Did you know that insurance companies charge you extra if you plan to drive on the roundabout at the Arc De Triomphe? Yes, traffic can become challenging around the arc.

Traffic mayhem is like data transfer challenges in B2B supplychain

Whenever I’m in Paris, I make it a point to have my taxi driver circle the arc at least once. I enjoy watching the traffic orchestration that takes place as vehicles merge into the intimidating traffic. Drivers, policemen, and passengers constantly overcome traffic hurdles and manage to get to their destination quickly and safely.

This image of traffic mayhem comes to my mind when B2B supply chain customers explain their data transfer challenges to me. We all want to get to our destination in a safe, simple, and quick way. Our data in the B2B supply chain deserves the same treatment. It should be transferred in a secure, quick and reliable way.

Seamless B2B Connectivity in Supply Chain

B2B connectivity is a crucial enabler for your supply chain. It enables collaboration and allows you to exchange data with your partner community.

Connectivity is a key element in supply chain operational efficiency and cost reduction. You need a reliable connectivity infrastructure to enable data flow into your organization and to your partners. With the growing number of partners and increasing volume of data it becomes essential to have a robust and efficient file transfer layer as a part of your end-to-end B2B flow.
