Redefining the value chain in the age of the connected consumer
For a consumer products company to transform their value chain, it must have the capability to apply insights from a 360-degree customer view and comprehensively track and monitor demand information. It must also provide a single face to the customer that masks an organization’s internal operations, which can result in a positive customer experience. And, it must move beyond transactional supply chain enterprise systems and operational rules of thumb to more-advanced optimization and supply chain technologies. With seamless and secure integration of key business processes along with insightful business analytics, consumer product companies can better manage their supplier interactions, improve inventory and logistics management and enhance the fulfillment of customer and consumer experiences.
