The Digital Supply Chain
The retail supply chain is under siege. From always-connected consumers to calls for value chain transparency, retailers have struggled to keep up with changing expectations—to say nothing of new technologies.
Yet the companies that have invested in creating a consumer-driven, digitally connected, end-to-end supply chain planning process have reaped enormous benefits. Canadian retailer Princess Auto now consistently achieves in-stocks of around 98%, even during promotional periods. Other retailers have enhanced margins, reduced days outstanding and cycle time, and increased forecast accuracy up to 40%—all by overhauling their supply chains.
