carrying costs; and to deliver favorable omni-channel experiences, while streamlining daily operations at all levels of the enterprise. Now more than ever information must be leveraged in new ways to gain competitive advantage and renew stability in these uncertain times.

Transportation and Logistics

Visibility Leads to More Responsive and Agile Operations

While the developing global economy offers enormous growth potential for the freight and logistics industry players, it also brings more intricate supply chains, higher costs and tighter regulatory demands. For these organizations to achieve maximum profitability collaboration with a number of trading partners in various parts of the world, ranging from suppliers, carriers, and government agencies must be enabled.

The cornerstone of agile operations requires visibility-both of inventories in transit, as well as any market events which will impact on-time delivery. When this information is visible inside and outside the enterprise, unexpected events can be rapidly assessed and risk mitigation plans can be quickly developed and implemented. Increasing the visibility of two-way information and enabling collaboration between suppliers and carriers enables companies to achieve service goals across the logistics and transportation network in spite of market events that are impossible to control.
