Embedded Technology in Logistics



Modern enterprises use a variety of technology solutions, not all of which are the

same. By default, different applications do not interact with each other and require

API integration. These interactions are essential. Experts argue that their lack of integration is one of the main obstacles to effective digitization. However, the API integration is not without its problems. If your business uses software (and you most likely use software for logistics), your customers, partners, and you will ultimately struggle with these integrations. Additionally, remote work during the pandemic has further complicated supply chain integration, leading to disruption and lower ROI.


The solution may be embedded technology. It is an API integration implemented in

enterprise software systems and connected to software products in the technology

stack. This approach enables logistics companies to:

• Ensure the security of sensitive customer data.

• Save money and prevent churn on business-critical deals.

• Improve product reliability and customer satisfaction.

• Make digital systems a meaningful part of your customers' and business partners'

infrastructures.


The main goal of embedded integration is to ensure optimal communication

between components of fragmented IT infrastructures. Businesses today use a

variety of software tools that work in isolation and hinder growth. The same thing

happens on a larger scale in his chain of supply, which involves many interconnected

parties.


• Reliance on slow and time-consuming manual processes.

• Difficulties in exchanging standard electronic format (EDI) business documents

within software systems.

• Onboarding and customizing new customers, partners and third parties his users is

time consuming and complex when integrating applications.

• Limited visibility and tracking of supply chain transactions.

• Problematic, disorganized, or disorganized management of digital tools and

solutions.


If you encounter these issues, you should take a closer look at your embedded

technology. When traditional integration fails, it ensures smooth and efficient

internal processes, helps companies adapt quickly to the logistics market, and

ensures high flexibility and transparency in the supply chain.


Logistics and transportation industries can use built-in integrations to set up robust

and smooth communication processes between multiple internal and external

applications. As a result, the quality of customer service is greatly improved and

business is accelerated.


Embedded technology improves customer communication, customer data

collection and information exchange, and enables the company to offer additional

services to its customers, including data-oriented services. Communication protocols

become more flexible and secure, making business transactions more reliable.

Here's what logistics companies can do with embedded integration technology:


• Easily process and share large amounts of heterogeneous data. This is a

well-known problem in retail logistics. Embedded integration solves the problem

with real-time location tracking and traffic updates, embedded data platforms, RFID

technology, warehouse robotics, and automation. This technology enables logistics

companies to better communicate throughout the supply chain, communicate with

customers, track inventory transfers, and more accurately determine delivery times.


• Provide an improved and seamless customer experience through secure data

exchange. His built-in B2B integration engine helps power behind-the-scenes

workflows. You can onboard and connect partners, share information with customers

without downtime, and quickly receive and process data from the businesses you

serve. You can also quickly implement changes and new business models to better

serve your customers.


• Ensure flexibility and security of communication protocols and transactional

business processes. Built-in integration technologies help you connect, transform,

and consolidate data while meeting stringent service level agreements (SLAs). An

enterprise-class control panel and 24/7 real-time monitoring give you visibility into

the entire process. And with support for various advanced protocols (AS2, OFTP2),

you can directly exchange EDI data and do business seamlessly with companies

around the world.


• Provide additional services to customers and business partners. Logistics and

supply chain companies can focus on collecting, processing, and analyzing critical

data and delivering the information their customers need. This service is especially

valuable in volatile markets.


When it comes to integration, logistics companies and their customers need to keep

their entire digital ecosystem agile, manageable, and grow without the hassle of

scaling. Such results are achievable if several requirements are met.


Enterprises need integrations that provide real-time supply chain visibility,

operational analytics, and the data they need to make decisions. Customers want to

use different formats, protocols, and methods of retrieving information to suit their

personal needs.
