GTM solutions tame the beast, allowing organizations to respond quickly and accurately while making better sourcing decisions.

Global Trade Management (GTM) systems simplify the complexities of the global supply chain, improving efficiency and boosting savings, according to the new Global Trade Management Technology white paper by Tompkins Associates.

“Speed, visibility, and flexibility can significantly impact each link of the supply chain,” says Matt Wilkerson, Supply Chain Information Technology expert at Tompkins Associates and co-author of the white paper. “GTM solutions tame the beast, allowing organizations to respond quickly and accurately while making better sourcing decisions.”

When optimizing the entire supply chain, GTM and Supply Chain Event Management (SCEM) applications provide real-time collaboration tools that address many of the complexities and challenges. The functionality of these tools can address:

  •     Export management,
  •     Visibility,
  •     Event management,
  •     Sourcing,
  •     Transportation management, and
  •     Financial trade management.

“Technically speaking, openness and flexibility of systems integration architecture have resulted in a marketplace that is not nearly as intimidating as it once was,” Wilkerson adds.
