BEST SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE Supply chains are one of those things that years ago people thought “that’s only something really big companies have to deal with.” That is not the case anymore and having a well-managed supply chain is all the more critical for medium or small companies that do not have a large margin for error before facing financial ruin. Choosing great supply chain management software is a key component of a well-managed supply chain because of how automated and integrated things have become in the modern era. There are many to choose from and it can be a challenge, but after reading this article we hope you will have the knowledge to find one that will help your company the most. Agood starting point for determining what software is best for you is the Supply Chain Operations Reference Model (SCOR), which provides a comprehensive overview of the processes, performance metrics, practices, and other functionality needed for your operations. Industry experts say that after companies determine their SCOR, most of them are pointed toward a cloud-based solution as the best option. Cloud solutions are easy to scale and easy to maintain, plus they can be replicated to multiple sites to provide resilience. They also mean basically avoiding the big capital expenses involved in purchasing servers and upgrading hardware for a solution that is not cloud-based. 10 SINCERUS SOLUTIONS | RECRUITING & STAFFING SOLUTIONS
