The Secret to Enhanced Customer Experiences? Intelligent Supply Chains and Agile Operations

THE BURNING PLATFORM

The supply chain is evolving at exponential pace. While this promises new channels of growth, most companies aren’t equipped or simply haven’t realized the immense cost-saving potential of an intelligent system.

Held back by inefficient legacy technology and siloed processes, many of today’s supply chains and operations aren’t set up to manage the complexities of modern markets and shifting customer expectations. What’s more, supply chain and operations executives lack the strategic visibility to deliver hyper-personalized experiences that customers increasingly demand.

With US$14 trillion estimated in cost disruption across the value chain over the next decade, organizations can’t afford to miss an opportunity to achieve agility and drive enterprise-wide growth. So, what will it take to decode the new?

Chief Supply Chain Officers will need to radically transform their operating model and processes. That means seizing the right mix of leading-edge technologies to build intelligent and customer-centric supply chain and operations.

WHY IT MATTERS

Many of today’s supply chains and operations are too inflexible to give individual customers the hyper-personalized experience they want. Businesses struggle to compete with emerging players better equipped to handle digital disruption. In fact, only 50 percent of supply chain executives say that “decision-making speed” and “flexibility to respond” are key sources to thriving in modern markets.

Research shows that companies that understand digital transformation earn 26 percent more profit than others. Their supply chains are smarter, more connected, innovative and agile than traditional ones.

That is value companies can’t afford to lose.
