This partnership sees e-Logics appointed as the sole African hosting and solutions provider for One Network software, states e-Logics managing director Johann van der Westhuizen, adding that the American provider's unique, world-class service offering is set to take Africa by storm. One Network's cloud-based platform is the only supply chain solution of its kind in the world, he explains, noting that its strongest selling point is that it enables customers to easily collaborate with all their value chain participants on a single network.
The Collaboration Technology Provider and the Role of Cloud Computing
Emphasising the role that cloud computing can play in the supply chain, Van Der Westhuizen explains that it makes it easier to respond and adapt to changes in the market, while lowering costs. The cloud-based One Network platform also enables supply chain managers to re-plan the supply network continuously as changes happen. Every player is able to work off the same forecast and replenishment plan, which also takes each players constraints into consideration. There is no need to second guess each other, and it brings about significant savings across the board. Everybody looks at a single version of the truth in real time. Its success is reflected in the more than 10 000 companies currently connected to One Networks USA network, he stresses.
One Network Serving Many Industries
One Network serves a variety of industries, including retail, FMCG, technology, the public sector, automotive, energy and logistics, providing supply chain technology and software that enables its customers to improve their operational efficiency, lower inventory and transportation costs throughout the supply chain, deliver improved service levels by reducing stock outs and late deliveries, as well as lower IT costs.
Greg Brady, CEO of One Network Enterprises, emphasises that businesses, both large and small, need a 360 degree view into all levels of logistics and the supply chain. They also need structured and unstructured communication capabilities between network partners and global end-to-end tracking and visibility throughout the entire transaction lifecycle, he adds. One Network could not be more excited about joining forces with e-Logics to enter the African market and bring these solutions to organisations here.
