eBook Showcases How Companies Enable Next-Gen Collaboration Capabilities
Wayne, PA – August 20, 2015 – Elemica, the leading Supply Chain Operating Network provider for the process industries, discusses “The Power of the Network” in their newly published flipbook. Supply Chain Networks are growing significantly as businesses realize substantial benefits through their collective participation, enabling companies to more efficiently and effectively conduct business with each other. A network thrives when key pieces of commerce come together, in a particular place, so that the strengthened interactions across companies deliver prosperity and economic growth for all participants. The new flipbook titled, “The Power of the Network,” is available for download from Elemica’s website and provides more details.
“Supply chain operating networks offer a level of sophistication missing in EDI and B2B hubs,” said Arun Samuga, VP of Research & Development at Elemica. “As business networks grow, just like with social networks, the value to participants explodes. The more opportunities a company has to conduct commerce with others – whether it is searching for new suppliers or prospective customers or trying to find a new carrier to ship a load – the greater the return.”
The “Power of the Network” flipbook discusses in depth the following:
- How interoperability across different networks enables communication and collaboration.
- Why a federation of networks, leveraging each network’s respective breadth, depth, number and quality of trading partners, will deliver end-to-end visibility in one place.
- What proactive management of exceptions and processes will mean during times of supply disruption or spikes in demand.
“Like a LinkedIn or Facebook, a supply chain operating network enables easy discovery and connectivity through to new trading partners,” added Arun Samuga. “If you need a new supplier, for example, you can search the network by equipment type, geographic reach, certifications, or even question other participants on the network for recommendations.”
