Supply chain integration means that all internal stakeholders and trading partners of the supply chains are connected. This way they can share information in real-time to work towards a common goal and commit to continuous supply chain management improvement to boost supply chain efficiency.
Integrating the entire B2B supply chain is a challenging task: it requires an unbeatable supply chain integration strategy and the right integration tool and experts. Our iPaaS has been designed to support your integration strategy and tackle even the most complex integration challenges. All solutions are developed and managed by our integration architects so you can focus on your business.
Realizing the importance of the supply chain integration process is the first step to supply chain optimization.
While there are numerous supply chain optimization tools available, data integrations are too often overlooked. Just by making supply chain data accessible to all stakeholders, companies can emphasize supply chain optimization.
Supply chain optimization is just one of the many benefits of supply chain integration. Nevertheless, it is perhaps the most important one.
Supply chain integration will help you to easily connect with all your stakeholders whether they use legacy systems or cloud applications. Connectivity is the first step to breaking down data silos and sharing data in real-time. The available supply chain data will be useful for supply chain analytics and insights to help you improve supply chain efficiency and optimization. Modern data integration solutions also facilitate supply chain process automation for further development.
An iPaaS is also an ideal tool for managing and modernizing EDI in your supply chain. Using an integration platform for EDI will help you to ease the pain of all the different data formats you and your trading partners use, such as EDIFACT, ANSI X12, XML, JSON, and in-house proprietary data formats.
