Multi-enterprise information tower to facilitate exchange of interoperable commerce, inventory, logistics, and other supply chain data.
TraceLink Inc., a digital network platform company, has launched its multi-enterprise Information network tower (MINT) solution, which uses the integration capabilities of its Opus platform and TraceLink network. MINT is designed to help supply chain participants gain full visibility with a supply network through the exchange of interoperable commerce, inventory, logistics, and other supply chain data.
The company says rapid trade partner onboarding is possible through a “business-to-network integrate-once” approach for sharing timely, important business information necessary to prevent supply disruptions and optimize key performance metrics.
TraceLink says MINT is designed to be highly flexible and extensible. For example, companies may start with a simple on-ramp through MINT for Commerce that provides the exchange of purchase orders, invoices, and advance ship notices with contract manufacturers or suppliers, and then expand their digital network footprint by layering on new transactions such as inventory, forecasting, demand, production planning, and finance as needs require.
The platform was unveiled at the LogiPharma life sciences supply chain conference in Lyon, France.
