The retail supply chain is becoming more complex. Disruptions have become common: Covid, price increases as a result of the war, shortages on materials and hyperinflation. Both demand and supply are more volatile than ever. These challenges require an agile supply chain. On the other hand, there is an enormous shortage on labour: in warehouses, in transport and in planning departments. This requires a focus on an efficient supply chain. Being agile and efficient at the same time is challenging but possible. Retailers now face a whole new layer of complexity.
So how can retailers satisfy customer expectations and react fast and deliberately when something happens, while keeping supply chain costs under tight control and working as efficient as possible?
Join Peter Bocken, retail director at Slimstock, as he explores how retailers can build more flexible supply chains to:
• Guarantee consistently high levels of on-shelf availability to maximise sales revenue by using better Artificial Intelligence driven forecasts
• Deal earlier and faster with disruption by using automated business rules & scenario’s
• Eliminate waste & cut costs through the entire supply chain by focussing on the end-to-end supply chain and by breaking down internal barriers
Every day, Slimstock supports over 1250 businesses to boost profitability and unlock working capital by improving availability, increasing efficiency, and eliminating waste. In this live presentation, Peter will demonstrate how these businesses are leveraging technology to stay one step ahead of the competition.
