Company Overview

Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) company based in Southeast Asia that has a presence in 100 countries worldwide.

Problem Statement

Procurement from overseas markets involves several challenges must be addressed. One of the main issues is poor collaboration and lack of standardization between internal business functions, such as purchasing, manufacturing, and finance.

Another challenge is the manual and non-standardized sourcing process involving various data/document exchanges. There is also poor collaboration and coordination with suppliers and their ecosystem. Lack of supply chain visibility, manual invoice processing, and reconciliation are some of the other challenges. 


The solution from #dltledgers used the immutable ledger, multi-party authentication, and easy network creation to streamline the procurement process involving overseas importation.

Real-time notifications are provided to prevent any shipment delays and enhance collaboration among multiple parties across different geographies. The use of digital assets on the distributed ledger enables the enforcement of risk-free contracts across multiple suppliers/vendors.

The shared ledger also provides data-driven visibility for proactive decision-making. Overall, this solution offers improved user-efficiency and end-user experience for procurement processes.

We are convinced of the platform’s ability to deliver fully automated, end-to-end visibility, connected to multiple business partners, giving real-time updates of our supplier networks; with zero impact to our legacy ERP​.”
