What is supply chain visibility?

Supply chain visibility is the ability of all stakeholders throughout the supply chain to access real-time data related to the order process, inventory, delivery and potential supply chain disruptions. The advanced insights improve customer service, reduce costs, help with regulatory directives, and mitigate interruptions that could affect supplier inventory levels and product delivery.

Predict, prioritize and mitigate disruptions and risks
