DALLAS, TX – May 31, 2012 — One Network Enterprises (“ONE”), the leading provider of demand driven supply chain solutions in the cloud, introduced today the Real Time Value Network™ (RTVN™). More than 30,000 companies are already connected to ONE for existing Demand Driven services such as Intelligent Demand, Intelligent Supply, and Intelligent Logistics, which have repeatedly proven to lower inventories and operational costs, improve service, and increase profitability. The RTVN packages new robust integration tools and a suite of best practice templates.
The RTVN makes it easier than ever for enterprises to connect to their trading partners and access all of ONE’s services. It includes ONE’s Intelligent Vendor Access Network, an EDI gateway and powerful tool set for easy integration with ERP, execution systems, and other cloud services. The RTVN synchronizes the data across the network and promotes consistency between trading partners with a single version of the truth that incorporates real time data. Companies need connect to the RTVN only once to collaborate with all their partners worldwide across multiple echelons and enterprises and enjoy access to all of ONE’s services.
Once connected to the RTVN, companies may choose from a full suite of pre-packaged best practice templates, called Network Optimized Workflows (NOWs), which allow for rapid time to value. NOWs include parcel management, lead logistics provider management, “make-to stock” and “make-to-order” solutions, a retail template including a demand sensing network data repository, and a spare parts management system, with many more to follow.
“One Network has spent the past ten years deploying powerful and patented cloud-based network services”, said ONE’s CEO Greg Brady, “the RTVN is the only global network available today that delivers complete network optimization, integration, and orchestration across multi-tier client and partner companies’ ERP and other execution systems in real time.”
RTVN at a Glance
Real Time Network
The RTVN is an extremely responsive supply network that virtually eliminates informational lead times and minimizes physical lead times. One Network’s cloud-based RTVN precisely models and connects you to your own unique value chain, whether in whole—for example every node from retailers to raw material suppliers—or in part, for example your logistics and transportation network. One Network lets your value chain become as real time as you want it to be.
One Network’s patented tools and technologies do more than provide visibility, they optimize. In the RTVN, supply, demand, and capacities are planned and executed concurrently within the same system based on the most recent available demand data, as well as highly accurate forecasts. Short-term forecasts (for example, depending on the industry, the next 10 days) can be based on store level inventories and daily sales scan data. The supply chain problems left unsolved by ERP are multi-party in nature, and the solution is a multi-party network with integrated planning and execution capabilities.
Today’s decision support tools and processes cannot scale to allow users to be involved in planning millions of item and location combinations. There is far too much information and the decisions required are much too granular for human planners to be effective. For this reason, the RTVN was designed to be fully scalable across technology and business processes.
The RTVN relies on horizontal grid processing, giving it the ability to manage the millions of daily transactions and data points that today’s large value chains generate. One Network recognizes that the majority of these transactions are routine and don’t require human intervention, and the RTVN allows people to devote their resources to the complicated one-off problems that only humans can solve, using human intelligence to address the exceptions.
Network Coordination and Connectivity
The RTVN coordinates and orchestrates all internal functions and the activities of external trading partners, giving your value chain a “single version of the truth”, but securely packaging and filtering it in a way that makes it relevant to their individual roles. A single information “pipe” into the network provides integration across multiple companies’ ERP and execution systems. One Network takes this multi-enterprise data and continuously syncs and re-syncs demand, supply, and capacities in near real time across all trading partners.
Diverse clients from every sector — Imperial Logistics, the US Department of Defense, Del Monte Foods, the US Marine Corps and many others — are becoming demand driven with One Network. Find out why more than 30,000 other companies are connected to the RTVN and call us today.
