Global Connectivity for B2B Made Easy

Challenge: Following a period of tremendous growth, our client made the decision to shift to an outsourced manufacturing model. But with hundreds of trading partners around the globe-each with unique systems and protocols-our client was unable to manage the growing number of external operations, or to keep pace with increasingly volatile demand signals.

Solution: To meet these challenges, E2open deployed a multi-enterprise B2B hub capable of electronic connectivity and reliable file transport. Following a short period of internal integration and message validation, E2open began the onboarding process-reducing our client's onboarding time from months to days. To date, E2open has onboarded more than 120 of our client's most strategic partners-with support for 40+ message types and 10+ protocols.

Results: The results have included: 60% reduction in cycle time; 88% productivity gains for our client's partners; and 30% savings per order on 40% of all product bookings through B2B.

About the Solution Provider: E2open is a leading provider of cloud-based supply chain management solutions. The company provides software and services that enable visibility, collaboration, and control across large trading partner networks. Global manufacturers use E2open's B2B integration services and business process management solutions for more profitable alignment of demand, supply, and products.
