Supply Chain Innovation – The ProConnect Way

June 9, 2021 BlogTechnology

Innovation is the development of new customer value through solutions that meet new needs, unarticulated needs, or old customer & market needs in new ways. Supply chain innovation is not equal to invention or improvements but doing things differently.

Supply chain and innovation might seem like two different activities, but in fact, they generate significant interaction. When it comes to supply chain innovation, we generally mean improvements in the way that supply chains operate. More specifically, in the way that products, information, work, and funds flow (and are temporarily stored) throughout supply chains. Once a product is designed, the supply chain comes into source materials, manufactures the product, and gets it to the market. As products move through the four life cycle phases, successful supply chain services are flexible enough to react to the rapidly changing needs.

Innovations in logistics have the right benefits both in times of crisis and well-being. They allow to reduce costs, better use of resources and faster response times, and hence the faster response of companies to the ever-changing market conditions. At ProConnect, the use of information technology in supply chain management provides improved visibility, accountability & flexibility to our customers.
