Demand Driven Supply Chain Impacts Productivity According to Ultriva

Ultriva by Upland, the leader in cloud-based collaborative supply chain solutions, described in a recent company blog, how real-time access to demand-driven supply chain is required to improve productivity and profitability. Large global manufacturers recognize the success of the supply chain depends on all parties keeping up-to-date; but two-thirds of manufacturing and distribution professionals report having a hard time keeping everyone up-to-date.

While 79% of manufacturing and distribution professionals report that it important or very important to have anytime access to files and 90% access files outside of the office, nearly half (49%) still struggle with accessing files any time.

• 50% struggle with sharing large files

• 84% are concerned about the security and privacy of files

• 49% feel it is difficult to connect on projects and work collaboratively with others outside the company, such as prospects, customers, suppliers, and partners

The findings, released as part of a workplace study demonstrate a gap in productivity lead to costly errors. The data accessed remotely is not the same among C-level global manufacturers versus contact examined by supply chain managers or purchasing professionals. The ability to access 24/7 real-time SaaS demand driven supply chain data is now a responsibility throughout the enterprise both in avoiding costly errors and strategic decision-making.
