If your view of the Supply Chain is limited to 2D, i.e. just the 1st and 2nd parties of the Buyer and Seller then take a moment to think in 3D. (Special glasses not required.) Reflect on how the third dimension of "3rd parties" is potentially involved in moving many transactions along from initial order to ultimate delivery, and even beyond.
"3rd parties" could be Toll Manufacturers, Transportation Providers or Storage Warehouses. They could also be Shipment Surveyors, Product Inspectors, Application Consultants or Documentation Brokers. Once you begin to "Think in 3D," it's quite likely that you will come up with more.
AgGateway has, and will continue to, promote connectivity between 1st and 2nd parties. However, the time may have come to consider addressing 3rd Party Connectivity. In keeping with AgGateway's Mission to "... promote, enable, and expand eBusiness in Agriculture", you - or any interested party from your company, are invited to a "Think In 3D Webinar". The webinar will present the special case for the connectivity needs of 3rd parties, offer a solution architecture to meet those needs and explore possible applications of that solution to the real world.
The webinar will require about 45 minutes of your time. The webinar will be held Oct. 19 at 3:00 p.m. EDT and Oct. 26 at 3:00 p.m. EDT. If all webinars are filled, more will be scheduled to allow everyone who wants to hear about this topic an opportunity to attend.
Each webinar is limited to 14 attendees, so registration is required.
