What is it?
More and more, people are now beginning to grasp the potential benefits of putting their supply chain in the “cloud”. The cloud label is broad and loosely defined. Not all cloud supply chain management solutions are created equally, nor are they architected the same way. The Real Time Value Network is unique relative to other supply chain solutions in that it is a many-to-many network. What exactly is a many-to-many network?
In a many-to-many network, a company connects just once to the network and has the ability to transact, coordinate, and plan with any other company already on the network. The question then becomes whether any two given companies want to transact, and if so, what information they decide to share and what integrated workflows they want to share. This is very similar to what is happening within the popular social networks of today; you have hundreds of millions of potential “connections”, but first both parties need to agree to connect and decide what information they want to share.
The Real Time Value Network is the only company with a full suite of supply chain planning and execution systems that have been architected as a many-to-many network, and organizations that have connected to it have experienced dramatic results, such as nearly completely eliminating stock outs, dramatically reducing inventories, and being able to respond to supply/demand events in real time.
