Restarting the Supply Chain
Closing supply chains was easy. Starting them up again is much more complex.
Restarting the supply chain is a complex task. Many businesses are finding that restarting operations around new COVID-19 health and safety practices are affecting both capacity and productivity. Not only that, but international businesses are attempting to restart with many countries at different stages in the lockdown lifecycle. To aid business’s adjustment we suggest considering six factors to reduce risk while keeping your supply chain coordinated, as products and materials start to flow.
Utilising Incident Management Technology to re-establish your supply chain?
Around the world, supply chain leaders are reassessing and trying to forecast what the future may bring. This means working with current supply chains to improve the efficiency and security of supplies while also finding new suppliers and routes that allow diversification in times of crisis. Companies that can stabilise their supply chains and provide structured responses to future risk will be in a position to ensure resilience.
“Using critical event-focused software will support best practice for many employers who are closely monitoring their workforce during this transitional phase. Swiftly gaining a real-time understanding of ‘organisational health’ is important.” Riz Omar, COO of Locate Global.
Incident management technology enables companies to make informed decisions based on real-time insights. The reporting function itself combines data and behavioural statistics, thereby helping organisations to track progress on company-wide critical operational changes.
It’s possible to maintain full visualisation of all users during the recovery phase and ongoing operations. Having clear lines of instant communication is critical for supply chain resilience. Mass notification with incident communication enables business entities to send notifications to individuals or groups, in turn keeping all stakeholders informed before, during and after critical events.
With so much at stake, for employees and for business continuity, it’s critical to get the restart right. To book a demo visit https://locate.global/uk/live-demo/. Restart the supply chain with confidence.
