Too many business people wake up each day worrying about the future of their company’s supply chain.
So what is the best way to modernize it? The word “modernization” may not be the most compelling way to begin a conversation about information technology. Most product marketers wouldn’t be caught dead (or at least identified) using a term that sounds like a throw-back to the days of “data processing.”
And yet, despite all the exciting innovations and benefits being achieved through the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing and digital transformation in general, a multitude of business people still wake up every morning – with both feet in the present - worrying about the future of their organization’s supply chain.
Companies are rightly concerned about how well their B2B Integration and EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) system strategy is serving their supply chain and partner ecosystem - and whether their current technology provides the necessary support to efficiently produce and distribute, products and services to their customers.
They’re also feeling the burdens of:
- Increasing costs for maintaining multiple ecommerce standards and systems.
- Inconsistent or unsupported EDI data-interchange translations, resulting in partner and customer dissatisfaction.
- Inefficient and slow partner onboarding.
And of course-
- The inability to streamline supply chain.
