Migrating To Centralized ERP Solutions Is Key To Be Competitive
Biggest challenge in technology to meet the challenges of logistics sector
Our biggest challenge is the coherent consolidation of the various technology platforms to deliver solutions from both internal and customer view. While there are effective off-the shelf systems that provide the software we need as a component basis (such as Red Prairie, SAP, EDI, billing, transportation, business warehouse, etc.), each touch point where they interface can be a potential for a failure or breakdown. We would like to see our vendors provide truly seamless integration.
Technologies that give competitive edge within the logistics sector
We have great software for basic or black box functions, but these systems are also available to our competitors. Making these various systems work together and understanding how each system can enhance our business is what differentiates us and this will continue to be a constant challenge. We need to remain flexible because our customers continually change their models and increase their demands of their logistics providers. Additionally, as many large customers are migrating to centralized ERP solutions our ability to interface easily and add value to their investments is a key to being competitive. We need to utilize our software to give our customers a total view of their supply chain. In that regard, data mining/reporting would be a big benefit for our clients. Our data and transparency sets us apart from our competitors.
Several pain points within the enterprise for which solutions do not exist yet and if existed would make your job easier
The key to our success is how we utilize the technology – which is driven by people. Technology is only as good as the people who understand it. Making people realize what it is we have and how it can be used in a standardized solution to its full potential is the differentiator. That is true for IT and, more importantly, the organization as a whole. So how to be able to continue to recruit and retain top notch people is what keeps me up at night.
