Blockchain

The solution to close your supply chain's "hall of mirrors"

OVERVIEW

Supply chains operate like a "hall of mirrors" with billions, if not trillions, of document copies (and copies of copies) duplicated between parties. The result? Enormous complexity. Tracking, reconciling and verifying this torrent of inventory, purchases, invoices, bills of laden, shipments and receipts is hugely challenging. But there’s a solution. With blockchain strategies in place, substantial cost and efficiency benefits are achievable. And problems with reconciliation, miscommunication and poor contract enforcement can evaporate.

Overview

HOW BLOCKCHAIN WILL TRANSFORM AND SIMPLIFY THE SUPPLY CHAIN

We have closely examined the benefits that blockchain brings to the supply chain. In today’s digital marketplace, they’re far-reaching and already within reach. Supply Chain leaders must act now to capture opportunities from blockchain in core areas of operations:

WHY TAKE
ACTION NOW?

Even basic application of blockchain technology in supply chains can deliver major cost and efficiency benefits—from connecting with suppliers and customers to enormous reductions in transaction volumes and irregularities.
