RedTail Solutions, which provides electronic trading solutions for EDI and data synchronization, says it will expand the retail data available to customers using its pilot RedTail Supply Chain Visibility Portal by utilizing data from the VeriSign Intelligent Supply Chain Services platform.
Data from VeriSign will provide information about the order and fulfillment lifecycle of products moving through the supply chain. RedTail, Westborough, Mass., also plans to use VeriSign services to develop new offerings that utilize EDI and GDS data with point-of-sale data and RFID product movement data to deliver end-to-end visibility of products within the supply chain.
"Utilizing VeriSign Intelligent Supply Chain Services enables RedTail to offer our customers an end-to-end solution that marries EDI, GDS, RFID and POS data into a comprehensive operational dashboard view that provides measurable value to suppliers," says David Unger, CTO of RedTail Solutions. "Product information captured by RFID needs to be viewed in context of the entire order lifecycle and the underlying business processes between suppliers and buyers. Timely and accurate data from the VeriSign platform will allow the RedTail Supply Chain Visibility Portal to do just that."
VeriSign Intelligent Supply Chain Services provide secure, scalable infrastructure services for critical supply chain data--including POS and RFID.
"Companies in the retail industry are increasingly looking to collapse multiple types of data into a single view of supply and demand," says Jeff Richards, vice president, Intelligent Supply Chain Services, VeriSign. "Our alliance with RedTail Solutions is representative of our ongoing efforts with leading application providers to help enable a comprehensive, actionable, global demand signal to supply chain participants."
