A quick link to an interesting article about what to secure for a retailer in terms of supply chain.
Supply chain is not one of the topic I discuss the most in this blog, as I am focusing more on Customer Relationship Management, Marketing, Management or Retail Strategy. But probably I should more. Indeed, a strong supply chain secures you the availability of your products, which is key in customer satisfaction.
What the article emphasize the most, especially for holliday season, is how you should secure the availability of your products. In a purchasing strategy, it is also key: Even before having the best price, you should make sure that you will get your products.
