Supply chain management software (SCMS) is a tool for managing and executing supply chain transactions, from the manufacturer, through to the retailer, before finally reaching the customer. SCM software enables you to enhance business processes related to warehouse and inventory management, delivery and customer service.
Modern SCM systems include SAP Hana and Oracle E-Business Suite, although cloud-based custom supply chain management solutions are becoming increasingly popular. If you want to implement a system that better fits your needs, you can choose between:
- Implementing an existing, out-of-the-box solution with integrations.
- Investing in custom SCM software, created specifically for your company.
As both methods make for suitable business solutions, you should choose one based on your specific needs. The choice depends mostly on your business goals, company size, or the complexity of the supply chain in question.
