Why You Should Manage Your Supply Chain in the Cloud
Technology may be ever-evolving, but cloud computing is here to stay. The public cloud market is expected to grow to $236 Billion by 2020. Now is the perfect time to transition your supply chain logistics management to the cloud.
Still not convinced that the cloud is the right management tool for your industry? Here are just a few reasons why you should make the switch.
It’s More Flexible
Cloud computing offers a unique flexibility, especially when compared to traditional supply chain management. With cloud computing, you can more easily create processes that allow for scalability, without having to painstakingly re-structure your systems. Likewise, you’re in a better position to respond and adapt to changing trends or disruptions that may come your way.
It’s More Efficient
All around, cloud computing just takes less time than traditional supply chain logistics management. A physical system can take upwards of a few months to install, while cloud systems can take as little as a few weeks. The ease of use of cloud systems also free up more time for your current employees – instead of spending hours on system management, they can dedicate their time to other, more important tasks.
It’s More Accessible
The biggest advantage of cloud computing over physical systems is their accessibility. With traditional supply chain logistics management, your processing power is limited to your on-site servers. With the cloud, that’s no longer an issue – your team can access your system from anywhere. This accessibility allows for more timely collaboration, so team members can access analytics in real time and make plans on the fly.
