Companies adopting demand-driven supply chains typically enjoy increased sales, reduced operating expenses and improved working capital.
A few key benefits of demand-driven supply chains
One study by Gartner found that organisations with integrated, demand-driven supply chains grow revenue faster, achieve more than 15 percent higher ‘perfect’ order rates and reduce inventory levels by as much as 33 percent.
In another KPMG study, companies with real-time access to data on physical and financial flows were far more likely to be in the top industry quartile for revenue growth and margin.
Fuelled by the fast pace of technology, customer demands are becoming more extreme by the day.
