New applications dramatically improve customer experience, product

availability, operational efficiency and time to value.

PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--eCommerce has fundamentally changed supply chain expectations. New

standards in visibility, predictability, flexibility and product

availability based on the consumer delivery experience have fully crept

into all B2B and B2C businesses. To help organizations meet these

evolving on-demand customer expectations, project44,

the world’s leading Advanced Visibility Platform for shippers and

third-party logistics firms, announced two new product offerings during

Supply Chain Executive Conference intended to deliver sustainable

and scalable commercial success to their growing customer base of

Fortune 500 retailers, manufacturers, distributors and logistics

providers.

The Visibility Operations Center (VOC) is project44’s newly

enhanced, easy-to-use and intuitive application that provides visibility

into global, multimodal transportation for all parties across the supply

chain. project44 also unveiled their Network Management Center (NMC)

-- a fully automated, transparent and secure carrier onboarding

application that rapidly connects North American and European truckload

providers into the Advanced Visibility Platform.

“To successfully navigate today’s complex and uncertain operating

conditions, supply chain leaders need intuitive and simple digital

applications that allow them to rapidly access high-fidelity data and

leverage predictive business intelligence,” said project44 Chief

Strategy Officer Mike Reed. “The VOC and NMC are examples of how

project44 is enabling our growing customer base to seamlessly connect

shipments, people and carriers together to achieve actionable Advanced

Visibility that goes beyond just ‘dots on a map’.”

Visibility Operations Center

project44’s Visibility Operations Center provides the necessary digital

infrastructure, collaboration tools and business intelligence to

efficiently manage resources, improve predictability, strengthen

supplier-retailer collaboration and refine lead time.

The VOC seamlessly stitches together different transportation modes in a

single view. With this revolutionary functionality, users can track

global shipments or orders continuously without having to toggle between

screens, applications or dashboards. This includes the ability to tie

purchase order, line item or SKU-level details directly into a specific

tracking experience -- improving product availability, inventory levels

and resource management. Single-view multimodal functionality is

currently available as containers, shipments and orders move from ocean

to rail, with additional modes to be added in the future.

For example, retailers and manufacturers can now start to track all

holiday and peak season related orders and shipments in a single view

regardless of where they are in the supply chain. In just one

application, project44’s customers can proactively keep watch over and

collaborate to prioritize the delivery of certain SKUs, knowing that any

inventory not on the shelves by a certain date is a waste.

One such customer already realizing the benefits of seamlessly

connecting multimodal transportation exceptions with inventory planning

is a leading global electronics manufacturer. “To meet the strict

delivery deadlines, we need to have real-time visibility into every

single SKU and box in our supply chain. project44 enables us to collect

extensive information from disparate parts of our multimodal

transportation ecosystem. We automatically marry that data with our

inventory databases to provide one single big picture view of everything

that matters across our entire supply chain.”

Network Management Center

The ROI of transportation visibility fully depends on a vendor’s ability

to seamlessly integrate with their customer’s unique ecosystem

of global carriers. For most, carrier integration is cobbled together

through cumbersome email surveys and manual phone calls which can drag

on for weeks or even months, significantly delaying go-live.

The Network Management Center is a first-of-its-kind fully automated,

transparent and scalable way to connect North American and European

over-the-road capacity into project44’s Advanced Visibility Platform.

project44’s intuitive new application reduces tedious onboarding

processes to a few short steps. 50% of new carriers connect into the

project44 network and initiate data sharing within hours, with 80% of

carriers signing up in less than ten days of being invited —

significantly improving visibility coverage and time to value for

project44 customers.

Data privacy and protection is another key concern among carriers and

can lead to onboarding delays. project44’s NMC is at the leading edge of

data security, protections and privacy in this market, with clear and

detailed options for data sharing, and is the only platform that is

fully GDPR compliant.
