DEVELOPING A MODERN, DIGITAL SUPPLY CHAIN PLATFORM TO IMPROVE VISIBILITY AND PLANNING

Supply chain improvements and client integration programmes have been a key focus for IT enterprise planning in 2018. Numerous QAD-related process improvements have been completed, under programme of ‘planning modernisation’.

A multi-disciplined, cross-functional team continue to work together to build and develop a digital supply chain platform that will allow Sharp to exchange ERP data with our key strategic partners. This initiative is seen as critical by a number of our clients, who are actively contributing to improve planning and visibility for their future packaging projects.

Supply chain is at the heart of the service we deliver in Sharp and our operational efficiency has a critical impact on our clients experience and expectations. We will continue to look for opportunities to improve and innovate. By providing an integrated digital platform to link Sharp and our strategic clients, we can offer them better visibility, improved planning and ultimately a more rewarding partnership.
