- Nulogy provides multi-enterprise supply chain solutions for the supply ecosystem and digitally enables brands to manage their supplier ecosystems as actual networks, rather than linear chains. Could you explain how you can help organizations get the most out of their supply chain partnerships?
Nulogy accelerates supply chain response by enabling dynamic collaboration and bi-directional visibility between brands and their contract packaging and manufacturing suppliers using real-time production floor data. In a nutshell, we don’t just break down silos across functions or within an enterprise but rather between supply ecosystem partners. This unlocks the data needed to uncover insights and provides the tools required to improve both decision-making and execution, creating the foundation needed to build an agile and resilient supply chain.
- What differentiates Nulogy from other supply-chain software vendors?
We believe we are the only solution provider that has been strongly focused on providing value to both sides of the supply chain network, eg both the brands and their supply base.
- Nulogy will make a new product announcement at the Pack Expo in Chicago on October 23-26. Could give us some hints about the new product innovation and its benefits for your customers?
If COVID taught us nothing else, it highlighted the critical need for continued investment in data and analytics. While many companies have invested in enterprise systems such as ERP or WMS, only a small handful have truly reviewed the need for multi-party data, analysis, and orchestration. This is an area of investment for Nulogy and we’ll be making an announcement on a new product to support this critical supply chain need.
- What are the latest trends in the contract manufacturing/packaging supply chain software market?
Supply chain continues to be top of mind across all manufacturing industries including packaging with ongoing product availability issues due to material shortages, rising prices from inflation, rolling labor shortages, increasing climate impacts/disruptions, and expanding geo-political conflict. All of this is driving toward increased investment in both solutions that provide visibility into the current state of the supply chain but also better collaboration and orchestration tools.
We see companies in this space progressing beyond enterprise-oriented investments and into the multi-enterprise space where they are really focusing on improving communication and ensuring shared value through joint decision-making between themselves and their trading partners.
- Could you tell us about your future growth strategies at Nulogy?
We will continue to be a multi-enterprise leader focused on improving the upstream side of the supply chain and delivering shared value to manufacturers and their suppliers. We hope you will stay tuned as we have investments in flight to enhance our bi-directional visibility, collaboration, and multi-echelon synchronization – many exciting announcements in the coming months!
