Uniting the Supply Chain
There is still huge potential to be harnessed when it comes to improving efficiency in the supply chain of energy and natural resources. How? By making upgrades to IT infrastructure.
Many companies want to move away from customized monolith solutions that are complex and costly to operate. Instead, they want to streamline their processes and employ standard solutions that enable them to remain up to date while keeping costs manageable. The aim is to base this on the SaaS principle, with automatic upgrades and innovative product offers to go with it.
Only by building a product ecosystem of this kind can you keep pace with the competition and stay on top of technical trends. This also ensures you are ready to handle the challenges of our time, such as an ageing workforce and increasingly strict legal provisions. Finally, it paves the way for predictable processes that run smoothly.
Our contribution to meeting future demands: Supply Chain United, the new global industry platform for all logistics and commercial processes in the supply chain of energy and natural resources.
How does the Supply Chain United (SCU) work?
Master the challenges of terminal management
UnitedTMS is Implico’s terminal management solution suite that solves the problems of tomorrow, today! It consists of Implico’s renowned OpenTAS terminal management system, which covers the core solutions for tank farms and is available in three expansion levels.

Make more of your data
Your business is connected to SCU through UnitedDAT, Implico’s new industry-wide system and data integration portal connecting all trading partners in the supply chain. UnitedDAT also enables companies, regardless of their data source, to prepare data for analysis and business decisions, thereby allowing for preventive maintenance, data-driven automated operations, and sustainability reporting.
The automated route to automatic efficiency
The data that is standardized and prepared by UnitedDAT paves the way for intelligent business process automation via AI and machine learning. This is done by UnitedBPA, Implico’s novel portfolio of automation services.
SCU consists of modular Core Solutions, which cover the main business capabilities, and AddONs, which offer additional features and can be combined with our Core Solutions.
All these business capabilities are accessible as highly integrated cloud services, offering end-to-end digitalized business processes. This product architecture presents new opportunities, not least for market participants who want to launch their own digital transformation but have not yet found the time, resources or budget to do so.
- SCU offers seamless IT landscape integration. Regardless of how customized your current system is, we can connect it to SCU.
- Use of the services in SCU only requires you to be connected to the platform on a technical level. There is no need for any major implementation measures.
- This means we can roll out your digital transformation during active operation, step by step, without affecting your workflows.
