Key conclusions from the report show:
Ben Pivar, Senior Vice President and head of North America Supply Chain Technologies at Capgemini said: “It’s clear that given the growth of multi-channel complexities, it’s time for industries to consider the impacts that these requirements place on their businesses. Manufacturers should consider following retailers in embracing the new multi-channel reality by evaluating up-sell and cross-sell opportunities across product lines to create a consistent and profitable customer experience across all channels. In order to truly make this work, manufacturers need to consider how to integrate multi-channel requirements throughout their supply chain operations.”
Jennifer Sherman, Senior Director of Applications Strategy, at Oracle said: “Value chain integration is a long-term trend and there is an urgent need for more collaborative planning and execution. The threats of volatility and change in the marketplace can be mitigated by the existence of an agile and scalable supply chain platform. Businesses need to consider investing in a technology platform to create a centralized view and single face to the customer and to ease the adoption of new business processes without mandating a replacement of existing supply chain execution systems.” Capgemini in collaboration with Oracle offers customer-centric solutions to help manage supply chain complexity across major sectors from retail to manufacturing.
