E2open has partnered with leading high-tech companies to help them meet the market pressures that they face today, while positioning them for long-term flexibility and scalability.

 

 

 

E2open has a complete range of solutions to address the key supply chain challenges high tech manufacturers face.

The high tech industry, including consumer electronics, enterprise computing and networking, electronics components, and cloud-computing providers, has been at the forefront of supply chain innovations for several decades. Before any other industry, it relied on a global network of suppliers, contract manufacturers, logistics providers, and other partners to design, assemble, ship, sell, and repair its products. It was one of the first industries to leverage e-commerce. And, for both the consumer and business markets, constant product innovation remains the driving factor in maintaining competitiveness.

E2open was founded in 2000 by a consortium of high tech giants as an industry trading exchange. With its roots in the high-tech industry, E2open has a complete range of solutions to address the key supply chain challenges high tech manufacturers face.

Many leading high tech manufacturers are leveraging the E2open network and supply chain solutions to operate their multi-enterprise supply chains in real-time, helping them become more agile and efficient.
