Avoid Supply Chain Disruption and Accelerate Your Business With SAP S/4HANA
Today, we are living in the digital economy, a new age of dynamic markets, as such companies need comprehensive access to accurate, real-time information about their enterprise –and about their customers, suppliers, and competitors. With the right information, businesses can be agile enough to produce and distribute personalized products with shorter lead times and smaller runs –even down to a lot size of one –and ensure that they can meet customer demand while keeping costs under control and productivity at its highest. Achieving excellence in this environment requires two important capabilities: visibility into operational, customer, and market data, and speed across the extended supply chain to react to changes in demand and supply and gain competitive advantage.
It is important now more than ever that organizations in the manufacturing and supply chain industry are able to adapt and drive their operations forward during the current global pandemic. Over the past weeks, we have seen a surge in demand for essential products such as toilet paper, hand sanitizer, and cleaning supplies. Implementing SAP S/4HANA for your ERP needs allows businesses to plan and react accordingly to events such as these.
With SAP S/4HANA as the digital core, customers can build a foundation for extended supply chain visibility and speed. SAP S/4HANA allows companies to gain visibility into real-time market conditions and production efforts, and then react to that information with the speed required to deliver products that customers want with the efficiency they need. Any supply or demand change, such as a promotion that generates higher-than-forecasted demand or disruption in supply due to a late delivery, can be quickly propagated up and down the supply chain to detect imbalances as well as simulate alternate scenarios.
