project44 Extends Advanced Visibility Platform with Multimodal Inventory Tracking and Rapid Carrier Onboarding Capabilities
eCommerce has fundamentally changed supply chain expectations. New standards in visibility, predictability, flexibility and product availability based on the consumer delivery experience have fully crept into all B2B and B2C businesses. To help organizations meet these evolving on-demand customer expectations, project44, the world’s leading Advanced Visibility Platform for shippers and third-party logistics firms, announced two new product offerings during the Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference intended to deliver sustainable and scalable commercial success to their growing customer base of Fortune 500 retailers, manufacturers, distributors and logistics providers.
The Visibility Operations Center (VOC) is project44’s newly enhanced, easy-to-use and intuitive application that provides visibility into global, multimodal transportation for all parties across the supply chain. project44 also unveiled their Network Management Center (NMC) -- a fully automated, transparent and secure carrier onboarding application that rapidly connects North American and European truckload providers into the Advanced Visibility Platform.
“To successfully navigate today’s complex and uncertain operating conditions, supply chain leaders need intuitive and simple digital applications that allow them to rapidly access high-fidelity data and leverage predictive business intelligence,” said project44 Chief Strategy Officer Mike Reed. “The VOC and NMC are examples of how project44 is enabling our growing customer base to seamlessly connect shipments, people and carriers together to achieve actionable Advanced Visibility that goes beyond just ‘dots on a map’.”
Visibility Operations Center
project44’s Visibility Operations Center provides the necessary digital infrastructure, collaboration tools and business intelligence to efficiently manage resources, improve predictability, strengthen supplier-retailer collaboration and refine lead time.
The VOC seamlessly stitches together different transportation modes in a single view. With this revolutionary functionality, users can track global shipments or orders continuously without having to toggle between screens, applications or dashboards. This includes the ability to tie purchase order, line item or SKU-level details directly into a specific tracking experience -- improving product availability, inventory levels and resource management. Single-view multimodal functionality is currently available as containers, shipments and orders move from ocean to rail, with additional modes to be added in the future.
For example, retailers and manufacturers can now start to track all holiday and peak season related orders and shipments in a single view regardless of where they are in the supply chain. In just one application, project44’s customers can proactively keep watch over and collaborate to prioritize the delivery of certain SKUs, knowing that any inventory not on the shelves by a certain date is a waste.
One such customer already realizing the benefits of seamlessly connecting multimodal transportation exceptions with inventory planning is a leading global electronics manufacturer. “To meet the strict delivery deadlines, we need to have real-time visibility into every single SKU and box in our supply chain. project44 enables us to collect extensive information from disparate parts of our multimodal transportation ecosystem. We automatically marry that data with our inventory databases to provide one single big picture view of everything that matters across our entire supply chain.”
Network Management Center
The ROI of transportation visibility fully depends on a vendor’s ability to seamlessly integrate with their customer’s unique ecosystem of global carriers. For most, carrier integration is cobbled together through cumbersome email surveys and manual phone calls which can drag on for weeks or even months, significantly delaying go-live.
The Network Management Center is a first-of-its-kind fully automated, transparent and scalable way to connect North American and European over-the-road capacity into project44’s Advanced Visibility Platform. project44’s intuitive new application reduces tedious onboarding processes to a few short steps. 50% of new carriers connect into the project44 network and initiate data sharing within hours, with 80% of carriers signing up in less than ten days of being invited — significantly improving visibility coverage and time to value for project44 customers.
Data privacy and protection is another key concern among carriers and can lead to onboarding delays. project44’s NMC is at the leading edge of data security, protections and privacy in this market, with clear and detailed options for data sharing, and is the only platform that is fully GDPR compliant.
To hear more about project44’s groundbreaking new applications, visit them at the Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference exhibitor booth #662, attend their best practice session on Wednesday, May 15, 2019 at 3:00 p.m. GMT or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
project44 is the world’s leading Advanced Visibility Platform for shippers and third-party logistics firms. project44 connects, automates and provides visibility into key transportation processes to accelerate insights and shorten the time it takes to turn those insights into actions. Leveraging the power of the project44 cloud-based platform, organizations can increase operational efficiencies, reduce costs, improve shipping performance, and deliver an exceptional Amazon-like experience to their customers.
Connected to thousands of carriers worldwide and having comprehensive coverage for all ELD and telematics devices on the market, project44 supports all transportation modes and shipping types, including Parcel, Final-Mile, Less-than-Truckload, Volume Less-than-Truckload, Truckload, Rail, Intermodal, and Ocean.
