Edisoft Bets on Big Data to Add Efficiency to Supply Chain

Edisoft, a Smart Process Supply Chain platform based in Toronto, has bigger bets on big data to add efficiency for various supply chain processes. It says that when visibility solutions made available for the first time, on-time performance was considered as the KPI or Key Performance Indicator. Every carrier, irrespective of ocean or air, were evaluated by on-time performance. Today, the trend is changing due to the additional data available in the form of GPS data sets, real-time tracking, IoT, and other technology options through mobile solutions. Edsoft confirms that depending only on single KPI is no longer considered as a smart choice (Contact).


The platform confirms that KPI is mostly decided by the metrics across trading partners and functions without a narrowed focus on only one particular carrier. In the recent years, the customers started evaluating the outcome of the end-to-end transporting process. Interestingly, each customer evaluates multiple data sets, and this is where big data started playing a larger role in the supply chain process. While it can add efficiency to the supply chain, Edisoft alarms the need of a complete, timely, and accurate data from various parties. It should also reflect the needs of changing time zones and locations. However, it is concluded that big data adds agility, compliance, better predictability, and cost-efficiency to the supply chain.


Edisoft was founded in the year 1995 in Canada, and the supply chain software firm has large customer-base around the world (https://3pl-technology.logisticstechoutlook.com/vendor/edisoft-optimizing-the-endtoend-3pl-workflow-cid-128-mid-23.html).
