What Is Supply Chain Orchestration (Really) – And Is It Even Possible?

Learn what complete “supply chain orchestration” really means and find out if it is an attainable goal within your existing ERP, business process environments.

As every organization is learning, executives need accurate, up-to-the-minute data to make the right decisions. Workers need accurate, real-time data to take the right actions.

And, trading partners need access to the same data sets to deliver the right inventory to the right place at the right time. Delays in communication or disconnected data transmissions are not only disruptive; they are a direct hindrance to profitability.

Yet, research indicates that more than half of organizations are lacking the technology to directly connect every one of their business systems and every one of their suppliers in one place. The ERP is not designed to be a supply chain management solution, much less a supply chain orchestration engine.

And many supply chain management platforms only address one business challenge in a piecemeal way. In other words, supply chain orchestration – and the technology required to deliver complete visibility, collaboration and precision execution – is often misunderstood.

“At the end of the day, every organization is trying to find a way to manage all of its supply chain transactions and trading partners in one place,” explained Brad Huff, executive vice president and general manager of TAKE Supply Chain. “However, executing a perfectly coordinated supply chain operation remains challenging.

Existing ERP and business systems are often missing the one critical technology component required to connect every single stakeholder and automate every single workflow without significant IT resource requirements. That is precisely what we’re going to address in this webinar conversation.”

Attendees will walk away with a clear understanding of how to find and centrally apply a true Supply Chain Orchestration platform, without having to re-engineer any business processes.

Supply Chain Orchestration Webinar | Feb. 15, 2018 | 10:00am CT

Executives need data to make the right decisions. Workers need data to take the right actions. Trading partners need data to deliver the right inventory to the right place at the right time. You can’t afford any delay in communication or disconnected data transmission. Yet most supply chains lack the right ERP and business system connections to create a complete “decision network” between you and your trading partners.

In this webinar on February 15th, Brad Huff, EVP & GM at TAKE Supply Chain will be discussing this topic and addressing how a centrally-applied Supply Chain Orchestration platform is the “missing link” in complex manufacturing environments.
