- Supply chain planning:
For goods to flow easily in a supply chain, the data exchange must run smoothly. The Visibility & Collaboration Platform ensures transparency and helps synchronize events along the supply chain with extra features to enhance collaboration. The platform architecture allows a centralized approach –worldwide. And provides the foundation for efficient controlling.
Many companies already have end-to-end visibility over their own internal production processes. But this transparency is often quickly lost as soon as outside business partners are involved. And when this transparency is lost, the ability to act is often lost with it. Information is decentralized and communication channels are fragmented. ASSIST4 builds a new foundation here with the Visibility & Collaboration Platform.
The ASSIST4 Visibility & Collaboration Platform serves as the nerve center, collecting all the relevant information from all supply chain partners. Standard adapters and methods let you quickly, easily, and affordably integrate suppliers and logistics service providers into your processes, systems, and information flows. This consolidated information can then be used in various scenarios. Your customers can check the status of their own orders, for example. Transport service providers can check delivery time slots or reprint misplaced papers on their own.
ASSIST4 harnesses all this information to give you a consistently clear, real-time view of all your inventory, goods movements, and the status chains of your process steps. Above all, it enables the change from reactive troubleshooting to proactive event management.
Finally, once all the planning data is in ASSIST4 (see Order Management) and all the event and status information is bundled here, the Visibility & Collaboration Platform is the ideal place to measure the performance and reliability of your supply chain. Supply chain managers have access here to analyses, ad hoc reports, alerts, and dashboards. The clincher: because ASSIST4 also automates and standardizes the supply chain execution in your company, you have the option of incorporating all internal processes into the performance test.
