How can greater visibility result in a more resilient, cost-effective supply chain?

Welcome to this Meet the Boss event in partnership with Avanade.

The global pandemic has underscored the vital need for today’s companies to build a more resilient and sustainable supply chain. Manufacturing has seen major disruptions in supply chain and workforce, including a shortage of materials and a shrinking labor force.

Leading organizations are now rethinking their business models to adapt to the new reality and prepare for transformation in their business. In the past, that’s meant adding costs by keeping more inventory and building redundant capacity. Research from Avanade shows there is a more cost-effective way to increase supply chain resilience: intelligent visibility. With greater visibility, companies are more likely to maintain revenue, profit, and share-price performance during disruption.

So, how are you utilizing modern ERP to stabilize disruptions in the supply chain? Are you considering automation to offset labor shortages and improve efficiency in your operation? Do you have a reliable insight and forecast into customer requirements?

From the entire team at Meet the Boss and Avanade we look forward to hearing your thoughts and providing you with the right discussions to keep you on course, every course.

We look forward to seeing you in New York!
