High-Tech Distribution Solution
In the High Technology distributors need to address challenges such as higher operational costs, lost sales, diminishing margins and shareholder value. Such a situation is caused by poor channel performance, operational inefficiencies, delayed solution offerings, and siloed information.
To improve channel performance and maximize customer responsiveness, High Technology distributors need maximum visibility into supply chain operations with real-time channel intelligence. They must adopt global process standardization and focus on high-impact or high-value business processes.
In addition, distributors must offer self-service capabilities to enhance customer experience and develop competencies for rapid deployment of bundled services and products.
Oracle and Infosys combine Oracle's best-of-breed applications and technology with Infosys' functional expertise and world-class services to deliver extensive enterprise benefits from integrated innovation.
