Supply Chain Innovation Summit 2018

18 – 20 September 2018, Pullman Melbourne on the Park, Australia

Becoming elastic, integrated and customer-centric in the ecommerce era
Customers are increasingly dictating how companies structure their supply chains. With the rise of online shopping customers can now shop anywhere, anytime and expect more gratifying and enjoyable experiences from retailers. Recent statistics have shown that multichannel shoppers spend nearly 50% more each year.

However, meeting the multichannel consumer’s increasing expectations for speed and convenience (at low/no added cost) is causing unprecedented sector disruption, globally. In a truly global and digitalized market place where end to end customer engagement is becoming a given, it is vital that supply chain leaders understand how they can evolve their operations, processes and systems to better meet their customers’ expectations.

A recent McKinsey supply chain report ranked increased customer demand volatility and increasing customer expectations as the top 2 current challenges for organisations’ from a supply chain perspective. Furthermore, increasing pressure from global competition is ranked as the top challenge for supply chains over the coming 5 years. Without an effective online supply chain strategy in place, Australian retailers run the risk of losing out to local and overseas competitors.

Attend this practical summit and learn how to:

  • Integrate emerging technology into your supply chain operations
  • Leverage predictive analytics to drive responsiveness, elasticity and integration across your entire supply chain
  • Reengineer your operating model to improve efficiency and become truly customer centric
