Step 3, Operational Visibility and Insight, is the third and final step of your digitisation journey. With a stable foundation of automated data entry and robust, widespread process automation, you can now use your end-to-end data flow to see how your supply chain fits together, and identify which bits don’t work as well as they should.
In order to do this, you’ll need a way of viewing the information that makes sense – we’ve built a product that just does that. It’s called Windscreen.
You can find out more about Windscreen here, but in essence, it presents you with a real-time view of your supply chain status, with a focus on preventative action. For example, if a delivery from your warehouse was late leaving, and it’s now due to arrive after your customer has left for the day, Windscreen will flag this up as a resolvable problem. And it will do so to the person who is responsible for solving the issue.
Only now can you rise above the minutiae of daily activities and get a sense of where to focus your business development projects moving forward.
