i+solutions, an independent non-profit organisation specialising in pharmaceutical supply chain management for developing countries, was in need of a system to monitor their supply chain and procurement. They partnered with BDO Digital to implement the innovative Globis software in order to increase the shipping efficiency between different stakeholders.

Aim of the project
To further monitor their supply chain and procurement, they partnered with BDO Digital. The aim of the project is to provide end-to-end visibility of the supply chain, in order to efficiently ship different goods (time and cost) between pick-up point and place of delivery. Depending on the incoterms used, this could be the supplier, the developing country, the port, ...
The project scope was defined as follows:
- Report KPI’s to customers.
- Manage virtual warehouses.
- Track and enforce the approval process.
During this project, we achieved the following results:
- End-to-end supply chain visibility within 1 central platform - 1 source of truth – from quote to execution.
- Centralised inventory management over all i+solutions’ warehouses worldwide
- Audit trail and solid milestone/KPI reporting
“The 3-party cooperation between Globis, BDO and i+solutions resulted in a successful implementation in a short timeframe. We are very pleased with the professional services provided by both Globis and BDO.”
