SCM for Hi-Tech & Manufacturing
Companies contend to provide their customers with world-class, innovative products and services at the lowest cost to succeed in today’s high-tech and manufacturing industry. Poor information management strategies across the extended supply chain - partner connectivity, information consolidation, asynchronous planning, and execution - all pose further risks to achieving business and financial metrics.
To add to this increasing volatility in demand, rising customer expectations, and product proliferation coupled with short product life cycles, environmental regulations, cost control pressure, as well as the ever-widening supply chain’s geographical network.
The strategic focus of Hi-tech and Manufacturing organisations is to develop an effective inter-firm relationship to access the best capabilities globally and collaboratively build products and services. Brand owners select partners for design, technology, manufacturing, logistics, service, and channel management. Multiple participants now share responsibility for critical processes that cannot adequately be managed at arm’s length.
HCL helps synchronise supply chain activity at all levels - expand SCM enablers to drive revenue growth and improve profitability. HCL’s Order to Cash, Procure to Pay and Analytics processes enable organisations to interpret and transform customer demand to the design, sourcing, manufacturing and distribution of products and services seamlessly.
