Boost bottom line with supply chain analytics

Sponsored by SearchManufacturingERP

The transformation of supply chain management is happening now. IoT is driving that change, but supply chain analytics is instrumental in taming the massive amounts of data generated by IoT sensors, devices and objects and turning it into insight -- and into a competitive edge. Smart companies recognize this.

Take The Bouqs Company, a flower retailer delivering straight from farms. The company has created a supply-driven, farm-to-table, eco-friendly model literally built on the capabilities of supply chain analytics. This includes reducing the typical waste of the flower industry by only cutting flowers when a customer places an order.

In the first part of this three-part supply chain analytics handbook, you'll get more detail on how companies, such as The Bouqs Company, are using supply chain analytics to grow profits and avert costly mistakes. In the second article, you'll learn why and how IoT sensor technology is changing supply chain management forever. And, in the third, you will discover how to navigate the complex supply chain analytics product landscape.
