Because of coronavirus, we now face the biggest challenge in living memory to business continuity and coordination. This is a challenge for any organization, but it may be particularly challenging for industries with global supply-chains and large partner networks. So, when everybody across the supply-chains works remotely - how can you coordinate it?
This is actually exactly why we built Centersource, out of frustration with the lack of overview of the supply-chain, lack of efficiency of emails and lack of automated processes.
It was built to offer virtual supply-chain collaboration and automation for large organizations and their networks so all could keep up to date from office, home, during travel and remove risk should anybody quit or become ill.
During these times it is especially important to oversee progress, obligations, deviations, find most affordable freight costs and start new business. For this purpose and in this traditional industry, one of the possible risks also includes documentation which is one of the main instruments to receive both payments and cargo.
As the industry is based on international trade it requires multiple institutions and authorities to function on both the exporting and importing sides. As the COVID 19 situation is very fluid it is a realistic possibility that a business can go from slow to catastrophic - should the Chambers of Commerce, Post, Courier, Boards of Agriculture or Banks stop to operate physically or face heavy delays.
Chambers of commerce or Banks stop accepting physical visits to stamp and handover physical documentation.
Domestic Post or Courier are non-operational on some routes, face heavy delays or lose the documentation meanwhile cargo is near ETA or counting at port storage and demurrage in POD.
Electronic documentation, integration and automation reduces these risks significantly whilst improving performance, visibility, transparency, compliance and efficiency.
