Why Rapid Deployment of Supply Chain Visibility and Traceability is Crucial


In today’s fast-paced and dynamic business landscape, supply chain visibility and traceability have become paramount for organizations seeking to stay competitive and ensure operational efficiency. Choosing the right software solution can make a significant difference in achieving these goals.

Let’s explore how Real Time Intelligence’s eP360 software solution, with its rapid deployment capability, sets them apart as the best choice for meeting your supply chain needs. 


1. Rapid Deployment for Quick-to-Value

Real Time Intelligence’s eP360 software solution offers a unique differentiator in its ability to be rapidly deployed. Unlike traditional implementations that can take months or even years, eP360 can be up and running in as little as a week, reducing the time spent on implementation, configuration, and setup, enabling you to accelerate the deployment process and begin utilizing the solution’s features sooner.  


This accelerated deployment allows organizations to start reaping the benefits of enhanced supply chain visibility and traceability without unnecessary delays. With eP360, your company can quickly gain real-time insights into your supply chain, enabling faster decision-making and response to market opportunities. 


2. Rapid response to changing needs  

In today’s dynamic business environment, supply chains often need to adapt quickly to market demands, new regulations, or unforeseen disruptions. Choosing a software solution that can be rapidly deployed enables you to respond swiftly to these changes, ensuring minimal disruption to your operations.  


3. Cost-effectiveness

Traditional software implementations often involve lengthy deployment cycles, extensive customization, and significant consulting fees. Opting for a solution that can be quickly deployed can reduce costs associated with lengthy implementation projects and ongoing support. It can also help lower the total cost of ownership and deliver a faster return on investment.  


4. Rapid Deployment Means Minimal Disruption to Existing Systems

Implementing a new software solution can have an impact on your existing IT infrastructure, internal systems (such as ERPs, WMS, TMS, etc.), and processes. By selecting a solution that can be quickly deployed and easily integrated, you can minimize disruptions to your current systems, data flows, and operations. This reduces the complexity and potential risks associated with integrating new software into your existing environment.  


5. Agility and Scalability

Choosing a software solution that can be quickly deployed often implies that it is designed to be agile and scalable. This means that the software can easily adapt to changing business requirements and accommodate future growth. It allows you to scale up or down as needed and adjust your supply chain operations without significant delays or additional implementation efforts.  


6. Time and Resource Optimization

With a quick deployment, you can minimize the involvement of internal IT resources and reduce the burden on your organization’s staff. The software vendor typically takes care of the implementation process, allowing your team to focus on core business activities rather than extensive software deployment efforts.  


7. Competitive Advantages from Rapid Deployment

By choosing eP360, you gain a competitive edge in the market. The software’s rapid deployment capability allows you to respond swiftly to market changes, adapt to evolving customer demands, and make data-driven decisions faster than your competitors.
