A company’s physical supply chain and sales channel consists of the complex global, multi-partner network of suppliers, subcontractors, factories, warehouses, third party logistics (3PL) providers, distributors, retailers and resellers that has built up over time. Goods flow from supply to consumer, with critical information housed in disparate transactional, financial, sales and executional systems. Some companies still run their physical supply chain with spreadsheets using manual processes.
Multi-enterprise connectivity through E2open automates the collection of data across any or all parts of the supply chain and sales channel. E2open’s digital twin creates a digital abstraction of the end-to-end physical supply chain and sales channel and continuously updates it with information from underlying systems. A transparent view of the truth lets companies collaborate instantly, balancing supply and demand in real time without manual effort.
