Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), the global leader in critical event management and enterprise safety software applications to help keep people safe and businesses running, today announced the launch of Critical Event Management for Supply Chain at Global Security Exchange (GSX 2019) in Chicago. The new solution leverages Everbridge’s Visual Command Center to enable security and operations professionals to partner with other business leaders and support resiliency by combining Everbridge’s risk intelligence, visualization and alerting capabilities to assess supply chain risk events and mitigate or eliminate their potential impact.
As supply chains become more complex, manufacturing hubs, distribution routes and customer sites face increased risk from many different types of events and disruptions. Weather, political upheaval, earthquakes, and transportation delays can all expose organizations to the risk of unnecessary downtime, expediting fees, and failure to meet customer expectations, demand or service level requirements.
At the same time, corporate and physical security professionals are increasingly partnering with other parts of their business to drive operational value and ROI through territory expansion, cost containment and revenue growth and preservation. The ability to provide critical visibility into supply chain risk, along with the automation and alerting capabilities to reduce the impact of delays and incidents, can significantly elevate the strategic profile of the global security operations team.
“CEM for Supply Chain is a dynamic and comprehensive risk intelligence, visualization and critical event management solution that can help organizations save money, time and valuable resources by more proactively identifying, assessing and managing disruptions to their global supply chain,” said Imad Mouline, CTO of Everbridge. “Better risk intelligence improves an organization’s ability to identify potential supply chain threats, weak links and choke points. This information and visibility enable security and supply chain professionals to make better informed decisions that can minimize the impact that incidents can have on delivery times, operations and costs.”
Additional CEM for Supply Chain capabilities include:
- Leveraging Visual Command Center, operators and analysts can visualize their supply chain, turn by turn and stop by stop, with integrated risk data from NC4 and other intelligence sources.
- Professionals can define supply chain route stops, routes, suppliers and other information.
- Supply chain stakeholders can gain context with intelligence from other sources that may help in assessing threats related to weather, traffic, hurricane evacuation routes, global ports, railways, shipping lanes and more.
- Through integration with Everbridge, when a critical event occurs that impacts a supply chain, professionals can leverage solutions such as Incident Communication and Crisis Management modules to further mitigate risk.
Everbridge will be providing demonstrations of CEM for Supply Chain at booth #124 for the duration of #GSX2019 in Chicago. The Everbridge team will highlight the additional value that security practitioners can deliver to their teams and broader organizations by offering more proactive and decisive assessment and automation of activities related to supply chain resiliency and optimization.
