With the eHub, Zeneca anticipates that its procurement organization interact and collaborate with strategic suppliers/sub-suppliers online, for more efficient sourcing and supply management. The Atlas software helps global firms and their suppliers/distributors by implementing shared, externalized business processes. With it, Zeneca was able to initiate the pilot project in three weeks, says Dave Allen, supply-chain director. Atlas Commerce, headquartered in Malvern, Pa., provides Internet business applications. Zeneca Agrochemicals, formerly part of London-based $18.4 billion AstraZeneca, merged this November with the agrochemicals/seeds business of $21.6 billion Novartis to form a new company, Syngenta. This Basel, Switzerland-based firm operates across areas of crop protection and seeds.
