SINGAPORE, January 29, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- EBI Consultancy, a successful provider of high quality commercial, management and supply chain consulting services in Asia, shares their expertise in the use of high-technology supply chain tools and what businesses could do to cope up with these trends, in a blog post released on January 18, 2013.
They have listed down three (3) important tools for improving the reliability of the supply chain by increasing the visibility of goods scattered across the network through a better flow of information and using technology to improve the supply chain process.
EBI stated that "In today's global era, an organisation's supply chain is no longer limited to its premises. It comprises a host of partners and dependencies scattered across various geographies. The complexity of the supply chain and unpredictability of demand, makes it difficult for organisations to deliver quality goods on time."
"Although Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems help in this task, achieving a total visibility requires the use of additional tools. Installing modern technology tools in different combinations not only improves visibility, but also increases its efficiency."
Jan-Willem Adrian, Managing Partner of EBI Consultancy said "Using the right tools and techniques help determine what business processes to improve and how to enhance the productivity. At EBI, we do not only depend on business tools to work for our client's supply chain operations, we also make sure that we deliver high-quality solutions for their business, so that they will be able to make the best decisions now and in the future."
EBI further discussed that these three tools, The Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), The Global Positioning System (GPS) and The Electronic Procurement Systems (EPS) are what companies should use to enhance the visibility and to track goods. By usinmg technology properly, the entire chain is tracked right from vendors up till the delivery locations; barcodes to track the movement of goods within a location, and to track the bulk movement of goods between different fulfilment centres. "Companies, which focus on technology and analytics, and build their supply chain information & decision systems using these, will be able to render significantly higher quality of service at a fraction of the cost, both in terms of manpower requirement as well as other overheads."
