Automating the Supply Chain

Supply chains in pharmaceutical, food and beverage, metals and chemical industries are facing challenges brought about by complex network of disconnected systems and independent software. The result is typically a large number of staff required to perform time consuming and manual tasks in order to manage the communication between these systems. This includes Enterprise Resource Management, Process Control, Warehouse Management, Transportation Management and Category Management.
