BT announced new cloud-based capabilities for BT Trace, its portfolio of supply chain solutions designed to help organisations overcome the challenges of managing increasingly complex global supply chains.
BT Trace now includes a cloud-based solution that will provide a single, accurate view into complex supply chains in near real time, to see how and where changes need to be made and enable customers to improve operational efficiency.
Companies with a global supply chain deal with multiple issues, from counterfeiting and shrinkage to product recalls and perishable goods. This is typical for global companies active in industry sectors such as consumer packaged goods, logistics, manufacturing, pharma or retail for example. They need an accurate understanding of all inventory and on-shelf availability, all the while trying to comply with regulations and operate a sustainable business.
Supply chain visibility is a challenge for those companies because of the multiplicity of formats, sources and partners that collect data. All too often, their various resource planning and backend systems are not even connected. BT Trace helps companies respond to those critical challenges.
