How OpenText Business Network supports today’s manufacturing industry

During my eleven years at OpenText (and GXS before 2014) I have had the opportunity to meet with many different manufacturing companies. From automotive companies to high tech semi-conductor manufacturers, from consumer product goods companies to steel products manufacturers. All of these companies have different levels of complexity across their respective supply chains but over the past 12 months they have had to embrace new technologies as part of digital transformation strategies and the increasingly consumer driven nature of today’s manufacturing industry. From being able to manufacture products almost anywhere in the world to supporting manufacturers as they undertake extensive restructuring across their end to end supply chain, OpenText™ Business Network is here to help these companies streamline and digitize their end to end supply chains.

OpenText Business Network helps connect some of the world’s largest manufacturing companies to their global supply chains. Every year I compare our customer list to industry reports such as the Fortune 500 Manufacturers to try and understand our presence in the industry. The following statistics speak for themselves:Business Network in Manufacturing

From helping manufacturers onboard trading partners in emerging markets, support mergers and acquisitions or divestiture initiatives, integrating to back-office systems such as ERPs or simply enabling manufacturers to adhere to regional electronic invoicing compliance regulations, Business Network can help simplify the B2B integration challenges of today’s manufacturing companies.
