Top 10 SCM Consulting/Service Companies - 2020

Today, the effective implementation of supply chain management (SCM) is one of the critical factors for an organization’s success. From manufacturers to final sellers, the current supply chain has grown vast and complicated. Furthermore, with the rise of e-commerce, customer requests for rapid supply have skyrocketed, making it even worse for organizations to manage their SCM processes. This is where supply chain technologies come into the picture. With the advent of modern technologies like artificial intelligence, the internet of things, cloud computing, and blockchain, the face of SCM is continually evolving. From acquiring raw materials to production, shipments, and final delivery, SCM today largely relies on digital technologies that help increase productivity and efficiency.

While the permeation of technology has undoubtedly enhanced the efficiency of the supply chain worldwide, as compared to a decade or two ago, several traditional challenges that inundated the realm continue to be relevant even today, these include accurately engineering services that cater to the tastes of each customer as well as foreseeing and eliminating risks before they become critical. Enterprise leaders have started to realize over the years that the failure to forecast risks or hurdles could spell doom for their business, and the need of the hour is seeking advice from supply chain experts. As a result, retail and e-commerce companies are seeking SCM consulting firms to help them make the most of their SCM technology tools and satisfy their customers’ demands. Looking ahead, SCM will become a truly seamless process with automated processes replacing manual tasks, technologies analyzing customer behavior to predict an upcoming surge in product demands, and more. And with disruptive technological advancing at a breakneck pace, that future is not too far.
