Balta Group selects Nallian’s cloud-based supply chain solution

Keerbergen, Belgium – September 19, 2013 – Nallian, an innovative provider of cloud-based supply chain collaboration services, announced today that Balta Group selected Nallian to integrate with its global trading partners and share real-time information using Nallian’s cloud-based supply chain solution. Nallian connects supply chain stakeholders in the cloud to allow companies to collaborate effectively across the supply chain. Nallian was founded in 2012 by Jean Verheyen. Early-stage investors of Nallian include thought leaders and seasoned entrepreneurs Peter Hinssen, Jan De Schepper and Luc Osselaer.
 
As one of the leading producers of floor coverings in Europe with 95% of its products exported to over 100 countries throughout the world, Balta Group manages a highly complex international supply chain with hundreds of trading partners. Balta’s dynamic company structure and a rapidly growing international network of trading partners, urged the company to find a solution that would support easy and fast on-boarding of new trading partners and increase business agility. The Nallian solution enables Balta to easily and quickly integrate with 200 trading partners, manage all types of data in real-time and automate cross-company processes.

In the past, Balta took different initiatives to integrate with its trading partners but the complexity and costs forced the company to explore a new approach. After a comprehensive selection process to evaluate potential partners, Nallian was selected. The Nallian solution proved to offer an immediate and significant return on investment and the solution enables Balta to realize its strategic objectives.
With Nallian’s cloud-based solution, Balta expects to save a considerable amount on integration costs. In addition, Balta will save recurring costs on maintenance; an effort no longer required when using Nallian’s cloud-based solution which is centrally managed. In addition, using a private data cloud, Balta and its trading partners all integrate their systems into one single virtual data source, offering higher data quality at all times and ensuring a consistent adoption of accurate data across the supply chain.

Efficiently managing supply chain processes and complex relationships with multiple partners is vital to our performance and customer service,” comments Bart Desloover, Group ICT-Manager Balta Industries. “With Nallian, the integration time to connect with new trading partners is reduced from months to minutes, independent of the IT-maturity, preferences and back-end systems of our trading partners. This results in improved cost structure and significantly increases our business agility.

“We look forward to working with Balta Group to implement our cost effective and highly productive supply chain collaboration solution. The increased agility will allow Balta to capture new growth opportunities and adapt to changing business conditions more quickly.” said Nallian founder & CEO Jean Verheyen.

Supply Chain Collaboration in the Cloud

Globalization has made supply chains become increasingly complex. In order to lower integration times with global partners and reduce operational costs and risks, interest in cloud-based supply chain solutions is growing dramatically. Key benefits of supply chain collaboration in the cloud include faster implementation times, no on premise software maintenance and updates, fewer internal IT resources, and 24/7 access to real-time information from anywhere using any device type.

Nallian connects supply chain stakeholders in the cloud to allow companies to collaborate effectively across the supply chain. Benefits for Nallian community members include ecosystem wide real-time visibility, higher levels of operational excellence and increased business agility.
Companies that join the Nallian cloud community tap into an existing network of international trading partners. Community members create private data clouds with trusted contacts, manage all types of data at a central data source and automate cross-company processes. Nallian’s business model allows easy and quick on-boarding of new partners, limiting integration time to a minimum and guaranteeing an immediate return on investment.
