I am once again pleased to announce to our readers that E2open (NASDAQ: EOPN), a provider of strategic, cloud-based software solutions for collaborative execution across global networks, is a continuing Sustaining-level sponsor of this blog in 2013. We are E2open_logo_JPG_highres_125x125pleased that this innovative technology provider has elected to associate itself with the ongoing global supply chain-focused thought leadership being provided by Supply Chain Matters.

E2open provides cloud-based, on-demand software solutions enabling enterprises to procure, manufacture, sell, and distribute products more efficiently through collaborative execution across global trading networks. Collaborative execution is the ability of all partners in a global trading network to work together to continually resolve real or potential problems with the right information, faster, and more profitably. E2open helps brand owners develop a competency in collaborative execution, accelerating success across a number of key business initiatives and supply chain processes, including S&OP, new product introduction, consolidated global procurement, VMI, parts shortage management, risk management, and supply chain control tower.

Brand owners and manufacturers use E2open solutions to gain visibility into and control over their trading networks through the real-time information, integrated business processes, and advanced analytics that E2open provides. E2open customers include Celestica, Cisco, Dell, HGST, IBM, L’Oréal, Land O’Lakes, LSI, Motorola Solutions, Seagate, Vodafone, and many others. E2open is headquartered in Foster City, California with operations worldwide.

During 2012, E2open became a public company trading on the NASDAQ Global Market, a sign of its continued market momentum. In 2013, we anticipate enhanced product development and services announcements as the company expands both its network and vertical industry presence.

If your organization has needs related to overcoming existing systems and communication barriers, unifying suppliers and trading partners with common information, or multi-tier process orchestration, we recommend you place E2open on your short list.
