IT Strategies – The application of today’s technologies to support the current and future needs of supply chain operations is a significant challenge to any organization. These technologies address internal application silos, the integration of these silos, the integration of the enterprise applications with those of your trading partners (supply chain integration), and gaining visibility and management capabilities to supply chain events. tkr Consulting Associates can help turn problems into solutions.
Supply Chain Execution Best Practices Assessment – It is imperative for an organization to understand how its supply chain execution capabilities compare against best practices for its industry and competition. With this information coupled with customer/market needs, an enterprise can formulate a strategy to improve its capabilities in incremental, yet coordinated, steps. tkr Consulting Associates has proven assessment and strategy development methodologies that we can apply in your cause.
