Yanfeng Visteon Selects E2open for Global Supplier Collaboration

Yanfeng Visteon Automotive Electronics, a joint-venture of Yanfeng Visteon Automotive Trim Systems and Visteon Corporation, has selected E2open to transform its supply chain collaboration program. E2open is a California-based provider of cloud-based, on-demand software solutions enabling enterprises to procure, manufacture, sell, and distribute products more efficiently through collaborative execution across global trading networks.

Brand owners use E2open solutions to gain visibility into and control over their trading networks through the near real-time information, integrated business processes, and analytics that E2open provides. More than 34,000 trading partners, with over 105,000 unique registered users, currently participate in the E2open Business Network (EBN), which allows participants to access and share data and execute business processes in a secure and timely manner.

EBN enables its customers to share product information, forecasts, inventory positions, sales orders, purchase orders, manufacturing work orders, quality and environmental data, shipments, invoices, and payments with their trading partners. The E2Open community comprises brand owners and their suppliers, particularly in markets with short shelf-life products, such as consumer electronics and apparel. E2open customers include Celestica, Cisco, Dell, Embraer, HGST, IBM, L'Oréal, LSI, Motorola Solutions, Seagate, and Vodafone.

Yanfeng Visteon Automotive Electronics supplies audio and meter devices, designing and producing a variety of electronics control solutions, including navigation, audio entertainment systems, centralized electronic control modules, and power control modules. The company has six manufacturing plants across China and operates the largest electronics technology research and development center in Asia.

Using E2open's cloud-based collaborative execution platform, Yanfeng Visteon plans to improve its global supply chain operations with automated information exchange, a consolidated view of global spend, and real-time insight into supplier commitments and issue resolutions across its network of more than 600 suppliers. These capabilities should improve risk management (by addressing potential supply disruptions in time) and offer better service levels to the company’s global customers.

Yanfeng Visteon Automotive Electronics hopes hereby to become a benchmark of supply chain excellence in the Chinese domestic automotive industry.
