In a multi-tier distribution network goods are constantly on the move, through trade or transfer, from one channel partner to another. Many a time it becomes difficult to track the movement of goods, as they are passed down, from supplier to consumer, making it essential to incorporate a system by which channel partners can keep track, of multi-degree movements in real-time, to enhance operational efficiency.
The eXchange at any given moment can attain real-time perspective of not only a product's current location but also maps shift in ownership, to avoid any confusion that may lead to delays in order fulfilment, by tagging each product with meta information to help generate instant access. Of course, not every movement of goods is ideally a sale, hence to distinguish between trade and mere transfer, the eXchange tags a principal around every stock movement, to define its ownership.
Every individual piece of product is given a unique identification (UID), which helps to zero in on the current location no matter the custody, as goods move from point A to B, B to C, and C to D, as long as A has ownership of the goods, he has real-time visibility over them.
