Reliance on increasing import of goods manufactured offshore requires end-to-end visibility of the physical and financial supply chain. Yet, as Aankhen sees it, existing visibility solutions are focused on the wrong end of the financial and physical supply chain. Aankhen offers a physical supply chain visibility solution using RFID and GPS technologies to create real-time visibility into where your inventory or assets are in the world exposing blind spots not covered by EDI transactions. Spend management in financial supply chains is an after-the-fact backward-looking process. Aankhen enables companies to determine what they should be spending so that they can plan and execute to a financial strategy, particularly when they face renegotiations in light of rising fuel costs and a falling dollar. Aankhen offers automated "Shouldbe Cost" computation solutions that provide financial visibility and insight to "total cost of procurement" at a part level, influencing sourcing decisions, logistics and working capital management.
