AUSTIN, TX: E2open, a specialist in Supply chain management, has announced the latest product release for the supply chain operations. Its operating network now provides extended options for a seamless workflow and workflow management like never before. It offers improvements to the flexible rules based constrained planning, and broader network reach to include long-tail partners.

Operating since 2000, the company is a provider of cloud-based, on-demand software solutions enabling enterprises to procure, manufacture, sell, and distribute products more efficiently through collaborative planning and execution, across global trading networks.

The new E2open 16.2 release includes:

Easier on-boarding for long-tail partners - E2open's Long Tail Partner Collaboration solution is an efficient, low-cost enabler for easily on-boarding trading partners onto the company’s collaboration platform through an interactive user interface. E2open offers better long-tail collaboration options in its upcoming version 16.3 with the goal of enabling enterprises to coordinate procurement processes and metrics across their supplier base.

Greater configurability of workflows - The company’s manufacturing collaboration solutions have become more flexible with better workflow management capabilities. It allows greater compatibility in the management of new products introductions, engineering change orders and quality collaboration processes.

Constraint-based planning now transferred to push planning - With this release, customers of E2open’s priority-driven supply planning solution have the option to enable stock to be pushed downstream from capacity and storage-space locations —providing better representation of real-life constraints; incorporating them into the rules-based planning process.

"E2open's founding vision 15 years ago was to bring the 'network effect' to multi-enterprise supply chains, with capabilities that allow trading partners to transact, collaborate, and plan together," saysMichael Farlekas, CEO, E2open. "We continue to invest significantly in our products and network. This release represents a step-change in onboarding to ensure the network grows even stronger over time, with partners of all shapes and sizes."
