Top Executives Talk Real-Time Supply Chain Strategies & Customer Focus
Raleigh, NC — A new executive video by Tompkins International and One Network Enterprises explores why businesses should embrace new demand-driven strategies.
“Companies are looking for realistic ways to reduce uncertainty in forecasting demand while exceeding customer expectations,” says Jim Tompkins, CEO of Tompkins International. “Demand driven is the optimal way to integrate all links of your supply chain for real-time knowledge on customer demand.”
Demand-driven supply chains have positive impacts on top and bottom lines. They create greater customer satisfaction, which leads to a more superior customer experience and ultimately results in more revenue.
“Demand-driven means having a keen focus on the end consumer in today’s marketplace,” says Greg Brady, CEO of One Network Enterprises. “Whether we are talking about a store or a website, it allows you to move beyond the ‘four walls,’ react quickly to changing demand signals, and execute to demand throughout the day.”
What makes it the “new” demand-driven? The customer pulls product through the supply chain, leading organizations to focus on the customer while ensuring efficiency of other components in the supply chain such as throughput, asset utilization, or logistics.
The experts also address:
- How certain strategies and tools reduce the uncertainties of forecasting demand and help mitigate the risks
- How to increase customer satisfaction, handle demand volatility and create value
- How to eliminate physical lead times and lower supply chain costs
- How new solutions best meet the serious challenges of e-commerce
- Why a Cloud-based single platform for your company and its trading partners will benefit your business
