Surgere – The Automotive Supply Chain Data Ecosystem from David Zingery on Vimeo.

Annually, the automotive industry “misplaces” an average of 18% of its packaging assets, many times including the parts within. These supply chain failures easily add up to an expense exceeding $2 billion and a lot of chaos. Without a solution built upon massive collaboration, highly accurate technology, common processes and data mapping, OEMs and their supplier community are trapped in supply chains that will always function below optimal capacity.

Simply put: Failure is expensive.

Shouldn’t there be a better, easier, more efficient way to manage your assets?

Finally, there is.  
In the film “Twister,” storm chasers Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt deploy hundreds of weather sensors into the path of an oncoming tornado to map the inside of a funnel cloud. This plot point inspired Surgere® founder William Wappler to create the supply chain platform thatʼs revolutionizing the automotive industry.

With the speed and evolution of technology, sometimes hype is mistaken for innovation. And, we all know theory doesnʼt fix a supply chain. Weʼve all been waiting for the “real thing.” For years now, Surgere has been delivering sensor-based solutions that deliver incredibly high levels of accuracy into more automotive locations than any other company. Everyday COS, Surgereʼs software platform, provides insightful information and direction to supply chain managers who now have the tools to greatly reduce cost and increase efficiency. Stop living in the path of the supply chain “Twister.” Join the growing community of advanced supply chain management by being a member of the Automotive Data Ecosystem Design Group. The future is here.

Silo-solutions are now a thing of the past. The founding collaborators of the Automotive Supply Chain Data Ecosystem consist of 5 OEMs, 8 Tier-1s, 2 Logistics service providers and 1 Solution provider. Up to this point, fragmentation and independent OEM-to-Supplier standards have created a lot of extra work and mixed messages. This is the first time ever that a common platform and standard set has been shared and developed by multiple OEMs and Suppliers.
Surgere’s cloud-based COS™ platform has been selected as the “central data nerve center” of the Automotive Supply Chain Data Ecosystem. Touting robust analytics and scalable environments, Surgere’s ecosystem platform integrates cleanly to ERP, WMS and YMS systems. Leveraging all types of sensor-based data-capture and -reporting devices, the ecosystem will be a proponent of innovation and stimulate new and exciting technologies.
