LET’S MAKE A TRADE

OCEAN is committed to helping businesses around the world succeed. Our two main supply chain programs include Open Credit & Stock and Release.


CUTTING EDGE DIGITAL SUPPLY CHAINS

Digital supply chains can help companies create full transparency into every stage of the supply chain, streamline business processes, and bring clarity to the finance function. In 2016, analysts at McKinsey articulated the idea of a next-generation digital supply chain, called Supply Chain 4.0. Digital twins are used tactically to visualize physical supply chains and provide diagnostic, analytical and feedback capabilities.

They can be used to pivot, reroute or reallocate finances in the supply chain. Data quality cannot be overstated, nor can the need for cross-checking, comparing and aggregating data from a variety of reliable sources. Advanced analytics interprets intelligence from all types of data sets, both structural and dynamic. Modern-day technological tools are essential for survival and growth. They help businesses maintain operations, even grow, in the face of adversity.
