Challenges for the industry of tomorrow
Growing customer expectations and demand is leading to highly complex supply chains to source and procure goods and services. Integrating and bringing together different trading partners/entities is one such complexity. In any B2B integration, translation is an integral part. Trading partners or third party suppliers need to be quickly on-boarded with respect to latest technology and integrated with the retailers.
Crafting the mapping document to integrate different trading partners/entities is currently a challenging process. Manual mapping of data files with lengthy, hierarchical and complex structures is tedious, time consuming, error prone and constitutes up to 40% of the integration effort. MappIn addresses this challenge and makes the process a lot more efficient.
