World events in 2020 have driven home the need to strengthen resilience across global supply chains. As businesses start to emerge and reopen, the day-to-day challenges faced by supply chain and fulfillment leaders are being amplified by enormous disruptions in supply and demand.
The need to act quickly has never been more crucial. To respond effectively, companies need real-time intelligence and actionable recommendations to help mitigate disruptions and risk.
That’s best achieved with purpose-built control towers designed to optimize core supply chain functions. For example, a purpose-built inventory control tower could give you essential real-time insights to manage inventory more effectively.
When enabled by AI and machine learning, a supply chain inventory control tower enables end-to-end visibility across inventory silos and disparate systems — from raw material availability and supplier orders to the last mile of customer delivery.
It provides accurate, real-time, available-to-promise inventory to drive improved decision-making and outcomes. This aids not only in predicting possible vulnerabilities and disruptions, but also understanding the upstream and downstream impacts, enabling a more rapid response.
