Good supply chain management is essential to your operational efficiency, customer centricity, compliance, carbon footprint, and ultimately, your overall success. If handled correctly, your supply chain should improve customer service—along with the reputation of your brand—and boost your bottom line. But, as with many areas of business, the rules of the game are changing.
What’s changing? Well, everything. New regulations, increased buyer expectations, shorter product lifecycles, fluctuations in demand, new market entrants, more ethical supplier management, poor visibility of globalized supply chains—all these things, and more, are testing the limits of the traditional supply chain model. The simple truth is that the way things used to be done, and the solutions that enabled it, are no longer up to the job.
Today, organizations need levels of flexibility, integration, and visibility that are beyond what those systems were designed to deliver.

Picture a contact centre. Did your brain conjure an image of a sea of low-walled cubicles with agents speaking into headsets? Until recently, that’s what most contact centres were—a single site where agents commute to the office and complete their work at a fixed location.

But that’s not the only benefit that mobility has on customer service. Here are five ways you can boost customer service levels using mobility.

To respond to rapid business environmental changes, enterprises are now adopting a more agile and services-oriented model for centralized IT, often characterized as “private cloud.” Public cloud service providers have become adept at adding new customers, new applications, and more compute-intensive workloads with minimal delay. While traditional enterprise IT may not be able to fully emulate this model, they can use virtualization – both at the levels of servers and storage – to come as close to the cloud as possible.

Customer relationship management (CRM) deployments are most effective when they legitimately support all three words that make up the acronym itself. Customers of the modern business-to-business (B2B) enterprise benefit when they purchase goods and services from companies who are focused on the buyer’s experience. Internal relationships within the selling organization are more effectively maintained when all customer-facing stakeholders have access to the rich data contained in a well-maintained CRM. And the management of the enterprise providing solutions can run their business like a finely-tuned machine when the maximum levels of visibility into customers and accounts are clear and accurate. This Research Brief combines research from a number of Aberdeen Sales Effectiveness research data sets, to create a holistic view of the most effectively deployed CRM systems.
