I've Got Supply Chain on a Cloudy Day, in Supply Chain Digital

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 12, 2012) - Using a cloud-based supplier relations management (SRM) solution dramatically reduces the time, cost and complexity of establishing and managing a worldwide supply chain network -- a necessity in today's global environment.

Buying and moving goods across borders introduces a level of complexity not found in domestic commerce, and increases the need for end-to-end visibility, collaboration and a streamlined approach. Cloud-based SRM tools allow companies to quickly and easily establish a common collaborative framework with their suppliers, regardless of time zone, language, currency, technology platform or sophistication level.

In today's global economy that approach no longer works. A U.S.-based company may source its goods in China and sell to customers in France. Companies may not work directly with all of their suppliers. They may interact via third parties such as brokers, or their suppliers may have suppliers of their own. Yet importers must comply with all trade regulations, including knowledge of all their suppliers, regardless of whether they source from them directly or not.
