How Organizations Can See Past Supply Chain Blindspots

When a symphony is performed, the music is only delivered well when the finished work is conducted with precise rhythm, balance, and accuracy. When the conductor guides each of their musicians towards collaborating and creating beautiful music, only then will the audience enjoy what they are listening to. As a symphony requires a conductor, the supply chain world also requires precise rhythm, balance, accuracy, and collaboration to achieve a successful outcome. This is where Digital Process Orchestration comes in.

Digital Process Orchestration involves bringing together the uncovering of tribal processes, the confluence of disparate systems, and the illumination of blind spots to conduct a comprehensive end-to-end business workflow that organizations can trust to achieve their business objectives.

By reimagining outdated processes and fostering a culture of acceptance for digitized decision-making, Digital Process Orchestration enables businesses to process the immense amount of data involved in supply chain planning, while creating transparency, and breaking down silos between teams. Supporting the positive impacts of Digital Process Orchestration, Gartner research shows that overcoming siloed organizational structures and legacy technologies are two of the top five biggest challenges to digitally transforming supply chains today, which are both directly addressed by Digital Process Orchestration.

As supply chain consultants, we frequently witness organizations engaging in time-consuming planning processes that are ultimately disregarded by the execution teams due to a lack of feasibility. However, Digital Process Orchestration provides a solution to this challenge by offering an evaluation and decision-making process that enables enterprises to measure and react to execution control processes in real-time. This is one of the most significant benefits of Digital Process Orchestration, as it allows organizations to make informed decisions and adjust their plans in response to changing circumstances. This is quite the departure from a supply chain visibility platform that just tells you where your container is at any given moment!

By focusing on processes first and using minimally invasive technology, blind spots can be eliminated, enabling holistic decision-making, and giving you direct access to contextual decision-making data. At the heart of our Digital Process Orchestration approach is a focus to connect processes, systems and people along workflows, using existing technology where appropriate.

Don't let the blind spots in your supply chain planning hold you back any longer. Avoid the outdated “rip and replace” approach and instead focus on overcoming end-to-end challenges throughout your operations. Our approach not only provides our clients with minimal disruptions to their current operations, but it will also enable you to finally achieve the precise rhythm, balance, and accuracy needed for a successful supply chain.

Reach out to us today to discuss how we can help you improve your execution control processes and transform your supply chain performance, taking your organization to new heights of efficiency and competitiveness.
