Beware Supply Chain Excel Users — You Are Doomed!!!!

By Khudsiya Quadri, Technology Evaluation Center blog

I believe the extensive use of Excel in the supply chain industry is due to the relationship business users have developed with Excel. This relationship cannot last long if an organization wants to be competitive and profitable because Excel cannot fulfill the core demands of a supply chain organization. Due to the globalization and dynamic nature of today's business, it is necessary to have applications that provide visibility, control, collaboration, real-time data sharing among trading partners, and security for optimal supply chain results.
