Cleo provides superior integration that bridges on-premise infrastructure with cloud-based applications, with support for B2B integration (B2Bi), managed file transfer (MFT), application integration (A2A), extreme file transfer, and big data movement, all on a single, easy-to-use platform.


How Cleo manufacturing solutions benefit consumer good producers

Problem Key Capabilities Needed
Transformation Business increasingly relies on an expanding set of format standards and file types. The ability for your business systems to handle these comes down to your capacity to map/translate EDI and non-EDI documents, and execute business processes and essential transactions with data transformation across all structure levels.
Protocols You require the systematic flexibility to communicate using a variegated mix of secure protocols from FTP to AS2 and more, connecting your digital topography on a single platform.
Visibility Advanced visibility and reporting add a transparency layer to the digital supply chain, allowing you to focus on analytics, increasing production efficiency, enhancing stock management, and enforcing SLAs.
Security Your ability to ensure data security is extremely important to your downstream suppliers, logistics partners, and especially to upstream retailers. Enterprise data integration can close possible security gaps and eliminate chinks in your data armor, mitigating the risk of a breach.
Monitoring Eliminate time-consuming use of valuable resources. Dashboards with real-time file monitoring and alert notifications are essential to speeding up issue resolution, and enhancing system performance.
