Gain greater levels of visibility and control despite expanding business complexities and shrinking timelines. E2open Manufacturing Collaboration provides complete visibility into end-to-end manufacturing processes and costs at all stages of production to improve operational efficiency, collaborate on product design, and reduce invoicing inaccuracies. As blind spots disappear, profitability increases.

True end-to-end visibility and collaboration for global manufacturing processes

The use of contract manufacturers increases complexities

Financial benefits of outsourcing diminish due to poor visibility and collaboration

Sourcing globally and leveraging contract manufacturers can lower manufacturing costs but simultaneously have the opposite effect. Manufacturing complexities, mergers and acquisitions, communication disconnects, inaccurate service-based invoices, and quality and inventory management issues are just some of the challenges that can negate financial benefits. Without the ability to collaborate across tiers, expand, integrate systems and partners, and launch new products while meeting quality, compliance, and traceability requirements, profitability is watered down. Even the best efforts fail to realize a company’s vision.
