Collaboration for manufacturers

Manufacturers who collaborate with supply chain partners could build a stronger position in a competitive market. Telstra has the tools you need to make it happen.

Collaboration for manufacturers

In last month’s IN:SIGHT we looked at the global manufacturing trend towards greater collaboration in the supply chain, as identified by US based magazine Industry Week. This trend was also recently discussed in industry blog Retail Touchpoints, which noted that supplier-retailer collaboration would be greatly aided by the parties building their collaboration processes around simple and shared information platforms.

Telstra’s internet telephony solution TIPT – Cloud Collaboration offers a great set of technologies to link businesses and teams. It brings voice, data and video services together on one platform, simplifying supplier-retailer communications in any manufacturing business and opening up new opportunities for collaboration.

Video conferencing, for example, allows team members to meet customers and supply chain partners face-to-face via a desktop or mobile device. TIPT – Cloud Collaboration is also great if your business is integrated vertically. For example, if you need multiple parties to share data about transport facilities and connect, both in the office and on the road.

From a management perspective, TIPT – Cloud Collaboration is cost effective and requires little IT expertise. It’s a fully managed and hosted service delivered across the Telstra Next IP network, so you can avoid an expensive investment in your own networking infrastructure.

Shared information, transparency and trust are the vital ingredients for a value-driven, integrated supply chain. TIPT – Cloud Collaboration helps give your manufacturing business the right tools to support more personal contact with partners, to help you be proactive, and to help you position your company to respond to a changing market.


In summary
  • There is a global trend by manufacturers towards more collaboration in the supply chain.
  • TIPT – Cloud Collaboration is a convergence of voice, data and video services that simplifies supplier-retailer communications and creates collaboration opportunities.
  • Tools such as video conferencing allow more face-to-face contact with partners, which is an excellent way to build trust and transparency.
