Smarter Supply Chain Decisions Start with Connectivity and Visibility
In an increasingly interconnected world, companies struggle to control global supply chains. At the heart of the problem is the challenge of collaborating and sharing information among a multitude of partners. The solution rests in RedPrairie Connect. RedPrairie Connect is a fully-integrated Software-as-a-Service Electronic Document Exchange (EDI) solution that provides a fast and cost effective opportunity to automate critical supply chain processes and promote information sharing between all trading partners.
Through RedPrairie Connect the world’s leading transportation providers, suppliers, carriers, freight forwarders and third-party logistics companies can connect to trading partners to gain agility and improve execution by exchanging critical supply chain information. Three key areas empower supply chain control:
- Connectivity among trading partners across complex, multi-tiered supply networks creates a need for one community network that can accept input from many sources; a network that can accept input from many disparate sources, translate documents into a common format, and provide for easy integration into supply chain execution systems for immediate action. RedPrairie Connect is that community network.
- Visibility, in the form of electronic information exchange, provides near-real time supply chain intelligence and is a key driver of optimal supply chain performance. RedPrairie Connect enables the supply chain community to monitor and react to unplanned events within the network.
- Action is the endgame. RedPrairie Connect enables every partner in the community to take well-informed action that yields top-line and bottom-line results throughout the supply chain.
The RedPrairie Connect team is a professional staff of subject-matter experts dedicated to improving the connectivity, visibility and well-informed action that empowers control over your supply chain. Our 7/24/365 operation is your single point of contact for supply chain needs.
Automating Business Transactions
Moving business documents electronically is not new technology. Business-to-business transactions have been automated through electronic document interchange (EDI) for over a decade, but the high cost of establishing and maintaining these networks makes them prohibitive for many retailers, vendors, suppliers and carriers. As a result, paperwork, phone calls, emails, fax transmissions and duplicate data entry continue to flourish, contributing to high error rates, misplaced orders, missing transaction updates and lengthy processing times.
Why RedPrairie Connect
Now with RedPrairie Connect, you can have a low-cost method for electronically exchanging documents between all your business partners, regardless of the current system infrastructure in both companies. RedPrairie Connect is a fully integrated solution available for retailers, vendors, suppliers and carriers that offers a fully automated machine-to-machine exchange of business documents. RedPrairie connect is a low cost, hassle free EDI solution that conforms to industry standards.
