Alto Consulting offers services for supply chain as well. Supply chain management integrates and co-ordinates producers, suppliers, transactions and storage providers so that services and goods are manufactured and distributed at the right time, at the right place and in the right quantity. This helps in minimising costs all over the system, enhances the benefits for customers and standards of service.
With the fast speed of today’s business, several organisations feel that their network of distribution does not support their business as it should. Organisations of today can not operate in their individual concern at the cost of their partners in the supply chain.
Several organisations remain hesitant to put together with their partners of supply chain. They list privacy, competitive concerns and security as reasons for not integrating. The type of integration through which visibility into the supply chain is enabled starts with partnership, which relies only on people and not on the organisation.
The terms supply chain management and logistics are frequently used synonymously. Like logistics, supply chain management is concerned with streamlining flows of objects such as information, goods and values from one stage to another, along with the intention of enhancing the benefits of customers and also improving the cost to benefit ratio all over the system.
