Zencargo offers virtual offices

[ September 28, 2018   //   ]

Digital forwarder Zencargo has launched a procurement service for retailers based on virtual local offices. It provides procurement teams with a local presence, close to their suppliers, enabling businesses to get the level of detail that would normally require a remote team. They use automated messaging and artificial intelligence to communicate with suppliers and obtaining regular production updates. The system flags issues so teams can review problems before they arise and focus efforts on minimising disturbances. Currently supply chain teams manage their suppliers through emails, phone calls and shared spreadsheets.
