Deliver Best-in-Class Service Levels While Minimizing Inventories
One Network’s cloud platform provides an end-to-end operating backbone that supports some of the world’s largest consumer goods companies. By connecting to our “many-to-many” network environment, you can manage planning, execution, and transactions across tens of thousands of your trading partners.
The result is unprecedented visibility and control across your supply chain while reducing total system cost to deploy, maintain, and support.
Today most consumer goods companies lack the ability to generate either order or inventory visibility with actionability across their supply network. They also lack the ability to quickly respond to fluctuating consumer demands, frequently resulting in sales promotions that run out of stock which in turn leads to lost business and customers. They absorb increasing numbers of product launch failures, struggle with higher inventory costs, and are saddled with ROI’s on trade promotions that can often turn negative.
A lean supply network that enables Lighting Science and its trading partners to be highly responsive to the end consumer will help us greatly in maintaining a competitive advantage. We’ve chosen One Network’s Real Time Value Network for its proven ability to get us there.
