Manufacturing supply chain requirements seem to change almost daily, making it all the more challenging to satisfy customers and operate efficiently. Robotics, low-cost country manufacturing, emerging customer markets, new sales channels, and changes in trade agreements require manufacturers to constantly adapt their supply chains. To grow and succeed, manufacturers need agility to build anywhere and sell everywhere, with global supply chain orchestration across plants, suppliers, distribution, sales channels, and customers. The MPO Multi Party Orchestration platform allows you to enhance collaboration across partners, grow business in new markets, and source goods and production globally.
Manufacturing Supply Chain
How Can Manufacturers Drive High-Performance Supply Chains?
Manufacturers have become more reliant on service providers to run their supply chains. Working with multiple parties inevitably introduces risks, such as transport delays, limited visibility, and many interdependencies. The lack of supply chain visibility has caused many manufacturers to adopt a reactionary approach at every point of the supply chain - from managing inventory levels to meeting delivery times. So, what can be done?
Streamline Inbound Purchase Order Management
Supply chains are experiencing global disruptions. Capacity constraints and supply delays against growing demands make it challenging to run a profitable, high-performance supply chain while keep costs down. A holistic TMS will enable your team to quickly and easily onboard new suppliers, optimize purchase order flows, control costs, and become resilient.
