As smart devices with great processing capabilities become more and more common, accessing real-time supply chain data through a mobile ERP platform is a profitable venture.

Real-time Data Exchange

Mobile ERP offers managers a hawk-eye view of their workforce as well as warehouse operations, consignments, and qued tasks. Technologies like IoT and RFID track the movement of consignments through their journey from production to warehouses to end clients. As IoT devices are integrated with the ERP system of the enterprise, tracking data is readily available through a dashboard. It eliminates the need for transferring data through email or telephonic mediums, thus accelerating the implementation of decisions in the supply chain.

Increased Efficiency

As new technologies, consumer behaviors, and lean production models take over the supply chain market, the ability to break out of traditional systems and to adapt is of the essence. A mobile supply chain aids enterprises in building a network that can be managed remotely as it consists of well-placed technological tools and software.

With a detailed assessment of the peaks and lows of sales cycles, mobile ERPs can be used to implement replenishment strategies that contain cost and drive returns.
