In a recent blog post, Bob Trebilcock of Modern Materials Handling discussed the findings of an IBM and Aldata Solution’s survey of where CIOs will invest their tech dollars. Two key findings point to the importance of supply chain software.
  • 84% of U.S. respondents identified real-time warehouse management as a top application, with 11% planning upgrades.
  • 100% of U.S. retailers indicated they were using some type of mobile application in logistics and distribution, with 16% planning to upgrade over the next three years.
This quote sums it up nicely…“CIOs are under pressure to cuts, but they can’t afford to cut service.” Improvements and efficiencies in distribution and transportation are essential and offer a long-term impact that go beyond the recession.
