Sharing information and facilitating communication between companies, retailers, and suppliers in real time is key for efficient supply chain management. Meade Willis’ Value Added Network services help to simplify the process by securely facilitating communication and the sharing of data between trading partners.
The data being exchanged through the VAN can also be validated to ensure it complies with universal standards and is properly reconciled to ensure delivery. This direct exchange increases the speed of transactions while also reducing the chances of both machine and human errors that may occur.
MW’s VAN services are complemented by the provision of visibility tools which show the real-time delivery status of data and corresponding integrated workflows, allowing companies to better coordinate dependent activities in a more automated and efficient manner rather than relying on the exchange of phone calls and emails.
