OIA Global, a worldwide logistics, packaging and material sourcing provider, announced the global launch of OIA Connect, the latest addition to its suite of automated supply chain visibility and decision support tools.
Claus Rasmussen, OIA’s managing director of Europe and the Middle East, noted that customers are manufacturing and shipping to all parts of the world, and they must be able to share critical information in many technical environments. Some require electronic links directly into their own tracking and ERP systems via EDI and XML. Others are seeking PC- or web-based solutions, and OIA must be able to quickly and easily interface in all environments.
According to Rasmussen, OIA Connect enables customers to identify and report on their supply chain progress, share summary reporting with customers and suppliers, and quickly collaborate to take corrective action when schedules are not met. It is the latest cloud-based technology solution available from the company.
Customer validation and launch in Europe and the Americas was completed in spring 2018, and more than a dozen customers are now in production. Currently, roll-out for Asia is in progress.
With more than 1,200 professionals, and 65 owned offices in 28 nations, OIA designs innovative solutions that optimize supply chains worldwide. OIA is privately owned by Indianapolis-based LDI Ltd.
