Frequently Asked Questions
What is Hercules (HERC)?
Hercules blockchain software tracks physical inventory in a supply chain with a digital source to store and review auditing information. The HERC software access token is designed to erase ongoing problems in centralized supply chain management such as:
- Frequent supply shortages.
- Low order-filling and inefficient logistics rates.
- Lack of end-to-end visibility and counterfeiting of assets.
- Compromise of quality and high operational costs.
- Ineffective supply chain risk management.
- Lack of collaboration among different entities.
- Limited access to data about the state of entire supply chain networks.
Why Use Blockchain in Supply Chain Management?
Blockchains create a permanent and shared record of every transaction associated with an asset to create an unbroken chain of trust. Each record is time-stamped and appended to the event before it. Using Blockchain has the potential to improve tasks such as:
- Tracking purchase orders, receipts, shipment notifications, or other trade-related documents.
- Recording the quantity and transfer of assets as they move between supply chain nodes.
- Assigning or verifying certifications or certain properties of physical products.
- Linking physical goods to serial numbers, barcodes, digital tags like RFID, etc.
- Sharing information about manufacturing process, assembly, delivery, and maintenance of products with suppliers and vendors.
