Failing technology leads to unexpected down time and supply chain disruption. Discover the advantages of buying off-the-shelf software and pitfalls of building in-house, including these points.
- High up-front costs.
- Outdated connectivity and integration capabilities.
- Little to no data or document sharing.
- No real-time collaboration tools with suppliers, customers, drivers, warehouse staff, etc.
