Impact & Excellence – Inetum

One of the earliest wins is Supply Chain Case Management that gives clear and comprehensive visibility of the supply chain challenges to the customer (e.g., global semiconductor shortage). The solution was taken to market within a couple of months and is on track to deliver multi-million GBP benefits in the first year itself.
