The Supply Chain has become an undeniably potent growth driver and differentiating factor in today’s increasingly unpredictable economy.
But in order to optimize it, overarching visibility and synchronization are first necessary at every level: From customers to vendors to service providers, the goal is to ensure that end consumers benefit from available products at the right time and at the best price.
To do so, it is now more than ever necessary to make the individual value chain a collective affair.
To improve Supply Chain performance, the time has come for those involved to collaborate and pool their resources.
In a market where sales offerings adjust to consumer purchases, efficient Supply Chain management has become a crucial challenge for mass retail, and industrial companies and distributors must adopt a more collaborative approach than ever before.
When dealing with the Supply Chain, SSM is a prime example of the benefits offered by collaboration.
It is even possible to extend this logic of collaboration with Pooled Supply Management - also known as pooling - even further, which of course adds another layer of complexity. The future of supply management may just hang on to the success of pooling between competing brands.
“The Shared Supply Management process has become an indispensable cutting edge in the industry, particularly for FMCG players. Use of a powerful collaborative solution has been shown to drive performance and can help companies set themselves apart from the competition.” Quentin Censier, Senior Supply Chain Consultant at GENERIX GROUP
