Connectivity within the supply chain
Data exchange and automation are game-changing trends in society as a whole but also within the logistics sector. New concepts, such as digital connectivity, interconnection and interoperability, have emerged as disruptive technologies. Your business needs to be efficient and agile to flourish in the ever-changing logistics sector. With hybrid software, you work integrally on all devices, such as PC’s, tablets or handheld devices. By implementing connectivity throughout the entire organisation, you keep your business operations on the right track. The more complex a supply chain is, the quicker the demand for mobility. After all, you cannot keep up with market demands without mobility and connectivity. By implementing mobility and connectivity in your business, you can achieve considerable benefits. In this blog, we get into the possibilities for your business.
Real-time Supply Chain Management
Real-time Supply Chain Management? Mobility and connectivity bring it within arms reach. By employing mobility and connectivity, you easily track and analyse shipments. Starting at the manufacturer, right up to the consumers’ doorstep. Using the Portals, your partners can execute various actions from any device, such as procurement, communication, and acting on fluctuating circumstances. They have real-time insight into some relevant areas of your ERP, warehouse and Transport Management Systems. The Cloud acts as a storage unit for exchanged data and as a place to cooperate with the entire supply chain. Because of this way of working, the professionals within your supply chain can do what is necessary for efficiency, from an office, a warehouse, a manufacturing hall or home.
Connectivity in the warehouse
In your warehouse, connectivity and integration of systems result in insight into inventory. Do you wish to be more productive with fewer employees? A single warehouse employee with a handheld device can directly complete several processes. He can do this with the simple push of a button, saving much time. The mobile app by Adaption is integrable with Zebra scanners, barcodes and printers. Do you want to make real-time decisions? Improve productivity and the accuracy of your inventory? Link your systems to handheld devices, and you will also have these benefits.
Connectivity in transport
Mobile innovation makes a growing difference in the transport sector. Before, there was only contact once a shipment was delivered or when a problem occurred. Today, it is very different. Shippers and lorry drivers communicate in real-time through their mobile devices. By combining the analytical capabilities of the systems, the most efficient route is planned. It also enables you to act on any incidents if they occur and thereby increases the odds of on-time delivery.
Benefit from the possibilities of mobile connectivity
Mobile solutions integrated with AI functionalities with your logistic software systems help you gain and maintain control over your logistic activities. After all, the supply chain is becoming more complex, competitive and the demands are increasing. Logistic businesses have no other choice but to manage their supply chain activities as efficiently as possible. Using a hybrid solution makes sure that all the links within your organisation, and your partners’, are always connected. That way, you have real-time insight at all times into the current situation and, you can directly act if necessary.
