The Online Supply Chain Forum 2014 takes place at Stamford Plaza, Melbourne on 19th to 21st February and will feature an exciting presentation and workshop by Mike Reed of Oliver Wight on the importance of benchmarking the supply chain.

Online PR News – 29-January-2014 – Brighton, Victoria – Taking place at the Stamford Plaza, Melbourne, 19th to 21st February, The Online Retail Supply Chain Forum features an exciting array of presentations, discussions and case studies on how to enable traditional retail supply chains for online retail distribution. Oliver Wight partner, Mike Reed, will present on day two of the event and host a post-conference supply chain workshop.

Controlling the supply chain and optimising inventory management results in significant savings to the bottom line and increases the financial health of the company. But, as Reed explains, “Making big decisions without first identifying precisely where your organisation is – in absolute terms and in relation to its competitors and peers – is an extremely risky business.”

Reed’s inspiring presentation ‘Benchmarking to drive improvement of e-tail supply chains’ will address:

• Why it is important to benchmark your supply chain
• What leading e-supply chains do differently
• How to go about supply chain benchmarking
• Learning from data and analytics case examples

In Reed’s workshop, ‘Fundamentals for Supply Chain Optimisation’, on February 21st, delegates will learn how to take the appropriate steps to transform their supply chain to meet the needs of a dynamic marketplace, efficiently and sustainably.

“The Australian retail industry and retailers around the world are grappling with the dynamic expectations of techno-savvy customers and how these expectations directly impact the way retailers and their supply chains work to maintain market share. It is fundamental organisations align their people, processes and tools to the overall business plan, if they want to progress along the supply chain journey,” concludes Reed.
