Why is SCM 2.0 Important?
SCM 2.0 facilitates deployment and synchronization of new enterprise
services in hours and days, not months and years – delivering
immediate value to the organization and your trading
partners. Whether you are trying to improve inventory
accuracy, offer new valued-added services, optimize shipment
routing, enhance workforce efficiency, or simply synchronize billing
with activities, 7Hills Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) deployment
combined with our agile web service-based features of the eBizNET-SC
fit perfectly into the SCM 2.0 ecosystem.
So why is a "2.0” relevant to you? Simple - "2.0" approaches move us away from a “one-way” static world of exchange and toward an interactive multi-participant ecosystem allowing continuous and relevant feedback and refinement of ideas – an ecosystem that is perfectly suited for realizing more value from your enterprise supply chain. With the ease of adding an interactive map, news feed, or blog to your personal web page, you can now add supply chain capabilities to your enterprise with eBizNet on-demand services – allowing you to sell better, ship faster, and improve customer service all at reduced cost.
Organizations who wish to increase their level of responsiveness to unique and demanding customer requests will benefit substantially from the 7Hills SCM 2.0 approach.
Supply chain solution infrastructures have become unwieldy, inflexible, and unresponsive, due in part to the use of dated, legacy technology, monolithic software application development, and custom developed point-to-point interfaces.
- Today’s large enterprise faces substantial challenges to quickly harness the value of industry innovations while, at the same time, maintaining the mission-critical foundations of their backbone solutions.
- Today’s smaller enterprises, who must stay ever lean and agile to be competitive, cannot afford to spend millions over an extended period of time just to keep up, which in today’s competitive world, will not suffice.
These challenges dramatically impact your total cost of ownership (TCO), return on investment (ROI) and capital expenditure rate.
SCM 2.0 helps address these challenges, offering innovative
software and services
which are easily accessible on-demand to the larger company’s
supply chain, while also providing a wide range of agile,
on-demand core backbone capabilities
for the smaller enterprise needs.
In fact, many businesses, large and small, begin to derive value from the 7Hills SCM 2.0 componentized services days after an engagement begins, improving the planning, execution, and overall management of their inventory, facilities, and workforce while also enhancing their ability to effortlessly collaborate with their customers and suppliers.
