In this ebook, Dave Nelson, principal at value chain optimization firm River Rock Advisors discusses the use of customer relationship management (CRM) processes and tools to pilot a precision-based, in-depth use of data to forecast demand while giving leaders greater insight into their customer base.
No matter how well your team has done its supply chain planning, it seems like exceptions keep arising and you’re constantly in fire-fighting mode. In the case of supply chain, the issue isn’t so much about operations, it’s about the ability to collaborate quickly and effectively when an exception deviates from the established plan. This is why forward-thinking organizations are creating Centers of Excellence for their supply chain.
It takes a village to take a product from concept to cash, but the supply chains that support this are a complex web, with limited integration between financial forecasting, planning, manufacturing execution, logistics and key partners/suppliers. Spotting potential challenges and facilitating constant communication across the extended supply chain and entire enterprise is critical to meet ongoing customer demand and market volatility. While maintaining effective communication can be complex, collaboration shouldn’t be chaotic.
Join Mike Hegedus from TrinityRail, Michael Ciatto from Genpact, and Patrick Van Hull from Kinaxis to learn how organizations are using hyperconnected supply chains to overcome the chaos. Find out how TrinityRail is breaking down silos, gaining greater transparency and agility across its organization and supplier network, all within a centralized platform.
