“Multi-Tier Visibility Is Now Table Stakes: Making Smart Bets on Upstream Supplier Visibility”
“For many companies, significant supply chain execution risks come from lack of visibility into multiple tiers of their upstream supply chain,” said Douglas Kent, global vice president, Avnet Velocity. “Multi-tier supplier visibility and supplier collaboration have become critical to mitigating risk when upstream events don’t go as planned. During this presentation, Greg, Ray and I will discuss how to develop and implement supply chain solutions that improve visibility, allowing organizations to better manage their supply chain challenges and mitigate risks.”
