“Cloud produces Intelligent Supply Chains” – White Paper

“Cloud produces Intelligent Supply Chains” – White Paper
The use of cloud-based IT platforms in the automotive industry leads to significant improvements of results of cooperation between manufacturers and suppliers. This is the conclusion of the current white paper of the Frankenthal-based IT company AXIT, “Collaboration along the supply chain in the automotive industry”.

Digitalization along the supply chain allows for smooth interacting collaboration of the participants. Stock and transport cost is reduced significantly; at the same time production processes can be accelerated and delivery periods are shortened.

“Cloud-based IT platforms allow for flowing cooperation between many participants in a network; bilateral business relations are replaced by collaboration”, Frauke Heistermann, member of AXIT’s management, describes one of the aspects of cross-company integration of suppliers, logistics providers and manufacturers via a central IT platform.

Here the cloud is considered an enabler of collaboration in the diverse world of the automotive industry: “The central IT platform enables cross-company workflows and allows for a complete view on the procurement process”, explains Heistermann. “This expedites information and management processes.”

Cooperation partners in complex procurement processes are provided important information at the earliest possible stage. This way they gain more room for manoeuvre, make better decisions and plan more precisely. Once data and information has been entered into the IT platform it is available immediately for all participants at the push of a button, independent from location, and – does not need to be entered multiple times.

“Due to the transparency in the supply chain errors can be avoided and logistical processes can be planned proactively”
, says Heistermann. Apart from that, the close and partner-like cooperation makes for an innovation-friendly climate.

The white paper “Collaboration along the supply chain in the automotive industry” can also be requested free of charge at www.axit.de/en/automotive-collaboration.
