We already have significant numbers of new users at every level of the supply chain, using the service to give their business enhanced decision-making capabilities.”
The supply chain of firms can be transformed, according to the company, with the help of Agility, by ensuring more profitable produce, and higher quality produce for suppliers.
“Every step of the supply chain benefits,” explains Mr Evans. “Agility makes it possible to anticipate and plan for major decisions that affect every business. Our fully integrated system makes sense of data from all sources whether generated by the company, its suppliers, customers or external third parties.”
The Agility platform brings together global reach in big data experience of the RELX Group and integration pedigree of F4F, now part of Proagrica.
