Supply chain managers are facing increasingly complex and wide-ranging competitive challenges. For example, one might gain significant advantage by offering superior supply chain financing to partners, or risk losing key suppliers to a more aggressive competitor.
The panel will focus on better management of working capital and the need for transparency between you and your vendors. The experts will discuss the common supply chain finance issues, and technology options will be assessed. A big box retail case study and other examples will demonstrate how proven approaches can be applied in other industries.
