E2open launches two new applications

E2open + Parent + Holdings% 2C + Inc. (NYSE: ETWO), a leading network provider of a critical, cloud-based end-to-end supply chain management platform, today announced the release of its update. fourth quarter technology update, with major innovations to help customers make informed business decisions in tough economic conditions. With version 21.4, E2open introduces two new intelligent applications: Supply Sensing to forecast supply shortages and mitigate risks; and Global Logistics Orchestration to determine the business impact of shipping delays on downstream operations and service commitments.

“Unprecedented demand for goods, limited supply and transportation delays have become hallmarks of 2021, as have downstream disruptions to production and distribution,” said Pawan Joshi, executive vice president of management of products and strategy at E2open. “Protecting businesses from the impact of shortages is no longer a simple calculation of whether there is enough inventory to meet the forecast, but also the mathematical probability of having sufficient supply at any given time. In today’s real world, the answer has shifted from a simple ‘yes-no’ to a ‘maybe’, with the probability of an impact depending on a complex combination of variations in demand, supply and transport. The apps introduced in this release address these challenges, mitigate risk, and provide a new level of supply assurance, despite what the world has in store for you.

“E2open’s Supply Sensing app provides new insight into the likelihood of shortages over time using real-time data, supply gaps and a new class of algorithms that deal with probabilities rather than certainties. Joshi continues. “Advanced analytics also recommend actions to address gaps resulting from supply chain uncertainties and proactively mitigate risk. When transportation delays occur, the degree of economic impact varies for each shipment, as does the response. E2open’s Global Logistics Orchestration app assesses downstream business impacts, prescribes the best course of action for each shipment, and orchestrates corrective actions. We’re very excited about these two apps – and the other innovations in this quarterly release – to help customers across industries improve supply chain performance and make better decisions in a much more uncertain world. than before the pandemic. ”

Some of the major improvements in this release include:

Channel shaping

  • New scheduling functionality helps brands generate higher returns on channel marketing investments. Brand owners and their channel partners can now create detailed marketing business plans, understand funding needs, capture its execution, and adjust plans to improve partner performance and return on marketing spend.
  • Gain visibility on the performance of incentive programs thanks to a new discount dashboard. Detailed metrics allow channel management teams to better understand which programs provide the best results and allocate resources for optimal impact.

From advanced visibility into data cleansing and audits for faster error resolution, to powerful administration tools to control all aspects of channel marketing campaigns, these features help customers improve their channel’s efficiency and to save money.

Demand detection and business planning

  • A new application, Supply Sensing, uses real-time data and variabilities in supply, demand and transport to predict the likelihood of shortages over time in today’s volatile supply chains. Advanced visibility into the likelihood of a lack of service allows businesses to proactively mitigate risk, ensure continuity of supply and avoid financial penalties.
  • Customers can now choose between heuristics and cost optimization for supply planning to achieve the best outcome for any business objective – such as minimized supply costs, an optimized stock position or the best on-time delivery for customer demand – in a way that takes into account all the constraints of the supply chain of all partners.
  • Powered by an in-memory graphics engine for lightning-fast calculations, the enhanced business planning view provides a superior user experience. Tree layouts allow planners to plan at multiple levels simultaneously with real-time updates across dimensions, time horizons and downstream time series to productivity improvement.
  • Full parameter simulation capabilities allow planners and data scientists to set more than 80 demand detection parameters, giving unprecedented control over E2open artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms.

Global trade management

  • New features capture customs deposit data and formatting of past customer declarations, making it faster to start filing with new countries or those with updated requirements, improving time to value and reducing costs. Companies can also interactively analyze their previous deposits to understand the overall costs of tariffs, tax expenditures, and fees and savings associated with trade agreements over time.

  • Content coverage by country in Global Knowledge® continues to grow, with tariff classification data for six new countries, territories and jurisdictions bringing the total coverage to 221. With the increase in e-commerce shipments to all regions of the world, these expansions are important in helping shippers and logistics providers accurately assess duties and taxes, even in small, remote countries. .

  • New natural language processing capabilities allow carriers and logistics service providers to sift through all available freight documents, cross-checking product-level descriptions against relevant import and export restrictions. This product focused cargo control ability helps protect carriers against commercial crimes resulting from unknowingly transporting potentially restricted goods.

Transport and logistics

  • A new candidacy, E2open’s global logistics orchestration determines the business impact of transportation delays on downstream operations and customer service commitments. Pre-delay notifications via in-transit milestones and AI-enabled predictive ETA are combined with downstream order data to proactively identify risks and take corrective action for any shipment – and only shipments – where delays have financial implications.

  • New economical and ecological functionality provides the ability to plan, forecast and consolidate shipments for optimal use of containers by integrating shipping and ordering data from upcoming suppliers.

  • Improved transport management capabilities allow shippers to make payments via PayCargo® to maritime carriers through Single sign-on (SSO) integration with E2open. This partnership makes the payment process more efficient for carriers and shippers and helps to expedite the delivery of cargo to the consignee.

Supply management and collaborative manufacturing

  • New configurable workflows based on exceptions For private label manufacturing of urgent products, gain visibility into quality issues during the sampling cycle and can take corrective action when necessary. These rapid response capabilities reduce the risk of delays and help speed time to market.
  • New filtering of forecast and inventory attributes improve the efficiency and speed of identifying the specific information required for successful collaboration programs. This is particularly relevant for any business that operates data from multiple levels of upstream or downstream supply chain partners.
  • A new, end-to-end genealogy flow report allows companies to quickly identify the provenance of a specific material or component, as well as any subsequent products in which it has been used. By obtaining a consolidated view of the tracking and traceability of materials and components at any stage of production, brand owners can easily identify any item with an identified quality issue, reduce quality assurance costs and help meet regulatory and safety standards.

Network (E2NET)

  • The navigation schedules of carriers in E2open’s ocean network are now directly integrated into SAP Transportation Management. This immediate access to the most recent scheduling information means shippers can make accurate and timely reservations without having to constantly monitor carrier schedule changes and manually upload new information into the system. This integration makes logistics teams more efficient and helps ensure the on-time delivery of goods to market.
