What is the CRP?
Each organization on one of our blockchain networks is given its own CRP (Collaborative Resource Planning) system with multiple services.
Given that the ERP is the nerve center of most supply chains, a blockchain platform can be effective only if it integrates with these systems. At the same time, there needs to be a bridge between the functionality of existing systems and the applications on the platform. That was the inspiration for our CRP, which essentially allows members of a supply chain ecosystem to collaborate on a decentralized ERP. In addition to native functionality, it serves as a bridge between existing ERP systems, standalone supply chain management tools, Excel spreadsheets, EDI documents and the like.
Once data passes into the CRP, it is validated and logged onto the blockchain, where it can then be used in EC3’s applications.
