Buff up on Benchmarking with Oliver Wight at the Online Retail Supply Chain Forum 2014
The Online Supply Chain Forum 2014 takes place at Stamford Plaza, Melbourne on 19th to 21st February and will feature an exciting presentation and workshop by Mike Reed of Oliver Wight on the importance of benchmarking the supply chain.
Controlling the supply chain and optimising inventory management results in significant savings to the bottom line and increases the financial health of the company. But, as Reed explains, “Making big decisions without first identifying precisely where your organisation is – in absolute terms and in relation to its competitors and peers – is an extremely risky business.”
Reed’s inspiring presentation ‘Benchmarking to drive improvement of e-tail supply chains’ will address:
· Why it is important to benchmark your supply chain
· What leading e-supply chains do differently
· How to go about supply chain benchmarking
· Learning from data and analytics case examples
In Reed’s workshop, ‘Fundamentals for Supply Chain Optimisation’
“The Australian retail industry and retailers around the world are grappling with the dynamic expectations of techno-savvy customers and how these expectations directly impact the way retailers and their supply chains work to maintain market share. It is fundamental organisations align their people, processes and tools to the overall business plan, if they want to progress along the supply chain journey,” concludes Reed.
