Supply Chain Visibility

Supply Chain Visibility

End-to-end and actionable

End-to-end network visibility for flexibility and control

Supply Chain Visibility on the GT Nexus Commerce Network provides a real-time picture of where inventory is, when it will arrive, and how the supply chain is performing. Participants across multiple functions access a single platform that combines updates from supply chain partners with sensor data to provide visibility, from source to customer delivery.  Proactive alerts enable more options and faster collaboration to capture revenue opportunities, minimize supply chain risk, and reduce costs.

Highlights and core functionality

Manage inventory across your extended network, whether you own it or not. Get granular item and inventory visibility, including on-order with suppliers, in-transit, in a warehouse, or managed at a 3rd-party location. See future inventory projections based on current status and predictive ETAs. Analyze inventory by business unit, product, location, and whether its on-time, late, or has an exception.

Take multi-enterprise supply chain visibility to the next level with real-time IoT data.  Expand the quality, speed, and availability of shipment statuses beyond carrier EDI by filling blind spots and providing continuous visibility to goods in transit with a more predictable ETA. Monitor orders and shipments with real-time alerts to identify disruptions swiftly. Set up geofences to trigger alerts to manage downstream planning and execution processes or transfer inventory. Deliver better customer experiences with collaborative visibility.

Capture, calculate, and report actual landed cost information of globally-sourced goods and materials. Analyze and compare profitability across products and business units. Determine true costs of products, including material costs, transportation, and labor. Proactively compare expected costs to actuals across the supply chain, and quickly manage exceptions to ensure profitability.

Leveraging nearly 20 years of network data, machine learning algorithms model expected supply chain behavior, sense real-time events, and predict ETAs with unmatched accuracy. Know when goods will arrive at destination DCs for more accurate planning and execution, increasing velocity and reducing warehousing and inventory costs.  When ETAs vary from plans, alerts enable you to proactively respond to delays and disruptions.

Connect to your contract manufacturers and suppliers to provide visibility and collaboration to better align supply and demand. Confirm suppliers’ ability to execute by sharing, confirming, and collaborating on forecasts and orders and viewing production statuses. Knowing about potential issues and opportunities early in the supply chain lifecycle helps to ensure on-time delivery while minimizing unplanned expedites. 

Realize the full potential of your supply chain data with views that provide in-context analytics and insights so you can consume and act on information quickly. Focus on opportunities and risks, collaborate with the right parties, and drill into transactions to swiftly execute decisions. Customizable role-based dashboards deliver the right information to proactively manage the supply chain and improve productivity.

Customer stories

CAT

CAT

With a strong culture of continuous improvement, CAT quickly recognized the power of visibility to increase velocity and reduce variability. It has saved millions in inventory and transportation spend, and continues to increase value through GT Nexus Commerce Network. “We had to get visibility. You can’t make network decisions if you don’t have it.”

Tom France
Director Transportation and Supply Chain Solutions

Syngenta

Syngenta

For Syngenta, "bringing plant power to life" requires end-to-end supply chain visibility. To address its complex supply chain, Syngenta established the GT Nexus Commerce network as the single visibility platform for its diverse set of crops and food products.  Syngenta's new digital supply chain increases efficiency and enables multiple operating models across logistics providers.

Hewlett-Packard

Hewlett-Packard

HP built on their early success with Transportation Sourcing and quickly expanded into Supply Chain Visibility. The GT Nexus Commerce Network's modern cloud infrastructure supports supply chain flexibility and innovation.

Electrolux

Electrolux

“We were lacking a lot of integration between factories and that was causing a very complex supply chain that needed to be transformed… We chose GT Nexus essentially because it has become the gold standard for supply chain software.”
