Amber Road’s (NYSE: AMBR) mission is to dramatically transform the way companies conduct global trade. As a leading provider of cloud-based global trade management (GTM) software, trade content and training, we help companies all over the world create value through their global supply chain by improving margins, achieving greater agility and lowering risk. We do this by creating a digital model of the global supply chain that enables collaboration between buyers, sellers and logistics companies. We replace manual and outdated processes with comprehensive automation for global trade activities, including sourcing, supplier management, production tracking, transportation management, supply chain visibility, import and export compliance, and duty management. We provide rich data analytics to uncover areas for optimization and deliver a platform that is responsive and flexible to adapt to the ever-changing nature of global trade.
Global Trade Management today is more complex than ever, and constantly changing. Developing a digital supply chain is more than just a money saver; it can create competitive advantages and increase growth. Managing successful trading party relationships requires a great deal of collaboration. Given the added complexity of global vs. domestic shipments — different languages and time zones, longer lead times, complex trade regulations — collaborating with foreign suppliers is even more difficult and more important.
Companies must transform the way they do business and take the leap into making their supply chains digital, otherwise, they will be left behind.
Amber Road helps companies transform their global supply chain, to improve margins, enable agility, and reduce risk. We increase operational efficiency, reduce direct costs, and create a faster, leaner, more agile supply chain. We streamline the global supply chain through digitization, which allows for collaboration, automation, analytics and flexibility.
