Welcome to The New Age of Supply Chain Planning

Supply chains must go from survival mode to proactive mode, with a high-performance planning, forecasting and analytics model. Accuracy here will earn customer loyalty and market share, given the increase in e-commerce demand and customer expectations. Fall behind now and you risk losing the hearts and minds of your customers.

With supply chains now central to commercial success, planning departments are set to undergo a new wave of transformation, switching from outdated manual data processing models to a reliable, fast and cost-effective predictive strategy.

2021 is the year to set the budgets, innovate and prepare to scale collaboratively, changing the way brands plan their supply chains and forecast demand to exceed the expectations of their customers.

Key Themes for Reuters Events: Supply Chain Planning 2021;
Defining the Future of Supply Chain.

  • Data Infrastructure & Strategic Partner Integration A comprehensive data strategy breaks down and picks apart the entire existing ecosystem of suppliers and systems from ERPs down to paper receipts and reconsider needs based on the supply chain structure you already have. Knowing exactly what your current capabilities are will help you build your 5-year roadmap to seamless data integration, collection, and analysis.
  • Advanced Supply Chain Analytics Breaking down massive datasets into actionable insights is nearly impossible when you don’t know what to look for. An even worse scenario is when there’s no data to be interpreted leaving your strategies up in the air, leaving shippers in a reactive state instead of a proactive one, delaying your product and creating a loss in profits. Make sure you make to most of the data form the very start.
  • Change Management: Process Road Map & Leadership The people element of a digital transformation strategy is the most difficult to tackle. People need to be a part of the process, and finding a way to listen, train and involve your talent and workforce into the strategy is a science.
  • Scaling Up: Pilot & Process Analysis, Financial Planning and Execution We are on the cusp of massive digital transformation processes across supply chains. These take a long time to implement, resource and can be a big financial risk if you do not test and consider the approach carefully. Before you consider the latest buzzy tech, take into consideration the needs of the business and processes that need to be changed and optimised. Make sure you have the right base to implement the next big thing.
