Creating added value in an existing business strategy is easier said than done. Many mature industries in both manufacturing and trade have for decades been optimising their processes and flows. Nevertheless, there is one area where there is often still great potential for development - Supply Chain. Streamlining the supply chain is often about integrating fragmented or outdated systems and automating manual steps. The result - with efficient Supply Chain you can look forward to increased values in the business.
Integration provides digital flow
The fact that different systems do not talk to each other is a not uncommon problem in many companies. IT infrastructure tends to grow over time, as existing functions expand and new features come into being. Finally, you sit with an arrangement that is both sprawling and inefficient. One solution to this problem is to integrate the different subsystems so that the information can flow freely in real time and thus create digital flow. Information that is always up to date makes it easier to produce business documents based on accurate data. You and your organization become better demanders towards your suppliers, which in turn has a positive impact on both costs and schedules. Similarly, operational management becomes more efficient when management has accurate and up-to-date decision-making data.
Scale away manual work
It is surprising how much manual work is still being done in Swedish companies in 2021, just because there is a lack of integration between different systems. Countless working hours are spent copying and moving information between order systems, mail programs, reports and logistics systems, for example. And not only is this mechanical work ineffective, it also increases the risk of errors due to the human factor. A date that is reversed or a sum put in the wrong place can cause a lot of trouble. By automating manual operations, employees can instead spend their time on tasks that can help develop the business.
The best integration is cloud-based
So what is the best model for integrating the supply chain? A local solution that you manage and control yourself or a cloud solution at a supplier? Without a doubt, the cloud solution is the option that is the most sustainable over time and also the most cost-effective. With a cloud solution, you get an architecture where you share development costs and operations with others, which provides efficient resource use. The fact that you also always have updated software versions and do not have to spend time managing the integration solution locally is another plus. And a fixed monthly cost provides predictability and control.
Tyringe streamlines supply chain
Hand on heart – how many hours a week do you sit with manual work that could be automated? Every hour that could be used for value creation work is lost, when the employee manually sits and moves information between different systems. Machines are both better and cheaper at this routine work.
