A cloud supply chain is a system that enables the management of every aspect of the supply chain from any place using any web-enabled device.
Cloud-based tools such as supply chain intelligence, logistics solutions, and warehouse management provide companies with increased visibility and optimization capabilities for managing and scaling the entire supply chain.
Here are specific ways cloud computing is changing supply chain management:
📌 Accelerate manufacturing cycle times by eliminating delays. For example, companies can access real-time data from the production cycle and lend improvement where needed.
📌 Guarantee high supplier standards and raw material quality through real-time updates on shipment checks and quality levels.
📌 Use automation to streamline compliance and reporting that reduces productivity. For example, generating data using a cloud-based application can save significant time and provide a competitive advantage.
