Consumer needs are evolving

Consumers are more conscious and care about the provenance of the products they buy. Blockchain brings full visibility in the process, contributing to a positive brand experience, more trust in the brand, and a stronger feeling of engagement.

Supply processes are inefficient

Typical challenges are visibility shortages, traceability breaches, no real time updates, paperwork.... Blockchain brings substantial savings on time and money through transparent and streamlined processes, better information sharing and forecasting, and reduced risk of mistakes.

Sustainability becomes a priority

Every company needs to rethink how they operate in the ecological, social, and economic environment. Blockchain contributes to sustainability goals through auditable, non-disputable, and transparent data to follow up on your key metrics.

Explore strategic insights and use cases that solve these challenges.

There are a number of Industry 4.0 technologies that are transforming consumer goods supply chain management. From IoT to AI to Blockchain and DLT. But before you dive into the new supply chain frameworks, it’s important to realise that this is more than a technical implementation. Successful transformation also requires a change in mindset. You need to understand and accept that traditional models are falling short of customer expectations. Customers expect a fully traceable and sustainable supply chain. Early adopters have already proven that these different models have a direct impact on revenue and cost optimization. You can save yourself a lot of time and frustration by incorporating the learnings of these early adopters into your blockchain supported digital transformation. Step one? Read this minibook.
