Supply chain visibility is the ability of stakeholders to access real-time data related to the order process, inventory management, delivery times and potential supply chain disruptions.
Lack of B2B transaction and inventory visibility is a significant challenge that could affect customer satisfaction. But with real-time insights from EDI data, which IBM AI helps correlate across disparate systems, business users can make faster transaction queries to speed resolution of shipment and order issues. Real-time intelligence, forecasting and actionable recommendations provided by embedded AI capabilities have already helped IBM clients reduce disruption mitigation time from days to hours. And new, data-driven insights can uncover optimization opportunities to increase efficiencies and reduce costs. IBM supply chain visibility solutions can also help you securely extend shared, real-time visibility to supply chain trading partners, service providers, distributors, suppliers and customers — while enabling traceability and ensuring authenticity — with blockchain.
