Supply Chain Intelligence
Knowledge is power!
Managing opposing priorities along the supply chain is already a daily task for leading companies. What with increasing complexity, speed, data volumes, more demanding clients, and limited resources, supply chain managers are facing enormous pressure to maintain a balance between operational efficiency, perfect order dispatch, and flexibility along the supply chain. Profitability and cost management take top priority, followed by supply chain flexibility and the need to fulfill client requirements.
Inventories, distribution, procurement, and transport number among the most important cost factors along the supply chain. The option to minimize these represents a competitive advantage and a key way for leading companies to take a competitive leap past the competition.
