Slow And Steady No Longer Wins the Race When it Comes to Linking the Demand Chain with the Supply Chain

Apr 18, 2001, 01:00 ET from Oracle Corp.

    REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., April 18 /PRNewswire/ --
 ( http://www.oracle.com/tellmemore/?660699 ) The old addage of "slow and
 steady wins the race" is long behind us.  Companies that move quickly and
 ensure that the right parts of the organization are being fed with the right
 information will be the ones that stay ahead of the curve.  Linking suppliers,
 employees and customers seamlessly is key in enhancing efficiency, and meeting
 customers' demands.  Through tight integration between Oracle's customer
 service applications with the rest of the organization, service agents can
 quickly drill down to the core of what customers really want and expect from
 their suppliers.  Sales agents can take orders, provide status on product
 shipments and orders, offer account status, and resolve customer issues.
 They can even cross- and up-sell new products to customers and feed the latest
 demand information back through the enterprise so that the supply chain is in
 synch with the demand chain.  By moving quickly and efficiently through this
 process, companies can reduce inventory and wastage to help ensure that they
 are giving customers what they want ... as soon as they want it.
