John Blyzinskyj, CEOCloud-based business network design is a powerful modeling approach proven to deliver significant reduction in supply chain costs and improvements in service levels. Supply chain networks come in different flavors and sizes—more businesses are gaining substantial benefits from the use of these types of networks to connect with trading partners and more easily conduct business with each other. Wayne, PA based Elemica is the leading business network for industrial process manufacturers, designed to give them total control over their global supply chains. “Capturing an organization’s transaction data, across all their trading partners, and translating it into actionable information is key to driving value out of their supply chain,” says John Blyzinskyj, CEO of Elemica. “That keen insight is achieved through powerful business-to-business process applications run on a robust network.” The company delivers state-of-the-art supply chain applications in the areas of customer and supplier management, strategic sourcing, and logistics — promoting new levels of efficiency and profitability for a leaner and more fully optimized supply chain. Elemica's model unites global trade partners and provides an integrated framework in which they conduct business—serving customers in chemicals, biochemical, tire and rubber, petrochemical and energy, plastics, and other industries.
According to Blyzinskyj, some industry verticals have become very adept at producing products and moving bulk quantities of materials resulting in their inventory turnout to be much more modest compared to other sectors. “Our clients are investing huge amounts of capital in their supply chains so we make it our aim to offer them more control and visibility for them to improve their efficiency and products in the long run,” adds Blyzinskyj. “We help our customers reduce their working capital needs and gain more efficiency and control over their products through the supply chain.” Elemica solutions improve productivity; reduce costs, decrease errors, and increase customer and business partner satisfaction across the entire supply chain.

Elemica offers various cloud-based business process applications that run in Elemica’s business network platform. The network solutions allow users to transact with their trading partners through their preferred processes by using direct ERP connections; Email—letting clients’ Email business documents directly into an ERP; and a Portal that provides web-based access to network solutions and business documents. “Our platform underpins all of the applications being provided by Elemica, improving day to day supply chain service and reliability. The network is built up of suppliers, customers and logistics providers conducting commerce in a real-time and friction free ecosystem,” asserts Blyzinskyj. Using Elemica, DuPont—a chemical company, was able to deliver a foundational solution capable of multi-modal and multi-enterprise logistics material tracking enabling business rule-based exception event alerting functionality that is management by exception.
It is pertinent to mention that Elemica regularly engages with market research consultants in the supply chain arena to organize focus groups with customers to discuss the growing trends in the market, analyzing the advantage and how these trends can be used to offer appropriate solutions. “It helps us in readjusting our roadmap so we are focused on applications which benefit our customers now and in the future,” explains Blyzinskyj. For the days to come the company wants to continue investing in developing applications, particularly around logistics and supply management. “The commerce value on the network is quickly growing beyond $400 billion and our goal is to provide new second-to-none solutions to our customers while continuing to refine the products we already house,” concludes Blyzinskyj.
