E2open’s multi-enterprise software for supply processes allows enterprises to better manage their supply and manufacturing/assembly operations.
The Supply Management solutions provide visibility, control, and collaborative capabilities across all buy-side processes, enabling companies to anticipate and respond to shifting market requirements and align operations across global supply networks. Supply Management is designed to integrate and automate key supply chain processes from planning to execution – successfully transforming supply chain operations into a competitive advantage.
The Supply Management process typically starts with sharing forecasts and commitments. Over time, these get adjusted as new information is available. Eventually these become actual orders that need to be managed and tracked throughout their lifecycle. Inventories, with their role as supply chain buffers, also need to be managed. The challenge is that these activities require working closely with multiple parties: not only with their own factories but also with all the other supply chain partners involved, such as suppliers, subcontractors, co-packers, logistics providers, etc. Supporting these supply chain activities in a multi-enterprise set-up is at the core of E2open’s capabilities. Leveraging the E2open network that connects all the trading partners, E2open provides a complete suite of supply management solutions.
E2open’s customers are leveraging the E2open supply management solutions to intelligently manage the supply side of their supply chain. These solutions build upon the E2open network to provide the required visibility and collaboration across all the suppliers, contract manufacturers, 3PLs, etc. in a multi-enterprise supply chain.
