Streamlined Workflow Processes
As well as increasing operational efficiency, supply chain automation can reduce costs, increase productivity and improve accuracy. Effectively, the concept uses technology to manage the flow of data into, out of and around your organisation.
Supply chain automation is the next natural step once you have streamlined workflow processes in house. Once you have identified which aspects of production, shipping or order management tie up valuable time, require excessive manual input or carry considerable cost, the next step is to find a means or removing or reducing these hurdles. The key areas for supply chain automation include:
- Electronic transmission of orders and invoicing
- Order fulfilment and stock updates
- Distribution and logistics
- Manufacturing processes
- Applying bulk actions to data volumes
- Data transfer between systems
Whilst automating your internal systems may be relatively straightforward, the optimum situation is achieving good communicate with your customers and suppliers. However, those businesses will undoubtedly be using a host of different systems for their own purposes. So, integrating with them and moving data electronically is not always that simple.
