By the assistance of modern internet based software and technologies, ABC will be successful in simplifying the process of supply while dramatically reducing the errors of shipment. Software such as FlashView will be enabling the business for consolidating each and every aspect of the supply chain. The key software will be allowing ABC for the digital organization of inventory data, ensuring to manage and monitor the information of tracking and shipping. This will further ensure the creation of electronic invoices with simplicity. Because of the increased utilization of information technologies for the supply chain, there can be a significant reduction in the duration spent to compile, track, receive, and ship order data, for saving both money and time (Trkman et al., 2010). Not only there will be an improvement in the operational efficiency, but also there will be a significant enhancement of consumer experience by the provision of ability to them for continuously tracking the status regarding each and every order. By the digitalization of tracking system, there can be a significant reduction in errors of shipment, while rapidly responding to each and every error taking place.
By reduction in the links of the supply chain, ABC will be successful in lowering the risks in association with receiving and shipment. Provided with the contingency of global trade on factors like weather, natural disasters, and economic collapse, and international border security, the simplification of suppliers to the restricted number of manufacturers should be ensured. This is crucial for the improvement of efficiency and reliability of the supply chain, while reducing the vulnerability of business towards the unforeseen disaster (Wagner and Neshat, 2010). There is the simplification of supply chain and disposition of links that are unnecessary, so there can be an improvement in efficiency and reduction in expenditures. While performing direct work with the manufacturers whenever there is a possibility, there must be purchases from an intermediary source. By performing work with the manufacturers directly, there can be a significant reduction in expenses and creation of more efficient and simpler chain of supply.
After the complete production and curing of the product, there is storage of final goods at a big warehouse as a massive heap of stock. On the requirement of dispatch, its movement is initiated across the conveyer belts and hence is transferred to the dispatch centre. Being extremely seasonal by nature, there may be continuity of production throughout the year along with the piled stock of product for delivery. The employees are enabled for the immediate correction of mistakes. In addition, this will be crucial for consistent and easier tracking for having maximum visibility and control across the product ranges at all points of time. Since the chips will be providing scope for computerized management of product, there will be an elimination of the potential to make errors, while simplifying the supply chain and reducing the costs of operation. Moreover, there is significant scope in the utilization of social media for the purpose of streamlining the chain of supply.
