Let Supply Chain Technology Help Your Business
Since your business has issues that are unique to your industry and which filter down to the way you run your company, it would be inaccurate to claim there is one solution that will work in all circumstances. The following are some examples of situations where supply chain management solutions can play a role in adding value and help your business stay competitive.
- Meet Increasing Customer Expectations
There certainly isn’t any shortage of information moving through the supply chain of your business. Rather than trying to keep track of it personally or attempting to write it down on paper and stay current with the immense volume that is constantly being received, it makes more sense to adopt a paperless system.
According to Pitney Bowes Parcel Shipping Index,13 billion parcels were shipped in the US alone (2018). The Index reveals that 2,760 parcels are shipped every second from somewhere in the world. This volume is not going to slow down since parcel shipping is expected to reach 200 billion in volume in 2025.
- Meet Increasing Customer Expectations
It’s no secret that e-commerce customer expectations are not becoming easier to satisfy over time. Good customer service is only the minimum expectation from modern buyers. Instead, they want the items they are ordering to be readily available from the warehouse, picked by your team and shipped promptly.
- Automated Billing
Automated billing means items being shipped from your warehouse and having invoices sent out immediately, as opposed to having to wait for specific billing periods from your accounting department. The faster you can have these invoices forwarded to your customers, the shorter the billing cycle is likely to be. If a customer pays an invoice even five days earlier, it can have a positive impact on your company’s cash flow.
