Del Monte Foods deploys GT Nexus for supply chain visibility
GT Nexus announced today that Del Monte Foods, Inc. has gone live on the GT Nexus platform to improve visibility and collaboration into the extended supply chain. A cloud-based network delivers supplier collaboration to streamline ordering processes, enables inbound-to-plant visibility, and provides a single view to manage global transportation.
Del Monte Foods, Inc. is one of the U.S.’s largest producers, distributors and marketers of premium quality, branded food products including Del Monte, Contadina, College Inn and S&W. The company also produces and distributes private label food products.
“Our enterprise supply chain strategy requires seeing well beyond the walls of our business, into the supply network,” said Mitch Hunter, director of supply chain at Del Monte Foods. “GT Nexus provided timely and effective implementation support in our conversion to SAP. They were able to maintain our coverage during a very tight transition timeline. ”
Operating on a cloud network enables Del Monte to capture a single global view of suppliers, data and movement of goods in a central hub that is viewable across internal departments and external partners.
“Consumer goods manufacturers like Del Monte are laser focused on assuring quality and on-time delivery of products by shoring up their supply chains,” said Sean Feeney, CEO of GT Nexus. “GT Nexus is able to provide a networked environment that fosters visibility into suppliers, shipments and inventory. Del Monte has the tools to know when shipments will arrive at a certain spot in the supply chain and make adjustments, if necessary, to meet customer needs.”
Del Monte went live on GT Nexus in January following a three month implementation. GT Nexus operates the world’s largest cloud-based business network and execution platform for global trade and supply chain management. Over 25,000 businesses across industry verticals, including Adidas Group, Caterpillar, Citi, Columbia Sportswear, DHL, Electrolux, Levi Strauss & Co., Nestlé, Pfizer, and Sears share GT Nexus as their standard, multi-enterprise collaboration platform.
This enables all network participants to operate against a core, real-time and always on set of information across multiple supply chain functions, allowing them to optimise the flow of goods, funds and trade information, from the point of order through final payment.
