The supply chain is the new battleground for winning customers; Accenture is helping companies to transform their supply chains to help them to compete in today’s digital world.
Today’s consumer expects to be able to shop a multitude of channels, and get fast, cheap and convenient delivery, either to their homes, a store, or a pick up point. This means that retailers and consumer goods companies are having to completely rethink their supply chains, which have not been designed to handle these challenges. With constant market pressure being put on speed, cost, and reliability of delivery, the supply chain has become the new battleground in the digital world. Transforming the supply chain to drive profitable sales has become a burning platform, critical to future success.
Accenture Consulting strengthened its supply chain capability to help its clients address these changes by acquiring Total Logistics, a leading logistics and supply chain consultancy. Bringing strong industry experience and capabilities in network and transport optimization and warehouse design and implementation, the acquisition reinforced Accenture’s ability to deliver digital transformations to meet challenging customer demands. In this way Accenture has become a holistic provider of omni-channel transformations, with the strength and capabilities to provide a truly end-to-end service.
