How important are innovative supply chain tools to the success of retailers and Consumer Product Goods companies in today’s marketplace? How vital is it that the right technology is tightly integrated and coordinated as part of any supply chain solution?
A recently published survey by Bloomberg Newsweek makes it clear that supply chain innovation is rising in importance as companies begin to realize that trying to operate in anything other than a real-time supply chain is a significant competitive disadvantage. Over three-quarters of the Bloomberg survey respondents recognize that the creation of real-time supply chains is “highly important.”
Collaborative, Real-Time Supply Chain: The Time is Now!
A collaborative, real-time supply chain provides decision makers with actionable information that enables the adapting of the supply chain to consumer demand. As supply chains evolve, it is key for companies to view their supply chain as broader than what is inside their own four walls. Supply chain evolution requires integration and collaboration with partners. It is the only way. This level of integration requires aligned goals and measures, common insights and clean item, price and location information.
Successfully shifting to a more science and data driven supply chain model requires a fully integrated solution: One solution that seamlessly combines administrative, operational and financial data across the entire value chain.
