E-commerce is empowering consumers of health & beauty and packaged goods with a wide range of options. Not surprisingly, this trend has reached the pharmaceutical industry. Patients can’t choose their prescriptions, but they can decide where they acquire them. Their decision is highly influenced by product availability and price, which make the supply chains even more strategic for all players in these industries. Manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors and retailers have to manage that expectation and volatility in amidst the complex inventory management of perishable produce.
Ensuring products are available at the right price for the consumer is particularly challenging when inefficiency is causing cost-pressures. This requires tight management of distribution partners as well as complete downstream inventory visibility and sophisticated inventory strategies that typically can’t be achieved successfully with unintegrated legacy software.
To keep goods moving safely, efficiently whilst remaining compliant with regulations, stakeholders need visibility into the entire supply chain and continuously optimise transportation, labour, store operations and warehouse management.
Manhattan Active® Supply Chain and Omnichannel solutions optimise your distribution and logistics to improve fulfilment efficiencies and accelerate time-to-market.
