With the advent of end-to-end supply chain integration an organisation now has an unprecedented access to an immense amount of data from its supply chain. This data contains information regarding every aspect of the supply chain from the raw materials and suppliers to the finished product and customers. With the aim of increased productivity and customer satisfaction, the organisation must move towards better visibility and automation. This level of visibility allows constant monitoring over the raw materials, parts and components, finished product, spare parts and seamlessly connects the suppliers, warehousing, manufacturing, customers and logistics etc. via a common cloud-based data tree.
