Lack of Collaboration / Visibility
Empowered consumers, mounting global competition, and a shifting marketplace means companies need to develop secure, collaborative technology now to avoid losing sales opportunities or being driven out of the market
Product Innovation
Manufacturers need to focus on continuous product innovation to compete and yet existing technologies have yielded sluggish and extended product innovation cycles due to the inability to securely collaborate between trading partners
Multiple Trading Partners
The lack of flexible data environment means changes by trading partners are not easily accommodated by other partners which results in inaccurate and inconsistent product and partner information - ultimately causing inventory issues and cost everyone money
Inventory Availability
Reaching across firewalls and platforms and reconciling different business definitions is very hard which means brands have little or no visibility into the shared supply chain and suffer from a lack of trust and synchronization
