A digital supply chain will enable you to manage global risk; improve agility, speed and quality; and reduce costs in many areas of your operation.  
 

Change is often hard, but the digitization of data and the application of automation technology presents the opportunity to drive business value throughout the global supply chain.

In its realized state, a digital supply chain will enable you to manage global risk; improve agility, speed and quality; and reduce costs in many areas of your operation. IDC predicts that, by 2020, digitally-mature companies will achieve $430 billion in productivity gains over their less-connected peers.

IMPROVE MARGINS

A digital platform provides a means to unlock real value. Collaboration creates opportunities for workforce efficiency, as well as improvements in supply chain speed and quality. Automation increases productivity and allows for the reduction of third party costs. Analytics allow for the identification of new savings opportunities in sourcing, duties and taxes, and transportation functions.

ENABLE SUPPLY CHAIN AGILITY

The ability to react to unplanned or non-standard requirements in an efficient, timely, and capable manner creates an agile supply chain. Owning a core digital platform provides both control and flexibility. For instance, if a particular 3PL provider is not performing, they can easily be replaced by a new provider.

REDUCE SUPPLY CHAIN RISK

A digital platform enables better risk management. Effective collaboration of supplier and quality information reduces the risk that suppliers or products will later fail social, environmental, or quality standards. Automation of the identification and validation of country-specific regulations provides for a standard global processing model, and added insurance that all regulatory obligations are handled. The ability to detect (and react to) any supply chain event, in real time, creates an environment that reduces bottleneck and delay risks.

This type of change is not easy if your organization is working in multiple, siloed systems. A data-driven world enables delivering an end-to-end, on-time and risk-reduced experience.
