SERUS has been providing a comprehensive hosted supply chain management and execution solution to semiconductor and other high-tech companies for more than a decade. Its core offering consolidates real time operational data from a customer’s multi-tiered partner network, with unprecedented detail, into a single SaaS-based platform to provide visibility into work in process, inventory, engineering and shipments across the customer’s entire manufacturing and global supply chain.

Workflow collaboration with both small and large suppliers, utilizing SEEBURGER’s process flow engine to transparently connect customers’ internal processes to the Serus portal
A full range of standards and protocols, notably including RosettaNet
Faster supplier onboarding utilizing pre-configured SEEBURGER message maps tailored to the technology industry
Integration with any ERP system utilizing pre-built SEEBURGER adapters
The joint solution will also utilize SEEBURGER’s enterprise-class business integration platform for critical data transmission and transformation functions.
