View the Meeting The Challenges Of Multi-Site Warehouse & Order Management Demo
How to Meet Customer Requirements While Lowering Logistics Costs
As supply chains become increasingly more global in nature the ability to effectively manage a network of distribution centers is more and more essential. Unfortunately, a surprisingly high number of companies that currently practice multi-site distribution are experiencing real challenges that impact profitability. In a recent survey of multi-site distributors, the Aberdeen Group found that almost two thirds of companies report that their operations are moving in the WRONG direction-costs have risen and customer service has declined.
Does this sound familiar?
Then plan to attend this webcast where Ian Hobkirk, Senior Analyst with Aberdeen's Logistics practice, will highlight the results of their "Technology Strategies for Multi-Site Warehouse and Order Management" report. He will detail how Best in Class companies are using technologies like Distributed Order Management, Supply Chain Visibility, and Multi-Site Warehouse Management to achieve superior levels of service while maintaining comparatively low levels of inventory. Ian Hobkirk will show how these companies have measurably better performance than companies that address the problem without building out their visibility and execution tools.
Our speakers will highlight new strategies and systems for optimizing execution and improving supply chain visibility and control across a multi-warehouse environment. These include a range of supply chain solutions that automate yard and dock processes across multiple warehouses-all aimed at boosting productivity, agility and customer service levels.
