With the onset of globalisation, managing supply chains has become more complex and business-critical than ever before. When a company’s operations are under its own control, there are fewer moving parts. However, in an environment that has become increasingly global in nature, there are more parties involved and less information available at any point in the production process. This makes it much harder for companies to stay ahead of the competition.
Having worked with over 800 customers across the globe, we have seen our customers' fair share of managing parties and operations in the supply chain process: the resources needed to turn raw materials from a supplier into a finished product for their customers and the challenges unearthed during the process.
Challenges include lack of traceability, inability to forecast demand and inventory stockouts - all of which can be avoided with lean and agile supply management processes.
That’s why more and more businesses are turning to an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) tool, such as SAP Business One, to keep their supply chain simple and efficient.
