April 29, 2021 - by Synoptek
Digital transformation of retail across production, transportation, and customer service has made supply chains extremely complex to manage and maneuver. Responding to changing retail needs with traditionally built supply chains is not only error-prone and time-consuming; it also makes it difficult to keep up with the pace of trends and competition. To drive greater efficiencies at optimized costs, organizations are looking for modern ways and means to ensure daily activities are carried out with utmost precision while delivering maximum margin and profits. And one of the best ways to do this is with an intelligent supply chain.
Through the implementation and widespread adoption of modern technologies, an intelligent supply chain helps to optimize various facets of the supply chain to save costs, earn more revenue, increase delivery speed, and get ahead of their competition. Here’s why organizations need an intelligent supply chain:
As retail organizations struggle to react quickly to changing customer priorities, an intelligent supply chain can transform traditional models to improve efficiency, visibility, and control while optimizing decision-making under uncertainty. Through the timely capture and analysis of relevant data generated from different sources, it helps organizations anticipate potential issues, identify bottlenecks, and respond to problems in an optimal way. It also allows them to act on opportunities and drive efforts to capitalize on them. Here’s how an intelligent supply chain can help in responding to changing retail needs:
The foundation of any successful business lies in how robust and resilient its supply chain is. Since a supply chain system touches every point of the retail operation, if you want to boost efficiency, visibility, and reliability of your supply chain and keep up with changing needs with increased agility and reduced costs, you need to build an intelligent supply chain using technologies like AI, BI, ML, AR, VR, and data analytics. An intelligent supply chain can not only aid in efficient asset, inventory, and fleet management; it can also help in automating warehouse operations and ensuring your systems are working in tandem with changing retail needs.
