Today’s manufacturers must manage hyper-complex, global supply chains stretching across multiple suppliers, production sites, distributors and channel partners. With so many disparate stakeholders and links, lack of visibility unfortunately becomes a common problem, leading to costly, reactive decisions that impact supply and demand balance and profitability.
How can your CPG company improve visibility, agility and profitability across your supply chain?
ERA connects the data from the various systems and stakeholders across your supply chain on our blockchain-enabled mesh connectivity layer.
Holistic, permanent data on blockchain sets the perfect data foundation for our AI and machine learning models to run predictive and prescriptive analysis.
Optimize critical tasks like demand forecasting, supply chain planning and supplier integration with our suite of AI-powered applications.
Suppliers play an essential role in the CPG supply chain, as the quality and integrity of their components and raw materials directly impact the final product sold to consumers. You need to make sure supplies are available to meet demand, as well as uphold your organization’s standards.
The Omnichain ERA platform includes a supplier integration and management application that easily plugs into any supplier system or database, giving you real-time visibility and insights that build trust, accountability and traceability across your supply chain.
Work together to ensure enough supplies are available to maintain manufacturing output and meet consumer demand—as it fluctuates.
Authenticate all incoming materials meet your standards for quality, ethical sourcing and sustainability before they leave suppliers’ plants.
Support regulatory compliance and the mitigation of product recalls with immutable, traceable data logged on blockchain.
Without real-time visibility across the entire supply chain, it’s hard to understand what consumer demand looks like and where that demand is coming from at a given moment. Today, most CPG companies thus operate under a reactive model. Demand for a product rises, so they increase production and output. When that item runs out of stock, they send more to fill warehouses and store shelves.
But such a reactive model runs the risk of:
