As the necessity for end-to-end supply chain visibility gains momentum, One Network expands leadership position and client base of subscribers
DALLAS, December, 18 2013—Gartner, Inc, the leading provider of research and analysis on the global information technology industry, has listed One Network in a recent research report titled Use Cases for Supply Chain Visibility according to One Network Enterprises, provider of multi-enterprise Platform-as-a-Services (PaaS) and consumer-driven supply chain services in the cloud. One Network’s announcement comes soon after the news that GoPro, the top maker of action video cameras, has chosen One Network’s cloud platform, the Real Time Value Network, to provide global visibility across all of its supply chain (learn more about the GoPro and One Network project here).
According to Gartner, “End-to-end (E2E) supply chain visibility (SCV) is gaining interest in today’s global supply chains, because there is an increasing need for network collaboration to reduce business and partner risk, while maintaining efficiency and improving performance…. The potential for subsequent business improvement—integrating multiple parties and allowing them to view and share transactions, content, and status information—is enormous.” (Gartner, Inc. “Use Cases for Supply Chain Visibility”, by Christian Titze, Ray Barger Jr, 31 October 2013)
One Network’s cloud platform, the Real Time Value Network, is designed to maximize a company’s ability to see and respond to supply chain problems anywhere, anytime, no matter where they are located. One Network’s unique automatic decision-making technology enables companies to manage demand, supply, and logistics processes as a community of trading partners focused on satisfying the end-customer.
“The timing of Gartner’s report on supply chain visibility we feel further demonstrates why leading companies around the globe, including GoPro and other soon to be announced clients, are increasingly choosing One Network’s cloud platform”, Bruce Jacquemard, One Network’s EVP of Sales and Marketing.
In addition to enabling supply chain visibility, One Network clients use the Real Time Value Network to synchronize their planning and execution functions across their entire value chain while providing a “single version of the truth” to all their trading partners.
