Viewlocity's supply chain solution gets DHL

Viewlocity's supply chain management systems providing high visibility have been adopted by DHL and Ryder System.

Viewlocity Inc. a provider of software and services that integrate e-business networks and synchronize supply webs, announced that DHL and Ryder System, Inc. have selected Viewlocity's new TradeSync applications to help gain more control and visibility of their global trading communities. The applications provide a comprehensive view of shipment and inventory status that overcome the disparity of enterprise and trading partner systems.

Viewlocity's new supply web applications, TradeSync Shipment Visibility and TradeSync Inventory Visibility, enable a company or a community to react with intelligent responses to real time supply web events. These applications provide companies with better visibility within their supply web, allow them to use their assets better, deliver products more quickly and lower costs due to better awareness of their trading partner capabilities, globally.

"The supply chain is broken," said Anders Berglund, vice president and managing director, Viewlocity Asia Pacific. "The new reality for global companies is the concept of a supply web, in which all trading partners truly collaborate, and which prevents these fractures from occurring."

The current generation of enterprise applications for supply chain planning and execution traps inventory and shipment data in numerous silos. Viewlocity's new TradeSync applications provide visibility of information across all Supply Chain Management (SCM) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems.
