Challenge: This high tech company was acquired and entered a period of rapid growth through a series of additional acquisitions. Behind the scenes, this company's supply chain had to keep pace with this growth - a tall order in a time of change.
Solution: Using the GT Nexus supply chain visibility tool, this company unified its shipment information into one system. This allowed the company to create an "early warning dashboard" that includes a snapshot of all goods in transit, delivery times, and detailed information about each shipment for compliance purposes.
Results: This high tech company's supply chain officials can know within two minutes of logging into GT Nexus where they need to focus their efforts. For example, when port delays crippled many shippers' supply chains in late 2014, this company was able to use their visibility into their supply chain to anticipate delays. That Christmas, this company was able to completely meet demand, unlike other retailers that suffered from stock-outs.
About the Solution Provider: GT Nexus provides the cloud-based collaboration platform that leaders in nearly every sector rely on to automate hundreds of supply chain processes on a global scale, across entire trade communities.
