4 Questions You Should Ask Your Next Supply Chain Management Vendor

Today I want to give you the four key questions you should ask your next supply chain management vendor. Last year Gartner reported that companies that implemented demand-driven value networks grew revenue faster, achieved more than 15 percent higher perfect-order rates, and reduced levels by as much as a one-third when compared to their peers with traditional, cost-focused value chains.

Why Connecting an Entire Supply Chain to a Network Platform Makes Sense

Supply chains today are dysfunctional. Each member uses discrete enterprise systems with little or no ability to communicate with any other systems (even those within the same company).

This lack of upstream and downstream visibility typically means that retailers have little idea what conditions manufacturing plants are facing at a particular time, and vice versa.

Top 5 Signs Your Supply Chain is Dysfunctional and How Technology Can Help

As I discussed in my last post, “From Vertical to Virtual Integration”, over the past 25 years or so, supply chains have become far more complex and dispersed, and technology has struggled to keep up. Lack of upstream and downstream visibility and lack of control are reoccurring complaints that I hear from companies across industries, including Retail, CPG, Automotive, Logistics, Hi-Tech, and the Military.

From Vertical to Virtual Integration: The Next Major Shift in Enterprise Technology

Think for moment about the amount of technological change we’ve all experienced in the last 25 years. I once listened to music with a clunky eight-track player. Now I have Spotify, which lets me instantly stream nearly any song from the cloud for free. I once booked trips with a travel agent, manually entered business contacts into a Rolodex, and physically carried important documents on a floppy disc.
