Saphran And ITW Present New Approach To Supply-Chain Management

"In our constantly changing business environment, managers from companies such as ITW, face demands for more agility, accuracy and flexibility to meet uncertainty in the supply chain," Bassey adds. "Just how do you forecast for a hurricane on the East Coast closing critical ports of delivery, a tsunami causing lengthy delays in critical electronic components, a recession dramatically cutting automotive production or significant key-commodity price changes?

"Saphran technology helps its customers meet these major supply-chain challenges."
