Blockchains for Supply Chain Networks

Overview

The CloudFresco solution allows managing multi-level and multi-channel supply chain networks, enabling transactions between manufacturers, distributors, retailers and retail customers, with easy transaction reconciliation for tax compliance with GST, real-time global visibility, as well as efficient exception handling.

Supply Chain Network and Transactions

Brands create a Supply Chain Network of suppliers, distributors, and retailers. The network is organized by regions. Products, pricing, and promotion details are set in the product catalog. The product catalog is shared with distributors and retailers. Order transactions flow freely between companies in the network. Each brand has full visibility across it's supply chain.

Omni-Channel Operations

Brands drive product sales through multiple channels, including digital (eCommerce) and physical channels (brick and mortar stores). Customers have a seamless buying experience across channels. Customers can view products online, select and buy the product online, and then either pickup in store or have the product shipped from a store or a distribution centre. Customers can also view and buy products in store, and then either take the product home, or have the product shipped to them. Customers have a unified view of orders across channels and returns/exchanges can be cross-channel. Customers receive recommendations on products, as well as receive overall lower prices on products.

Brands enjoy many benefits by using the CloudFresco platform. Brands are able to get their products to their customers in the right quantity, at the right price, at the right place, at the right time, with the right promotion. Visibility across the supply chain reduces dependence on accurate forecasts, as well as gives the ability to handle exceptions. Omni-channel operations significantly reduce fulfillment costs, and increase margins. Brands retain ownership of their customers, which allows them to better engage with their customers, and increase brand loyalty.

CloudFresco is designed from the ground up to be scalable, and to run in the cloud. Being highly resource efficient and easy to manage, brands can host their supply chains on our platform, or can host on their own private cloud.
