Supply Chain Management – optimize your logistics to match users’ behaviour
Transform your supply chain to face new business challenges and increase performance.
In a constantly changing, hyperconnected world, new digital uses are transforming consumer behaviours. Today’s users want fast, efficient service that’s available at all times.
They keep an eye on recommendations and are highly aware of environmental issues. To meet their expectations, you need an extended, connected and agile supply chain that can be monitored in real time and that interacts with your partners’ infrastructures.
This way, you can offer end customers and consumers a personalized relationship while keeping operational costs under control, to support an efficient and sustainable digital strategy.
Powerful supply chain
The 2020 health crisis has shown that digital promise cannot be fulfilled without an advanced and powerful supply chain.
- Reduce the costs of operations and logistics to improve productivity.
- Increase the profitability of your digital distribution channel.
- Reduce risks on purchasing, operations and delivery.
- Increase your Customer/Consumer satisfaction and service level.
- Ensure an extended, seamless and integrated Supply Chain with full product and operation traceability.
Supply chain – challenges and goals
Like any other operation, your supply chain needs to be sustainable. External solutions, optimization, co-construction with the customer, SLA adjustments… all these can be studied and transformed to reduce carbon footprint.
Digital transformation develops new standard behaviours among Customers/Consumers. Quality of SCM, SLA, quality of delivery, substitution products, 7/24 service, relevance of recommendations, traceability of product origins… these are some of the challenges that SCM addresses to fulfil the digital brand promise.
The strength of your SCM today lies in its ability to interact with other SCMs (Suppliers, Customers…). Create a seamless flow of logistics operations and information, based on IS-IT capabilities and coherent and orchestrated processes, to establish a unique “voice” for the Customer.
Digital strategy, such as omnichannel or Direct to Consumer, requires adjusting both the operational capabilities of your supply chain and your network. Logistic principles, warehouse capacity, make-or-buy strategies, etc. must be re-imagined and aligned with the concrete content of your digital strategy.
Supply chain today can be operated in real time and with event management control. Based on the consolidation and analysis of connected logistic vehicle data, SCM operations can be monitored and adjusted to other processes like sales, profitability analysis, customer care, etc.
SCM cost optimization is based both on operation optimizations (picking, packaging, delivery…) and on strategic SCM planning to optimize assets and equipment occupation rate. Advanced planning impacts both SCM performance (SLA) and investment and operational costs.
