Avery Dennison Corporation has added new features to its atma.io connected product cloud, which will help transform how brands meet net-zero targets and reduce waste across the supply chain.
More than 22 billion items are currently managed by the platform across the apparel, retail, food, and healthcare segments, including six of the top 20 apparel brands globally by revenue and four of the top 10 quick-service restaurants.
Following atma.io’s recent win in the FDA food traceability challenge and the announcement of its partnership with Higg, the new atma.io Spring 2022 release focuses on sustainability and waste elimination.
The new feature, Real-time Carbon Impact Analytics, provides brands with data-driven insights regarding the carbon footprint of their products, including Scope 3 emissions and beyond.
Third-party manufacturing environmental impact data, including those provided for the apparel industry by the Higg Index, also factors into these insights. This data is then used alongside atma.io’s artificial intelligence to deliver verifiable end-to-end visibility of the brand’s emissions at an item level across the supply chain.
The atma.io Real-time Waste Elimination Tool uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to analyze and alert on anomalies and inefficiencies across the supply chain. This includes information about the overdue movement of products at a pallet level or even isolated individual items within a warehouse that are close to perishing or otherwise lost.
The new release will also add several additional functionalities, including sustainability facility assessments and expiration callouts, global inventory trace, loss prevention and purchase order tracking.
