Supply Chain Automation
What is supply chain automation?
Increased risks of supply chain disruptions, labor shortage, knock-on effect from human mistakes in order fulfilment, and growing customer expectations all drive the adoption of supply chain automation. Among the core functionality of supply chain analytics solutions are real-time visibility into the supply chain and triggering actions when certain conditions are met for streamline execution of time-consuming tasks, as well as advanced supply chain analytics and forecasting. These capabilities are supported by technologies like IoT, RFID or barcode systems, AI, and AR.
