If you’re like most manufacturers today, your world includes a diverse group of partners, such as subcontractors, co-manufacturers and third-party distributors. But what it doesn’t include is a complete view of what’s actually happening – at any moment in time – in this extended supply chain.
While outsourcing offers many benefits, it also begets challenges, especially around visibility and data integration of the supply chain processes that are no longer managed in house. The lack of consistency from partner to partner makes it difficult to securely gain the reliable information necessary to track product, answer customer queries or update information in real time.
- Do you know what these visibility gaps cost you in risk and efficiency?
- Are you carrying excess safety stock to compensate for potential delays or miscalculations of product availability?
- Are you extending customer delivery dates to make up for a lack of visibility of partner processes?
At Acsis, we know that most manufacturers are facing these supplier integration challenges, which is why we’ve teamed up with Supply Chain Digest to develop a brief survey on the topic.
Clearly, if you are already using Acsis Edge Network, you’ve already solved these problems.
But if not, we invite you to weigh in on your gaps in visibility and their effect on your everyday business.
