With increased globalisation and offshore sourcing, Supply Chain Management is becoming an important issue for many businesses. Distributors face the challenge of lower margins due to global competition and higher costs due to fuel prices and shorter product life-cycles.
Customers need Just-In-Time inventory. This requirement puts pressure on Distributors to deliver goods more quickly and to be more agile in their distribution channels. Distribution companies need to react to changes in demand and accommodate customers with tight timelines. Distributors are increasingly creating customer-specific supply chains to ensure optimum value in terms of timing, quality and cost.
Scalable's experience with distribution organisations that face the above challenges has helped customers re-evaluate their Supply Chain processes, resulting in a suite of modules that promote efficiencies, improve financial transparency, and drive cost reductions in the Supply Chain.
