The importance of an efficient supply chain was made clear to everyone in 2020, when unforeseen disruption wreaked havoc throughout the retail ecosystem. Today, the merchants and manufacturers who were able to plug those gaps now face a new conundrum: How to build — and maintain — a supply chain that not only meets new consumer demands for speed and convenience, but minimizes waste and maximizes resources. As the product pipeline grows more complex, the smartest vendors will turn to technology and deploy a new control tower for supply chain success.
Just as the product life cycle involves multiple components and partners, so too does an effective supply chain management solution. Internal operations must be managed by dedicated software, able to provide real-time access to supply and demand mismatches so that retailers can take action and restore stock balances. From the macro level, retailers need to be able to leverage both their own private enterprise data and the insights of their community and the public to gain end-to-end visibility. And they need to be able to integrate all this information within a single system.
With the right collection of supply chain tools, retailers can stop just planning for tomorrow and start to envision the future. In this webinar from Google Cloud, Accenture, o9 and ESG, industry experts will break down what a next-generation supply chain can look like.
