Exostar raises the bar for aerospace & defense supply chain collaboration with launch of SCP 2

Exostar, whose cloud-based solutions enable secure, cost-effective business-to-business collaboration, today announced the general availability of Supply Chain Platform (SCP) 2, the most recent version of the company's award-winning, hosted supply chain management service offering. SCP 2 enables organizations of all sizes to optimize business processes and information flows to and from their supply chain partners, achieving improved efficiency from automation and exception management; reduced supplier risk through real-time visibility; and increased supply chain scalability to fuel growth.

With SCP 2, powered by E2open software, customers gain real-time integration into their supply chains for planning, procurement, inventory, and logistics processes. Exostar has drawn upon its decade of experience working with leading Prime Contractors and thousands of suppliers to create SCP 2. The upgraded solution delivers new benefits in the areas of:

• Flexibility – Each customer leverages a dedicated "virtual" instance of SCP that can be tuned to address its specific business requirements, and aligned with other strategic supply chain initiatives and enterprise deployment schedules.

• Best Practices & Speed-to-Value – SCP 2 comes complete with pre-configured templates that capture A&D best practices and lessons learned by Exostar from the company's development and operation of supply chain management solutions for industry leaders. For example, by including workflows for the most common supply chain business processes - such as order management and inventory management - SCP 2 allows customers to take advantage of a 90/10 deployment model: with as much as 90% of a customer's needs available out-of-the-box, the solution can be up and running in as little as 10 weeks.

• Security in the "Cloud" – SCP 2 is fully integrated with Exostar's groundbreaking Managed Access Gateway (MAG) service offering. MAG's market-leading identity assurance and access management technology enables customers to capture the advantages of the cloud without concern that their intellectual property will be compromised by unauthorized users, regardless of how large their supplier and partner communities become. MAG's Enterprise Access Gateway option paves the way for single sign-on access to SCP 2 from the local desktop, optimizing the user experience. The proven Exostar environment delivers these benefits, along with robust service level agreements and connectivity to a global network of over 70,000 firms.

"Manufacturers of all sizes are being asked to do more with less, at precisely the same time supply-side risk and complexity is rising," said Peter Scott, Exostar's Vice President of Supply Chain Solutions. "Our cloud-based delivery model and SCP 2's out-of-the-box features and performance empower manufacturers to overcome these hurdles while providing a clear return on investment. Now, we offer a solution with the flexibility and scalability large companies demand, along with the accessibility small- and medium-sized businesses will find compelling."
