One Network Pioneers Multi-Party Networks
Back in 2002, Greg Brady, a supply chain visionary and Ranjit Notani a pioneer in multi-enterprise collaboration technology came to the conclusion that the traditional paradigm of business-to-business collaboration built around enterprise-centric software was fundamentally flawed. Businesses must take an outside-in network view and together serve the end consumer.
In May 2003, they acquired Elogex, a cloud-based logistics software company, and founded One Network Enterprises with a vision to create consumer-driven business networks. They developed a network platform that enabled entire business communities to collaborate and work together to serve the consumer. Brady and Notani brought the network way of conducting business just as LinkedIn did so to managing professional contacts. They re-imagined how business software is built, delivered, and used for today’s dynamic and highly inter-connected world.
It would be some years later that the business world would come to recognize that the years 2002 through 2004 marked when the pioneers in network platforms, such as Reid Hoffman (LinkedIn 2002), and Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook 2004), would forever change the face of many industries.
Since then network platforms have really taken off, and apps like Uber, AirBnB, have demonstrated the immense value to be gained from matching supply to demand and collaborating on a real-time, multi-party network.
Today the company leadership is more convinced than ever that only a network approach can solve a network problem.
Real Time Value Network: Zero-Lag and Frictionless Business Collaboration for Global Enterprises
After more than 14 years of research, development and testing, One Network’s patented cloud platform, The Real Time Value Network, is proven to simplify business systems technology, increase speed and agility, and deliver higher service levels at dramatically lower costs.
Their vision is born out in the results. Leading companies such as Del Monte, Dana, and the U.S. Marine Corps have simplified their technology, boosted efficiency and service levels. One Network was awarded the Dept of Navy IT award for its solution and work with the Marine Corps.
On average, customers on the Real Time Value Network can reduce overall costs by 3-5%, see a 56% increase in inventory turns, and 38% decrease in safety stock (“Real Value of Value Chain Networks,” Nucleus Research, 2017).
