What if I told you that the process of deploying a blockchain solution should be relatively fast like in minutes to hours, and easy and not demand a massive investment? Based on deployment-ready solutions available now, significant benefits, the least of which are transparency and traceability can be realised early on and can be easily repeated and scaled along your supply chain. If the solution you're considering cannot perform these simple functions, it's time to reevaluate.
