GSCi – Ti’s research in your hands

Back in 2011 when I first joined Ti my then boss, the recently retired Rob Walter, provided me with an analogy that has stuck with me through the years as it is the best way to describe Ti’s Global Supply Chain Intelligence (GSCi) – it’s a Rubik’s Cube of information. In other words, the information included within the pages is interlinked so that the user, regardless of thought process or requirements can find what they’re after.

For example, a subscriber may be searching to find the Top 10 largest logistics providers in the chemical industry, or for a graph to track Semiconductor sales since 2009. Alternatively, you may be seeking information about the logistics activities of one of the major logistics providers in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry in Germany, or about the market size of the automotive logistics market in Asia. Regardless of requirements, GSCi subscribers can access this information and can access it through a variety of paths.

Whilst the fundamentals of GSCi remain the same, the quality of information is continually improving and GSCi’s reputation as a ‘neutral 3rd party source of information on the logistics industry’ is growing.

I’ve been fortunate enough to witness the development of the GSCi portal over the years and have been part of the team most recently reviewing functionality, listening to the wishes of our subscribers and exploring the various options which would help GSCi move forward with our growing subscriber base.

Some of new features we’ve been working on which have been launched today include:

  • A re-design of the GSCi homepage and personalised ‘My GSCi’ pages to enhance usability
  • Capability to create and download personalised reports from the information included within GSCi through the new My Reports function
  • Contact with one of Ti’s friendly team of researchers through the new Live Chat function should you have any questions about information in the portal or need some assistance with your search.

Personally, the new My Reports function has to be the feature I’m most excited about as it has helped me no-end when compiling research and industry knowledge for presentations and reports on the industry for myself and for other members of Ti. I’ve been able to gather the most recent financial results on some of the largest players to compare and contrast, in addition I’ve created quick –reports from certain provider profiles so that I can be clued up on the most recent developments of these companies. Most recently however I’ve used the function to learn more about the automotive industry in Europe so that I could partake and provide valuable opinions during the plotting and planning of the recently published Global Automotive Logistics report.
