Supply-Chain Management

Effective supply-chain management has a profound impact on market share and profitability.

The increasing complexity of today's supply chains, and the information environments that support them, make it difficult to monitor activities, control related risks, and streamline operations, all while meeting evolving customer demands. Access to complete, timely, and accurate supply-chain insight across multiple plants, warehouses, and distribution centers can help improve the supply-chain network from end to end, giving all stakeholders the ability to continuously track, measure, and make improvements.

Information Builders' business intelligence and analytics, integration, and data integrity solutions provide complete visibility into supply chain operations. Information from ERP applications, SCM systems, and other sources can be unified, cleansed, mastered, and harmonized, then made available as actionable insights to employees, customers, and supply chain partners.

With the WebFOCUS business intelligence (BI) and analytics platform, stakeholders have the real-time, comprehensive insight they need, from sourcing through customer delivery, to increase value and foster a culture of continual tracking, measurement, and improvement across the entire supply-chain network.
