Overview

Supply Chain Visibility and Integration solutions are key investment decisions auto companies are making as the foundation for avoiding or mitigating supply chain risks such as late deliveries, chargebacks, supplier failures, and more. The challenge for many companies is to get a truly global end-to-end view of both inventory and supply chain transactional activity.

How it works

By aligning operational and strategic value chain objectives and balancing supply chain trade-offs you can consistently meet customer serviceability requirements, optimize working capital, and reduce distribution network costs. This solution helps you:

  • Enable short-term reactions to supply chain disruption to manage risk better
  • Increase revenue of after-sale business by ensuring availability of right parts, at right time, at right location

How you benefit
