TOKYO, June 28th, 2017‐PwC Consulting LLC and One Network Enterprises, Inc., announced today that they will begin a digital change support partnership for global supply chain management from July 1st.

PwC Consulting will leverage the Real Time Value Network (RTVN) cloud platform of One Network Enterprises to help enterprises digitize supply chain management (SCM). PwC Consulting has a solid record in SCM.

RTVN is a digital network service that enables SCM participants to share information and collaborate in real time on the cloud for planning, execution, and management functions and information for everything from parts and materials purchasing to production, transportation, and sales. RTVN dramatically improves global control and real-time collaboration between external enterprises. These capabilities previously entailed considerable difficulties, time, and costs with existing system architectures in deployments for each enterprise and region. More than 50,000 companies in North America have adopted RTVN, principally in the defense, automotive, retailing, and logistics sectors.

The SCM digital change support partnership between PwC Consulting and One Network Enterprises aims to help Japanese corporations resolve a range of issues. They include reorganizing their global supply chains, swiftly rolling out SCM systems in emerging nations, and reducing inventories, delivery lead times, and transportation costs.

PwC Consulting will leverage an office network spanning 157 countries to provide the following key services to Japanese companies in the automotive, defense, and other sectors that look to expand their businesses worldwide:

  1. Formulating change concepts (consumer-centric models, digitization, and multi-partner design), and advising on network process designs
  2. Customizing RTVN for companies adopting it
  3. Developing systems to integrate RTVN with the existing systems of companies and their vendors
  4. Consulting on rollouts at overseas business units

Building next-generation supply chains is an increasingly urgent challenge for many companies as the globalization and digitization of their businesses accelerates. PwC Consulting and One Network Enterprises will help corporations transform their SCMs in keeping with their strategies by drawing on solid expertise in that domain, and a global network application platform as a service (aPaaS), and leading-edge technology solutions.
