Consumers are buying products through many different channels, which has made the consumer goods supply chain more complex than ever before. The consumer goods industry must now contend with the need to respond to supply and demand in the omnichannel marketplace with real time capabilities.
With the movement from pure store-delivery to store-plus-home-delivery, you have many more points of consumption than ever before. The number of orders increase substantially because there are no longer only truck loads. Now companies must have the ability to manage parcels while providing a higher level of service.
In order to tackle the issues that arise in this scenario, many consumer goods companies are adopting “control towers.” A network-based control tower enables full visibility across the organization’s existing legacy systems to help manage everything from consumer demand fulfillment, to execution against that demand, while matching the supply of goods in one integrated process. As a result, many processes can be automated ensuring higher levels of service delivered to the consumer.A network control tower enables a host of capabilities in a single integrated process. It enables full visibility, demand fulfillment, execution, and more. - James Curtis Click To Tweet
The environment for consumer goods companies are changing faster than ever before as customers demand to buy products through several channels. This is creating a revolution in the way they will need to deliver products to their customers by quickly adapting to more efficient supply chain practices merged with technology that delivers real time capabilities.
