May 4, 2020 Casey Nighbor

Recent events have shown a light on the importance of the supply chain.

Without a strong supply chain, operations face a domino effect of problems. You may be questioning if you operation can keep up.

Learn some key ways to improve your supply chain this year.

Identify risks

As markets shift and the supply chain changes, it’s important to stay on top of your key suppliers. You should be contacting those suppliers and learning of any potential risks as well as communicating that they should reach out immediately if any new disruptions occur.

You should also begin identifying alternate suppliers or possible substitutions if a disruption were to occur.

Technology gains

Most operations have the right technologies in place to collect data on things like machine conditions, demand forecasting and overall supply chain health. The challenge is analyzing the vast amount of data that’s collected and transforming it into actionable insights.

It's also finding ways to optimize the efficiency at all levels of your operation. Staff Management | SMX uses Stafftrack to not only analyze your operation but use the data to improve processes.

Quickly scale

Being able to adapt and scale quickly up or down is critical to success.

Being onsite means you have a higher level of support and flexibility should the unexpected happen with your supply chain.

The future of your supply chain

Strategic investments can foster growth and monetize your fulfillment and distribution operations. A cost per unit model can help you achieve improvement within your supply chain quickly.
