Unlock the true value of your supply chain with NEO and Bristlecone Labs.


It’s now more critical than ever to understand the world in which supply chains function. Supply chain and procurement managers must be able to sense and adapt to real-world conditions – trade wars, market evolutions, regulatory factors, geopolitical landscapes, technological advances, weather events, etc. – before opportunities pass by and risks manifest in losses.

Sense.AI engages the real world by supply chain entities – customers, suppliers, products and competitors – and their intersection with time, geography and event. It tracks news and events that can affect your supply chain, qualifies and quantifies the impact of the event, and provides a course of action for successfully navigating through it, oftentimes even capitalizing on it.

Sense.AI is an important step on the path to true antifragility.
