BridgePoint Gives Better Visibility to 3rdwave Users

Blinco Systems Inc., developer of the 3rdwave Global Commerce Management (GCM) and sourcing solutions, has launched an electronic carrier transaction-based subscription messaging service for its clients. Using Management Dynamics' BridgePoint supply chain visibility and performance management solution, Blinco Systems provides 3rdwave clients with complete visibility, event management and logistics analytics to all their global shipments.
With XML feeds from ocean, air, rail, truck carriers, and trading partners, BridgePoint delivers messages to the 3rdwave GCM data repository. 3rdwave normalizes, analyzes and validates the information, which allows the 3rdwave logistics module to show upstream and downstream impact on product availability across a company's entire supply chain.
David Blinick, president and CEO of Blinco Systems, says, "3rdwave GCM has taken global tracking and global logistics' visibility to the next generation. Now, company management can completely oversee the entire global supply chain. With fully-integrated, synchronized and automated carrier messaging, supported by dynamic workflows, our clients can give the status and immediate impact of product as it moves to all intra- and inter-company users and global supply chain partners. By seeing what is or may be deviating from plan in real time and the future impact on inventory availability, our clients can more effectively manage their global supply chains, better control and turn their inventory, notably improve service to their customers, and improve their cash and financial management."
