When external risk threatens your operations or supply chain, the more time you have to anticipate the threat, the more options you have to make plans to mitigate or even avoid the disruption. While not all events can be averted, advanced planning can help you recover faster and return to normal.
For businesses, critical event management is no longer a nice to have. Having an integrated picture of external threats and events overlaid with an organization’s people, assets and supply routes, along with other contextual information to enable timely assessment and operational response is mandatory in today’s global economy.

It’s impossible to eliminate risk from your supply chain, but organizations can take steps to minimize exposure to risk and even eliminate the impact of risk events with careful planning, tools, and processes to anticipate and manage risk more effectively.
A top-ten global provider of transportation and logistics solutions had their supply chain operators manually checking multiple sites to determine whether border crossing wait times would cause delays for customer shipments. The provider has 50,000 customers over 30 countries and 1,500 locations of their own to manage. By moving to one platform for supply chain risk management, they were able to automate delay alerts and see them in real-time, under one pane of glass.
When there is an event like Hurricane Irma, for us to be able to determine which properties would be impacted earlier allowed us to evacuate those properties but also prepare to reopen those properties faster after the storm passed.
