The defense and aerospace industries share many characteristics, one of the most significant being their complex global supply chains. Managing these, with customers who may be spread all over the world with highly variable requirements is a major challenge. However, having the physical infrastructure in place to deliver what the end-user needs is only part of the story – the organizational tools that make it operate are just as important.

A cloud-based B2B ecommerce solution can allow your customers and internal teams to operate with vastly improved efficiency, round-the-clock operation, even use of ‘smart’ equipment for real time diagnostics. Orders can be made from anywhere with an easy buying process and flexible delivery options.

THE CHALLENGE – Aerospace and defense organizations are responsible for hundred, or thousands of complex systems, with millions of items associated with them all. Having a system that can manage large numbers of items quickly and accurately while maintaining a user-friendly design to find things easily is a major challenge.

Cloudfy was designed from the outset to facilitate transactions like these, between organizational users and their suppliers.
