More and more, companies rely on a global network of suppliers, contract manufacturers, logistics providers and other partners to design, assemble, ship, sell and repair their products.
Problem: Although enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems give companies an up-to-date view of their own business, there’s no visibility outside a company’s four walls. Traditional approaches to external business-to-business (B2B) connectivity are usually point-to-point connections. Expensive and time-consuming to deploy, they provide mostly single-tier visibility with limited traceability support.
Solution: Use a more modern approach. E2net is a cloud-based network that connects all trading partners, enabling companies to exchange information and work collaboratively and securely in real time. Electronic connectivity provides timely and accurate information from external sources, lower transaction costs and high scalability.
