Jul 24, 2020

Engagement Summary

Supply chain management (SCM) – the active management of all supply chain activities of any organization – is an important part of any organization. It helps organizations maximize customer value, achieve sustainable competitive advantage, and cut down on costs like production and purchase costs. Like any other process, this process is also prone to risks. Organizations need to take strategic steps to identify, assess, and mitigate risks in the end-to-end supply chain process. Like all industries, the IT supply chain management has its unique challenges. To tackle some of their challenges, a multinational IT company approach Quantzig’s supply chain management experts.
