With the unpredictability of today’s market and the digital transformation that has been taking place across the industries, B2B cloud integration has become vital for building resilient, prepared, and responsive supply chains.
The Covid-19 pandemic revealed the insufficiency of visibility in supply chains due to shortcomings of integration technologies. Even though 9 out of 10 businesses believe end-to-end visibility to be of great importance, only 50% of businesses can currently access and utilise information about their supply chain as a means to obtain business insights.
At the same time, the e-commerce boost has brought about a digital transformation. Keeping this in mind — as well as the need to rapidly adjust to market change — centralising all processes through B2B cloud integration is vital.
To clarify the benefits of B2B cloud integration in today’s supply chain ecosystem, Meili Robots discusses 5 ways in which B2B cloud integration can help create more resilient supply chains:
- The Optimisation of Data Management
- The Improvement of Supply Chain Visibility & Agility
- The Prevention of Further Disruption
- The Elimination of Onboarding Challenges
- The Establishment of Stronger Ecosystem Partnerships
A resilient supply chain focuses on three goals: supply chain optimisation, demand-driven supply, and supply chain visibility. B2B cloud integration allows businesses to centralise all of their processes, tools, and systems in one place. This way, they are provided with a full overview of their entire supply chain at all times. Now, businesses can better understand their operations, enabling them to make more informed decisions.
