Control Towers (CTs) free up supply chain decision makers and give them back their time. These comprehensive, cross-functional platforms enable collaborative work across supply chain personas, transforming your business with data-driven decisions. CT's are at the heart of a new model for Supply Chain Management. Visually distinct from traditional ERP systems, this self-organizing structure connects different stakeholders to take performance, innovation, and profitability to new levels.
Manufacturing, Healthcare, CPG, and retail industries are currently facing unprecedented issues in the supply chain that are causing significant disruptions, plant shutdowns, and margin losses.
With the change in customer expectations, the rise of digital channels, and increased competition, the traditional linear model of supply chain (develop, plan, source, make, deliver and support) is no longer sufficient.
Supply chain professionals have several challenges working with people across various functions.
Organizations need to sense supply and demand changes and respond efficiently to these changes.
Your business needs a solution that connects existing technological frameworks and data systems.
Your different organizational silos need a way to interact and collaborate efficiently to solve supply chain problems.
Your supply chain needs to be agile and flexible to respond to supply and demand fluctuations and maintain a competitive edge.
People in your supply chain need a simple user interface that gives them the right data at the right time.
Supply chain leaders need Control Towers to keep up with disruptions and reduce decision-making latency.
