The supply chain is a booming sector and is an essential and unavoidable player in today's industrial companies. But how to stand out in such a competitive and dynamic market? 


Each supply chain must be thought of as a whole: a huge number of players are involved, which makes it complex to manage, where each step is important to be able to achieve increased performance. 


This strategic approach necessarily involves a digitalization of its supply chain, which will have a positive impact on the whole. 


Digitizing the monitoring of its transport and logistics performance means benefiting from numerous advantages: 


  1. Increase customer satisfaction


One of the best objectives reflecting the success of your supply chain is to increase the level of customer satisfaction, which must be higher than the competition. Indeed, if your delivery processes become more efficient, it is customer service that is positively impacted. Therefore, this factor should be your number 1 KPI to monitor and will help you identify sources of dissatisfaction. 


Maximizing your rotations, Monitoring your deliveries in real time, Knowing the immediate availability of your capacities will allow you to reduce delivery times and ensure better compliance with schedules.


  1. Operational Productivity


Tracking performance is often equivalent to creating pivot tables in Excel and macros. In a situation where your objective is to manage the whole activity, having a collaborative tool for data retrieval and calculation is a must. 


The pre-checked information from the data visualisation software offers analysts considerable time savings in their reporting work. Previously time-consuming tasks are completed more quickly through automated, real-time calculations. Thanks to the use of adapted tools, you can now devote yourself to the action plan to set up for each subject, rather than spending your day collecting information. 


  1. Reduce operating costs


In order to obtain an ideal fleet size, it is necessary to analyze the overall performance and then by activity of its fleet, taking into account seasonality and the evolution of orders. 


A centralized cloud tool allows you first to analyze your fleet utilization and then to invest optimally according to the conclusion obtained (increase the investment or reduce it to do more with less). Drastically reducing operating costs means a fast and high ROI. The optimization of the routes will indeed make it possible to place the human and material resources at the right place and at the right time. This optimization therefore makes it possible to reduce the company's vehicle fleet later on.
