E2open recently announced that all clients can add In-Transit Visibility to their current subscription for no additional cost. E2open's global clients can now locate their shipments across all modes at no incremental cost. Visibility For All natively integrates to all E2open applications, allowing each to drive additional value for clients.
"Having to pay for something that is already yours just doesn't make sense," said Michael Farlekas, president and chief executive officer of E2open. "What's more, current solutions are costly. We believe this status quo is upside down, so we are changing the rules. By making real-time location visibility and data for goods-in-transit available to our clients as part of their current subscription, irrespective of the E2open module clients use, we fundamentally change the economics for widespread adoption. We believe the use of this data to make more valuable supply chain decisions and this approach allows clients to reinvest funds currently spent on third party tools for higher-value activities. Fewer solutions, less cost, more value!”
E2open's Visibility For All program democratizes the "see" aspect of end-to-end supply chain management by making visibility to all modes of transportation, across all regions of the globe, for all legs of a shipment, across all carriers available free of charge for all E2open clients as part of their current subscription. Real-time visibility to goods in motion provides immediate value for clients, with better management of logistics transactions containing complex and time-sensitive dependencies such as cargo handoffs between carriers for multi-leg and multi-modal shipments.
"Global shippers can't manage what they can't see. This new program levels the playing field by making real-time visibility of goods in motion standard issue for all clients," said Pawan Joshi, executive vice president of product management and strategy of E2open. "In-transit visibility is a basic building block for modern, end-to-end supply chain performance. Real-time tracking of shipments provides foundational data required to power advanced applications that help clients understand the impact of arrival time delays. More importantly, clients can understand the actual business impact of delays and proactively take corrective actions to dramatically reduce the reliance on costly last-minute expedites and re-routes. We believe this capability should be a part of regular supply chain operations and decision making, not a separate siloed and overlaid application. The purpose of E2open's Visibility For All program is to accelerate higher value for all our clients.”
Once implemented, E2open platform users can immediately start tracking shipments and ETAs by providing standard transport data or any additional cross-reference to the E2open platform. When used in conjunction with E2open intelligent applications for planning or execution, the platform automatically manages all relevant cross-references.
