Your business motivations


Companies together with their supply chains are called to new sustainability challenges. The new emerging complexity involves the analysis of multiple factors such as the environmental, energy and social impact supported by long-term profitability. It is clear that these new challenges can only be overcome thanks to a new digital-based supply chain governance. XTAP was born for this.


In order to solve environmental challenges, companies are grappling with a great change that requires a strong attention to the use of all the resources involved and to the reduction of any waste along the entire product life cycle, from design to its disposal (Life Cycle Assessment).


Supply Chain management increases in complexity as the factors that induce adverse events increase; it requires the company to react promptly and quickly to minimize the effects of induced instability. The real-time visibility of the supply chain phenomena, obtained with XTAP, is a necessary condition and enables a resilient management.


The increasingly rich market in offers means that the consumer has to face more sophisticated and complex choices; plus, an increasing sensitivity is added to quality, environment, safety and sustainability and strong changes in consumer attitudes. Over 70% of the companies involved in the supply chains for the production of goods are actively proposing new consumption models, both linked to the purchase experience of the single product, and linked to the introduction of new services associated with the product. With XTAP the final consumer can have the visibility of the entire supply chain.


Companies have a growing need to manage operational efficiency within the supply chain in order to achieve higher levels of competitiveness in collaboration with their partners (CCC). XTAP offers the possibility of tracking goods and making supply chain operations transparent within the community of partners who wish to achieve greater operational efficiency together.


Also, thanks to digital commerce, markets are expanding on a global scale. This implies an opportunity and a need at the same time to be present and therefore to adopt a strategy, methods and tools to be competitive in the global digital village. A digital management model requires interoperability that can only be achieved by adopting a standard that can be shared on a global scale. XTAP is compliant with GS1 global standards.


For companies oriented to develop the product-service paradigm in the short-medium term to increase their competitive differential, the Supply Chain digital transformation enables new important possibilities. Thanks to the digital supply chain manager characteristics based on collaboration and process transparency, XTAP is the infrastructure suitable for creating servitization services between the supplier and the user.
