Supply chains have become more complex over the years, with an increase in the number of fulfillment and delivery options available to customers supported by a highly fragmented web of global partners producing or supplying materials. Supply chains are fragile and require complex coordination across all of the entities to ensure that the ecosystem operates efficiently.
Too many manufacturers and distributors rely on outdated systems for supply chain management; systems often assembled piecemeal, cobbled together, and growing increasingly siloed over time; and systems no longer able to support the requirements of a modern supply chain. These systems—inefficient, nontransparent, and information-poor—put manufacturers and distributors at a competitive disadvantage.
KPMG and e2open have established a strategic alliance relationship to help companies digitally transform their supply chains with solutions that can better anticipate demand, plan production and fulfillment, optimize transportation, and provide visibility and control across multiple tiers of the wide-ranging supply chain.
