KeyTone and arviem unveil strategic partnership to deliver trade monitoring and management services for global supply chain visibility

Cupertino, CA, February 09, 2011: KeyTone Technologies, a recognized leader in RFID and other sensor-based solutions, announced today its strategic partnership with arviem to deliver ”in-transit” trade monitoring and management services to Fortune 1000 companies around the globe. The partnership has resulted in deploying a managed service offering targeted at companies engaged in global trade transactions worldwide. This service offering is now supported by the release of a new comprehensive software platform to enable easy web based monitoring, analytics and reporting.

Managing logistics operations for a global supply chain is challenging. The ability to track, trace, monitor and respond to events throughout the transit of goods would make it much easier. Trying to manage a global supply chain without knowing exactly where cargo is located, its condition, who has custody of it, or when events occur, is experiencing the supply chain – not managing it. Simply stated, you can’t manage what you don’t know.

“Our focus as a company is ‘ensuring visibility and delivering results’. Tracking cargo while in-transit and ensuring visibility through to its destination is of critical importance in successfully managing the supply chain. Our relationship with arviem will open new opportunities for KeyTone in this valuable market” said Edwin Winder, EVP KeyTone. “This service is now available to all who want its benefits and the information can easily be integrated to existing supply chain systems of record. ”

“Real time visibility becomes a key competitive advantage. Applying technology to enhance global supply chain management based on visibility and content monitoring is the core of arviem's business” said Stefan Reidy, CEO of arviem. “Our KeyTone powered solution and service puts this capability within the reach of all companies. The partnership with KeyTone has already gained momentum with successful validations at major companies in the consumer products, chemical and pharmaceutical industries and we are looking to gain an increasing market share in this emerging area of focus.”

The Vicious Cycle of Supply-Chain Innovation - Trapped Between Inflation and Interest Rates

  Although headline inflation has fallen in most economies in recent months, core inflation remains stubbornly high. During times of high inflation, the cost of goods and services often increases rapidly, putting a strain on a business's finances. As a result, many business leaders may focus on cost management strategies, such as reducing expenses and cutting back on investments, to maintain profitability. Unfortunately, this can make it challenging to prioritize supply chain optimization. Supply chain optimization can be a highly effective strategy to alleviate the impact of high inflation. However, it is crucial to understand that supply chain optimization can be a highly effective strategy, especially during times of high inflation, and can help alleviate the impact of high inflation on their finances. By streamlining and improving the efficiency of supply chain processes, businesses can achieve long-term cost savings and improved profitability. Optimizing the supply chain can h

Spurious Correlations in Supply Chain Management - sneakier than you think!

  The supply chain management landscape has undergone a massive transformation recently, rendering the traditional "fax" approach obsolete. In light of this, companies are gravitating towards digital solutions, which not only streamline the entire process but also help sustain market competitiveness. The old-school methods of communication channels were heavily reliant on paper, resulting in significant inefficiencies, errors, and time delays, which were avoided with the implementation of automated solutions such as email, EDI, and other digital communication channels. As the world of technology continues to evolve, more efficient and innovative solutions are constantly emerging, helping businesses remain competitive and future-proof in their respective industries. The realm of digitalization in supply chain management extends far beyond the realms of emails or EDI. Exploring the frontiers of predictive decision support is the key to unlocking immense potential and gaining a

Hello, my fellow financial freedom fighters!

Ahoy, captains of industry! Today, we embark on a journey through the stormy waters of trade financing! Supply Chain Management is hot. Supply Chain Visibility is even more alluring. Nearly daily, you can read articles or join webinars about how important visibility has become in managing cargo worldwide. However! It's not just about moving physical goods from one place to another; it's also about the financial transactions that make that trade possible. Without trade finance, we wouldn't have a global economy. Trade finance is the backbone of the worldwide economy. It links people, businesses, and countries in a web of trust and credit. But there's a problem: The World Trade Organization estimates that US$ 2-5 trillion in trade finance capacity is needed to "just" enable a rapid recovery from the consequences of the pandemic. And there is a second problem: 1 in 2 SMEs don't receive the trade financing they need. This means they also lack the money to inve
