One platform for supply chain
risk awareness and response
How can we help?
Learn how Visual Command Center for Supply Chain can support you as you take command of risk in your supply chain.
Manage supply chain risk in real time with powerful, risk visualization
Today’s complex supply chains are susceptible to man-made disasters and catastrophic
events. Weather, political upheaval, earthquakes, and transportation delays can all expose your
organization to the risk of unnecessary downtime, expediting fees, and failure to meet customer
expectations or service level requirements.
Visual Command Center® for Supply Chain alerts you to potential threats to your supply chain, enables
you to assess their impact, and empowers you to act to mitigate the risk or threat of interruption.

Companies know they need to protect their supply chain, but what
they are challenged with is how to do that efficiently and cost
See your entire supply chain in the context of risk events
With Visual Command Center for Supply Chain, you can map
the nodes and routes that material flows through, from
origin to destination, including suppliers, manufacturing and
distribution points, retail sites, ports, and consolidation
Rather than manage extended supply chains with a
patchwork of logistics providers, gain a single,
comprehensive view of your operations and risk events as
they happen. This visibility provides a competitive
advantage, letting you quickly take advantage of
opportunities, make quicker decisions, and avoid costly
modes of recovery.
Visualize unlimited items and conditions
Supplier locations, transportation lines, depots, transfer points—Visual Command Center for Supply
Chain lets you visualize everything that’s important to your supply chain. Attach pictures, documents,
spreadsheets, and contacts to any supplier or location. Export to Excel or other formats.
See how unfolding events impact your suppliers, and proactively find alternatives. Powerful alerting
warns you early of potential interruptions, slowdowns, or bottlenecks based on a potential threat. Use
the interactive timeline to evaluate an overall risk or focus on significant events.
Locate alternative routes or suppliers quickly
Identify trouble spots, search for alternatives, and make critical decisions. The intuitive interface and the
context of the map let you quickly find alternate routes and suppliers to keep your organization on
Add context and anticipate threats with information about global risk events
Monitor your supply chain in the context of demographics, traffic patterns, road closures, weather
forecasts, and more. Add news feeds to stay abreast of events (strikes, blackouts, coups, border
closings) that could delay shipments. Our agreements with top data aggregators and suppliers let us
provide you with real-time information about conditions that can affect your supply chain.
Reduce inventory carrying costs
Too often, organizations hedge against supply interruptions by carrying more inventory than necessary,
leading to more trucks, bigger warehouses, more shrinkage, more obsolescence, and an increased cost
of capital. With a clear understanding of transportation lead times and supply chain risks, you can
right-size inventory levels.
