An optimized global supply chain is built on two main pillars: Clear communication and quality assurance. Without both of these traits functioning together, a supply chain can break down and be rendered ineffective.
Axia Sourcing helps US-based OEMs maximize the effectiveness of their supply chain management and global parts sourcing by providing transparency to the manufacturing process. Our clients benefit from our unique communication systems, allowing them insight into their projects so they may make informed decisions.
The Value of Supply Chain Transparency
One of the key benefits to supply chain transparency is the building of trust amongst the stakeholders. Trust leads to synergistic collaboration, which in turns leads to more creative and effective supply chain management.
There was a time when the origin of a product wasn’t all that important as long as it met quality standards and arrived on time. As the market continues to evolve toward globalization, stakeholders are more and more concerned with the country of origin for a product, the sources used to create the product, and visibility into the manufacturing process.
This shift in demand has led to the need for greater transparency in manufacturing operations. The companies that would help provide this transparency to their partners have succeeded, while those that continue to operate in a “hidden” environment have lagged behind.
At Axia Sourcing, we offer you a unique and powerful tool that provides transparency to the manufacturing process for your products. Project Insight, an exclusive online portal only available from Axia, provides access 24/7/365 to critical details regarding your manufacturing project.
With Project Insight, you can:
- Have visibility of your project’s information wherever you have internet access
- Save time through quick and effective communication
- Gain better control over projects and supply chain management
- Mitigate risks of lost time and money through improved project management
