Global Supply Chain Solutions has been awarded the 'Innovation Award 2013' by the Software-Initiative Germany (SID; www.softwareinitiative.de) in the category "Collaborative Software" in the field of transport logistics and supply chain.
Steffen Rabus, Managing Director of G-SCS, recently accepted the award at the SID evening awards ceremony. In their speech the SID jury emphasized the benefits of the so-called Integrated Control Tower: G-SCS´s program is now able to bring together individual, previously independent applications, leading to a unique complete solution. Through this technologically innovative approach, G-SCS´s customers are able to make their supply chain processes stable, efficient and flexible, and thereby reduce their costs significantly.
In addition to the advanced technology, the claim to cover all relevant logistics requirements, the intuitive and user-friendly interface, the award of the innovation prize was also influenced by the great value for money of the service. "The transport logistics specialist G-SCS has stood not only among experts for quite some time as a particularly innovative company," pointed out the jury in their eulogy. This is illustrated, for example, by the so-called Visibility and Reporting Center of G-SCS, which enables global data transparency of all relevant logistics indicators including detailed information on the agents used.
Through the use of the G-SCS Integrated Control Tower both direct logistics costs (e.g. removal costs) and the costs in organizations and thus the overall costs can be reduced continuously and sustainably. Accordingly, the competitiveness of enterprises will be increased. G-SCS CEO Steffen Rabus was delighted with the award: "We are proud that we were able to convince the jury of our Integrated Control Tower. Our goal has been to generate more efficiency for transport logistics. The award is an important confirmation for us that we are on the right path."
