Technology Across the Supply Chain: Competitive advantage or balance sheet burden?

In its latest published research, Technology Across the Supply Chain, Analytiqa conducted an extensive survey, speaking to over 100 supply chain and IT directors in leading companies across Eastern and Western Europe.

After benchmarking the leading technology providers and implementers by system type (process, inventory, warehouse and transport management systems) and geography (Eastern and Western Europe) the research identifies customer satisfaction with their technology systems and partners. The report then analyses the impact that software providers, implementers, location (geography) and industry market sectors have on the market dynamics, including investment strategies and timescales for future change.

Playing a unique role as both provider and customer of supply chain technology solutions, the research examines third party logistics providers, their levels of interaction with both technology companies and their clients together with the quality and variety of services that they are now asked to perform. Finally, the research quantifies future trends for technology in the logistics sector, including the use of mobile technology and RFID, together with the priorities for future technology investment.

At all times, the research was placed in the context of modern logistics operations. These include the consolidation of supply chain structures to cost-efficient locations, moves towards process based working and the globalisation of supply chains.
