INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES: THE KEYS TO OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE

TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION, A PRIORITY AT BOLLORÉ LOGISTICS

​​​​​​​​​​​​​ 

Visibility, aid to decision-making and full control of the supply chain

Bolloré Logistics' information system offers customers full visibility and total control of the supply chain. Bolloré Logistics integrates information flows from all players in the supply chain (carriers, customers and suppliers, customs, etc.) for faster and more flexible management and decision-making. Performance analysis and indicators at every stage ensure the continuous improvement of customer supply chains from start to finish.

A network of experts in information technologies and business processes coordinate the design and implementation of dedicated solutions. 

Operational information is then shared, be it by simple access via a smartphone or through the development of Interfacing between systems.

SQUARE is also used for inventory management (receipt, quality control, cross dock, multi-site), order preparation (wave management, pick & pack, distribution) and reverse logistics. Finally, this tool encompasses the processing of value-added services such as labelling and kitting.

PRISM: global supply chain management

PRISM offers "end-to-end" visibility by integrating transport and warehousing data into a single source system. Its planning and alert management functions, and the automatic updating of pre-defined scenarios in the event of a problem gives users a genuinely proactive handle on the management of operations. By synchronising 3PL providers (aggregation of data, automated processes and follow-up of transport orders), customers can monitor their entire provider network from start to finish. A collaborative platform from supplier to final customer via a single portal, PRISM can also be used for quality control and the management of orders and repair cycles​​.
