Today’s modern supply chains with multiple parties involved in creating and distributing goods is extraordinarily complex. Depending on the product, the supply chain can span any number of touch points and stages, global locations, a multitude of transactions, have a large number of individuals and entities involved, and extend over months of time. Due to the complexity and lack of transparency of our current supply chains, blockchain technology can transform the supply chain and logistics industry.
The following represent only a fraction of the digital ledger applications which our supply chain customers have deployed using Boardwalk Enterprise Blockchain. With Boardwalk, you can quickly configure, connect, and deploy an enterprise blockchain application for a fraction of the cost and time it takes to configure and deploy using alternative blockchain technologies. And don't forget, it's your existing legacy data models that capture the intellectual property of your company and create a system of differentiation that sets your company apart-- only Boardwalk uses these without re-platforming.
The key to an effective S&OP process is to enable secure, trusted, multi-party collaboration. This means letting users still operate with their current legacy models and processes, but now with collaborative blockchain enabled data management capabilities. With this capability, rather than expending company resources on manually collecting, rolling up, and assessing data, users could instead focus on the plan data itself. This means companies could spend more time making effective management decisions and driving their business to greater profitability.
After decades of spending significant money on complex EDI systems, trading partners are still mostly just exchanging transactional information like purchase orders, shipment notices and invoices. And, they are using spreadsheets to do it. With Boardwalk Enterprise Blockchain, trading partners can break down the barriers that limit the exchange of dynamic enterprise data so important to trading relationships and turn rigid organizational relationships into flexible, adaptive, trusted, and secure value chains ready to respond to market and customer shifts.
Boardwalk offers demand and supply planners a blockchain enabled platform which lets them leverage existing data environments for collecting input from all parts of the extended supply chain, but does so in a robust, reliable, collaborative and secure manner.
