EDGE

It’s been said that nowadays, it’s not that companies compete so much as their supply chains do, and you are only as good as the partners you work with. In the November issue of EDGE, we look at the supply chain as a competitive differentiator. Research has demonstrated that a failure to excel at supply chain technology has a significant impact both on profits and shareholder value, and corporations need to improve their processes. Because such systems are enormously complex and global in nature, we will de-mystify the technology. We will look at how software can be used to improve the flow of goods, the management of inventory and the ability to collaborate with your suppliers. And we will also emphasize how Canadian companies need to look at their supply chains if they are to compete in a global economy.
