Supply Chain Management Review May 1, 2006


There is no surer way to make hyperextended global supply chain managers roll their eyes back into their heads and move on to their next emergency than to tell them that they need advanced technology tools because they are so cool, or because they are fun, or sexy. What these people care about, above all other issues, is profitability—where to find it and how to create it.

Profitably can be enhanced in any number of ways. But one of the most rewarding and direct avenues is through technology. Properly selected and applied to supply management, technology can be a prime profitability lever—a key that can unlock the vault.
