TraceLink’s Agile Process Teams is a multi-enterprise work management application that enables cross-enterprise and cross-functional teams focused on supplier relationship management, external manufacturing, and more to digitally execute, manage and track shared processes across supply chain relationships.
Agile Process Teams provides a better way to manage work with internal stakeholders, supply chain partners, and cross-functional teams. Agile Process Teams connects people, processes, and information to orchestrate shared work and track the details of business processes by leveraging network tools for structured workflow, standards-based data definition, flexible team management, and contextual communications across all team members.
- Leverages a unique team-, and supply chain network-based, approach that spans across departments and companies to enable them to manage and track shared work.
- Enables a company to integrate its supply chain ecosystems in the form of digital teams so that they can execute on internal and cross-company processes.
- Provides those digital teams with the ability to execute shared workflows and exchange information together in a shared network application.
Using Agile Process Teams, companies can create high performance and flexible digital networks around their physical supply chains, developing new attributes that enable:
- Actionable visibility and responsiveness to demand signals and supply changes
- Agility in reacting to unexpected disruptions or issues that impact daily supply chain operations
- Continual evolution and adaptation to market or environmental conditions through the use of real-time data to improve efficiency and productivity
- Confidence in high quality and right-first-time delivery
The result is not only a new ability to improve end-to-end supply chain performance, but also a greater trust in the supply chain’s ability to meet every growing and evolving business goals.
