As technology moves forward and changes with increasing speed, many tech companies face new challenges - especially when it comes to supply chain. “As technology advances, a product’s lifecycle becomes shorter and shorter,” says Jeff Eissinger, vice president of integrated supply chain operations. “So from a supply chain perspective, our approach to inventory has become leaner and more focused.”

Comcast, along with a growing number of electronics manufacturers and service providers, is focusing on reverse logistics, a series of activities required to retrieve a used product from a customer and either dispose of it or reuse it.

Not many firms can say they have changed their industry, but Amber Road Inc. can. When the term “global trade management” (GTM) was created 15 years ago, “It largely meant trade compliance,” Senior Vice President of Marketing and Business Development Ty Bordner recalls.

That has changed since Amber Road made its mark on the industry. Today, “It’s not just compliance, it’s whatever you need to move those goods across country borders,” he says. “We’ve expanded the definition.”

Based in East Rutherford, N.J., Amber Road provides cloud-based GTM software, trade content and training. “We help our companies transform their business through digitization,” Bordner says, noting that the firm started operations in 1993, but moved into the GTM space 10 years later.
