Have you harnessed the value that lies just beyond your ERP system?
For many supply chain executives, the pandemic leaves behind the legacy of the enduring challenges of just-in-time manufacturing, increasing inventory costs, and the complexities of sourcing during a disruption. These challenges have been compounded by the need to collaborate beyond the enterprise with vendors, suppliers and even customers. This is something that ERP systems were not designed to support. More and more, we are seeing supply chain executives recognize that it is no longer enough to depend on their ERP to navigate the complexities of today’s disrupted global economy.
This month we are focusing on the benefits of a dedicated supply chain planning platform that goes beyond your ERP system, to connect planning, execution and procurement to your strategic business outcomes.
Does your ERP really help you manage your supply chain? How can an ERP system support a world of supply chains with unique challenges, goals and network diversity? Your business needs technology to optimize your supply chain well beyond anything an ERP can provide.
Plan with speed and precision using the right technology
More and more supply chain leaders are turning away from ERP for supply chain due to the difficulties in accessing and analyzing data that addresses challenges, risks and opportunities quickly and accurately.
Question: Is my ERP sufficient for effective supply chain planning?
Answer: Supply chains have tremendous potential embedded in them to see their enterprise through disruption and reveal opportunities. They not only have the power to sense change faster than the rest of the business, but also to pivot faster by identifying alternative actions, partners, and routes to market in real time. Unfortunately, ERP systems – no matter how modern, up to date, and intelligent – cannot support the comprehensive and trusted planning, guidance, and execution needed to deliver better outcomes for your business.
