Addressing the Supplier to Retail Distribution Paradigm - Information is the New “Oil” (Green Beacon Solutions)
Retailers have discovered that by shifting the responsibility of ensuring that the right products, arrive at the right locations, at the right time, in the right quantities back to their suppliers/distributors, they drive growth and ensure profitability. Unfortunately, many suppliers/distributors are hampered by a lack of visibility throughout key areas of the organization and limited access to data resulting in slow or ineffective decision-making. Leadership organizations recognize this challenge and are striking oil and refining it into success by leveraging solutions that deliver an unbroken information flow throughout the organization to facilitate timely, strategic decision-making. Green Beacon Solutions will discuss available options for streamlining automation and improving communications for improving supplier/distributor productivity that deliver strong inventory management and fulfillment services for improving customer satisfaction.
