A lively conversation in the spring of 2011 led to the founding of SCM Globe. We saw how supply chain operations modeling, agile software development, and user interface design based on ideas from massively multiplayer online games (MMOs) could be combined to create a supply chain simulation and collaboration platform nobody had seen before.
We rolled out our first version in the fall of 2011 and learned there was an immediate opportunity in working with academic and training organizations that want to use simulations to attract and engage students. Then we began working with supply chain professionals who want to model, simulate and improve real supply chains. The features and user interface of SCM Globe have been continuously enhanced and upgraded since then based on feedback from instructors, students, and supply chain professionals around the world who use our application.
In the last few years we’ve seen needs in disaster response and humanitarian operations that SCM Globe can meet. Demands on organizations in this area will continue to grow, and present technology and ways of operating will not keep up. Our technology and supply chain planning procedures offer the opportunity to transform the essential operations used for delivering aid and helping people rebuild after disasters have passed.
To learn more, we can schedule a 45 minute web demo. Tell us about your plans, and we’ll show you how SCM Globe could help.
