Your business needs
Companies who’ve worked hard to optimise their own processes often still struggle to capitalise on this because of suboptimal workflow with supply chain partners.
This is because although you’re all working to the same end goal, each organisation has its own processes and business rules, with different data definitions and KPIs. This makes it almost impossible to attain the end-to-end real-time process visibility and transparency necessary for managing volatile demand and ensuring on-time delivery.
As a result, communication, registration and monitoring of changes and updates between supply chain partners is cumbersome. The ability to predict changes and create improvement strategies for Inventory management, Warehousing and Transport route optimisation, all of which are so key to competitive advantage, is non-existent. Lead times are long and managing the boundaries between different organisations is expensive. An inside-out management perspective tends to develop which ultimately does nothing to improve serving the customer.
Supply Chain Leaders desire better connection between supply chain data sources and the ability to unite around a shared view of insights. But how do you achieve this when every organisation is a separate entity playing by its own individual rules?
