Quick Learn Links Describing Blockchain

Profitability for enterprises engaged in product manufacturing and distribution hinges on Inventory, which is the foundation of supply chain management. ERP systems, Inventory Management systems, Supply Chain Finance programs, Trade Finance instruments, Letters of Credit, Open Account transactions, Purchase Orders, Invoices and Inventory Assets are the tools used in trade today. There is however significant friction, delay, leakage and cost in the use of these tools today.
Underpinned by blockchain technology, Skuchain “Brackets” a smart contract governance system, provides a number of key advantages. It provides a real-time, reliable view of transaction state bringing significant transparency for all participants and helps them build a more trustworthy and stable supply chain ecosystem. Another solution ‘POPcodes’, an acronym for Proof of Provenance codes, governs the flow of goods and it dovetails seamlessly with Brackets that govern the flow of money. POPcodes bring bank grade accounting to inventory. They provide unprecedented visibility into the production and movement of raw goods. POPcodes allow one to track physical value in the supply chain and are sophisticated in their ability to track sub-assemblies, parts and raw materials used to make a finished product.
Now anchor Buyers can improve demand and supply planning, Sellers can optimize cash flow and Financiers can finance the distribution network and Deep Tiers of the supply chain, resulting in reduced friction, delay and costs across the ecosystem.
1. About the transformative and disruptive effects of Blockchain/distributed ledger technology on cross-border trade and the entire supply chain
2. How blockchain technology with its inherent properties of immutability enables trust and mitigates risk thus allowing supply chain ecosystem partners to work collaboratively
3. About lowering COGS whilst simultaneously increasing visibility, security and the ability for real-time audits
4. How to enable Financiers to participate in Investment - grade risk mitigated vehicles thus  creating liquidity, bringing working capital relief to SMEs in the supply chain
5. How to allow Buyers and Sellers to interact in a win-win transaction where Buyers get to keep extended payment terms while Sellers get paid early.
