Design omni-channel distribution

New purchase practices have been experienced by consumers since the development of distance retail channels especially through internet with the e-commerce assumption. Omni-channel distribution plays with a cross-channel ordering and fulfillment process, which erases the distinction between online and offline shops. Nevertheless, when offline and online channels need to be fused, the whole supply chain network has to be thought over again and reorganized to match the best to the customer needs while keeping a full overview of the stocks spread through the different channels.

Develop a supply chain organization

Companies need to see the supply chain as a necessary tactical tool for their organization. Consequently the supply chain has become a strategic asset for the companies who seek to implement fundamental strategies and to build an effective and robust supply chain. Our current economic context tends to move from a transactional economy to relation based economy. This is why organization patterns are changing and both the customers and suppliers are now ready to share information. There are no more one-sided profits, only win-win situations.

Manage complexity in supply chain

We live in an interesting time; as on the one hand the existing supply chains of the organization are ending their life cycle and on the other hand, globalization and information technology are enabling the emergence of new forms of supply chain that are adapted to operating in a so called VUCA world of volatility, uncertainty and rapid change driven by innovation. As a result today we can see much more complexity in the supply chains, thus affecting the total cost of the organization. Companies, these days, are focusing more on how to deal with this new form of complexity so they can respond to it profitably.
