ABSTRACT
This article discusses how, in order to achieve a more efficient supply chain, companies must realize that technology is only one part of the process. The ideal solution lies in a complete reevaluation of business procedures,seeing how these can be developed and improved, and how technology can be brought in to support and enhance the process. As technology enables the partial automation of the supply chain, companies now have more time to get closer to their customers and to provide a more personalized service. Organizations need to reeducate their employees so that technology is a job aid rather than a necessary evil to be endured. The author of this article believes that technology has also made changes to the traditional relationships between customers and suppliers.
