project44 Extends Advanced Visibility Platform with Multimodal Inventory Tracking and Rapid Carrier Onboarding Capabilities

Sponsored by Businesswire

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
the Gartner
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

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.
