E2open helps retailers face twenty-first century supply chain challenges.
Across every type of retailer, from grocers to convenience stores and eCommerce players, understanding customer behavior and efficiently managing inventories is the key to overcoming razor-thin margins.
To complicate matters, consumer goods companies continue to innovate at a high pace, multiplying the number of SKUs and product variants while shrinking their product lifecycles. Consumers themselves are more fickle than ever, following social media trends in real-time on their smart phones. At the same time the “Amazon effect” has driven up customer expectations in terms of product choice, price comparison, and next-day delivery capabilities. The competition between online and traditional shopping is also prompting retailers to become more fast-paced themselves and explore new models, such as offering omni-channel or drop-ship capabilities.
E2open, working with leading companies, has a range of solutions to address the key supply chain challenges retail companies face.
Many companies have discovered the changes necessary to effectively manage a twenty-first century demand-supply network are largely impossible using existing ERP and SCM solutions, particularly when it comes to applying these solutions’ on-premise technology infrastructures.
E2open has helped leading retailers address these challenges. By leveraging the E2open network and supply chain solutions, they can operate their supply chain in real-time, helping them become much better at sensing demand and therefore responding quicker through better planning and execution with their suppliers.
