From distribution centers to global trade, supply chain management relies heavily on an ever evolving suite of technologies that help increase efficiency and productivity. Bridget McCrea in her recent article for SupplyChain 247, Supply Chain Execution Software, took a deep dive into the various types of technology being employed and the driving market forces behind the critical role supply chain execution (SCE) software plays in supply chain processes.
In the article, McCrea looks at some of the technologies that are driving supply chain management and the needs they were developed to fulfill. One of the key drivers of new SCE software is visibility.
In both the business to business (B2B) and business to consumer (B2C) markets, there is a growing need for visibility at every stage in the supply chain. From distribution centers through the shipping process, new technologies that allow for greater visibility are being employed. This has led to many new mobile and cloud based options for increasing efficiency within distribution centers and warehouses.
In the same vein, companies are also turning to automation options for driving down costs and increasing profitability.
