The importance of visibility within the supply chain
The Supply Chain covers all the stages of a product from its creation to delivery to the end customer. It brings together several professionals who work together. Among them we can name: producers, suppliers, factories, distributors, customers and logistics providers.
Supply Chain can therefore be a long and complex process that requires good logistics management.
It is therefore important to disseminate information to all its partners in order to have a transverse, precise and dynamic vision of all the components acting on the performance of the supply chain in order to keep its commercial promise to the end customer.
Beyond this commercial promise, visibility allows for operational and economic efficiency.
From standard to predictive visibility
- Standard visibility.
With standard visibility, the data for each transport is shared manually.
Asset information is transmitted at regular intervals but only at certain times of the day.
Information takes time to arrive and if a hazard has occurred, it is often too late to remedy it.
As the information is often available far too late, it is often unreliable.
- Real-time visibility.
Real-time visibility allows information to be shared with all supply chain stakeholders.
This real-time data allows for better optimisation of operations, performance analysis and increased customer satisfaction.
- Predictive visibility.
Predictive visibility allows you to collect information from all data sources to quickly and accurately anticipate problems so you can effectively manage hazards to mitigate their impact.
With predictive visibility it is possible to know the real time position of your assets, delivery times, estimated time of arrival (ETA) and alerts.
Everysens offers a predictive and collaborative visibility platform to plan and monitor all supply chain flows in real time.
