Supply Chain Collaboration

Create demand driven Supply Chains!

With PipeChain VMI you can build predictable collaborative supply chain processes with customers and/or suppliers, where you share data, agree on process rules and act on deviations. Our Traffic Light Approach means easy real-time monitoring where you act on alerts and manage by exception. This enables you to plan and deliver towards REAL demand and hence avoiding the bull whip effect. In a nutshell: You focus solely on critical supply chain issues – and PipeChain VMI takes care of the rest.

You don’t order water

Think outside the box. There are other supply chains where customers are served without ordering anything, just signing a contract. In VMI the supplier delivers towards real demand and process and information sharing is in sync at customer and supplier. No double work and no ordering by the customer, but full transparency.

Decisions based on the full picture

When you have information about the full supply chain picture, you will see potential problems early and you can distinguish between cause and effect.

Lower your transportation costs

With better information and more flexible planning mainly performed by the supplier you can gain better fill rate and less express deliveries. This gives you better results both financially and environmentally.
