How Social is Your Supply Chain (and Who Really Cares)?

Deb Miller writes a very lengthy and insightful article at CMS Wire about how supply chains use technology to better collaborate. Social media is the big next step in business growth.

Social Networking is Still Networking

Nearly 80 percent of maturing social businesses analyze social data, and 67 percent integrate it into systems to inform business decisions. Such information can further help supply chains toward their goal of the “perfect order,” where the right product is delivered in full, on time, every time. Automation can only take a business so far, as it cannot account for disruptions, but social tools can give you much faster and more direct alerts. TEVA Pharmaceuticals was able to cut manufacturing time by 40 percent when it replaced outdated ERP apps with social tools. Miller predicts that social tools are here to stay in business, and their use will continue to spread. This notion is supported by the fact that supply chain surveys found a 10 percent increase in the impact of social tools in supply chains over just a two-year period.
