Supply Chain Management
The primary purpose for the existence of any supply chain is to satisfy customer needs and business profits. Supply chain activities begin with a customer order and end when a satisfied customer pays for their purchase. This is often referred to as perfect order fulfillment, from quote-to-cash. Everything that happens in between should be driven by the single goal of adding value to the inputs and making it closer to whatever the end customer requires.

But not all supply chains add value. Companies that invest in supply chain management (SCM) tools to identify such activities can work on reducing and eliminating these non-added value activities, becoming what is referred to as lean businesses or a lean supply chain. SCM software from Epicor can help your company deliver products and services to market faster, cheaper and with better quality, gaining a compelling advantage over less efficient competitors.
