)-- To-Increase, a provider of retail and Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) built on Microsoft Dynamics technology, shares its analysis on the evolution of retail supply chain management in the new blog post "Retail Supply Chain Management: A Trip To Its Future & Past."
As populations expand, and goods continue to travel, retailers find themselves in a position where they must continuously adapt and improve their supply chain management practices to remain competitive. And an underlying question will always be, "what supply chain management advancements are most important to take advantage of today?"
"Overall, there is no single, recent retail supply chain advancement that comes to my mind as the most important," writes Guido van Osch, Global Industry Director, To-Increase. "Retailers have become more aware of the fact that both on the sourcing and on the sales side there is a lot to gain. And fortunately, there are several solutions available that can help them achieve this gain."
Van Osch goes on to discuss how several advancements can help retailers improve retail and supply chain management operations, including:
· Mobile technology
· Integrated Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems
· Social media integrated with Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
"Regardless of the solutions they implement, retailers will have to pay more and more attention on how to handle the flow of goods efficiently, at a lower cost, and with a higher service level," concludes van Osch.
