OAKLAND, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 24, 2013) - GT Nexus today announced that Procter & Gamble (P&G) has renewed and expanded its contract for global supply chain management technology and services. P&G has been using the GT Nexus platform since 2001 to manage its global logistics spend. The expanded solution gives users centralized transportation management and real time visibility into inventory flows across the global supply chain.
"Supply chains are networks that require a different class of technology," said Sean Feeney, CEO at GT Nexus. "Over the past few years many companies have steadily extended GT Nexus across different regions, essentially turning on the lights internally and at partners."
GT Nexus uses a "single version of truth" model to deliver supply chain visibility and execution by shifting the information processing from the nodes to the center of the network. All parties are connected to the same cloud-based platform and partners are provided views into a common, standard information set, including the status of orders, inventory, shipments, documents and payments.
Using a centralized TMS control layer, communications about shipment information and bookings are communicated in a common format to GT Nexus's connected carrier network. As information changes, the entire network gets updated instantly providing an unprecedented level of global transportation management and visibility.
GT Nexus also provides clients with a data quality managed service, which helps ensure the information flowing across the partner network is accurate, timely and complete. Many companies underestimate the data quality challenge. As an industry utility that processes over $100 billion in commerce each year, GT Nexus has deep experience managing complex data flows.
