How Data-Driven Insights Revolutionize the Supply Chain

Powerful business intelligence (BI), analytics, and data management solutions from Information Builders improve core logistics and transportation operations. Full coordination, collaboration, and visibility into critical activities reduces expenses, while optimizing performance and service.

Organizations can make high-quality, timely data from any combination of sources readily accessible to employees, business partners, and customers. These valuable insights enhance important activities across the entire business – from delivery scheduling and routing to cargo management and capacity planning.

Additionally, our B2B technologies streamline and accelerate mission-critical workflows by automating key order and fulfillment processes.

Transportation and Logistics

Communicate With Customers and Partners

Ensure On-Time Delivery, Track Shipments, Share Activity Status, and More

Our software solutions help you increase the efficiency of your logistics and transportation operations by tapping into enterprise data to better communicate and collaborate with all stakeholders.

For example:

  • Customers can track shipments in progress to ensure on-time delivery
  • Distributors, warehouse staff, and other supply-chain partners can see the status of activities performed by other partners within the network
  • Shippers, carriers, customers, and other trading partners can closely monitor the status of ordering, fulfillment, and other aspects of cargo or supply-chain management in real time

Information Builders' solutions exploit the massive volumes of data generated during the course of logistics and transportation transactions.

This enhanced collaboration and information sharing promotes better partner performance and ensures the efficient movement of products from end to end.

Furthermore, we can help you automate critical processes – such as order entry or notification of arrival – to improve accuracy and eliminate cumbersome and error-prone manual work.

Supply-Chain Management

Identify and Avoid Bottlenecks, Disruptions, and Problems to Ensure On-Time Performance

When companies can monitor and control crucial activities across increasingly complex global supply-chain networks, they can proactively identify and avoid potential bottlenecks, disruptions, and problems – which is essential to ensuring on-time performance.

Information Builders solutions provide unparalleled visibility into ordering, shipping, fulfillment, and other critical supply-chain operations.

Shipments can be tracked in real time – from the point of origin until they are delivered, across multiple facilities and modes of transport.

Delivery windows will tighten, profitability will increase, and customer satisfaction will improve, with vital insights that can help to:

  • Mitigate risk
  • Increase efficiency
  • Uncover hidden costs and waste
  • Identify potential issues and their root causes
