Despite recent advances in global commerce, companies still struggle to fully command this type of environment to drive the values promised. Blinco Systems Inc. believes the next wave of global commerce solutions will enable the shipper or logistics provider to drive exceptional competitive advantage by leveraging a true command and control capability over the organization's extended global commerce network. Innovations in global commerce management will tightly integrate and synchronize visualization, collaboration and execution capabilities in order that organizations can achieve full command and control of their global activities.

To that end, Blinco created 3rdwave GCM, which is an integrated global execution platform synchronized with a global data repository. Clients are able to unify their view and quickly respond as events unfold to optimize, manage and leverage their businesses. They also have the capability to augment their core 3rdwave GCM solutions with integrated visualization (3rdwave Reporting tools or 3rd party BI tools) and web 2.0 collaboration (3rdwave CS) capabilities.

The next wave of supply chain innovation must help manufacturers in standardizing business processes, linking global operations, the need to improve customer service, and growing their business while meeting cost reduction pressures, believes Australian solution provider Bowen & Groves. Manufacturers must have technology systems that allow them to be flexible and fast and have all information at their fingertips in an instant, and systems that can be customized to meet their unique business processes in order for them to maintain their competitive edge. Bowen & Groves says its enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution is targeted at small and midsize businesses that require "total integration and automation from quoting through invoicing."

It is no longer possible to implement a supply chain management system and let it run on autopilot. Bristlecone's next-wave supply chain services are all aimed at keeping supply chains agile, responsive to current demands and environments, and acting to ensure that companies are ahead of the curve and their competitors.

One such service is its Supply Chain Risk Assessment and Management, which is designed to help companies manage and mitigate risk within their current supply chain management processes. Additionally, its Spend Visibility Service helps corporate procurement organizations address run-away spending by enabling a better understanding of procurement spend, which can be used to drive supply base rationalization.
