Cupertino, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/05/2015 -- Ultriva founder, Narayan Laksham recently shared, "Increased adoption of automation will help manufacturers create new revenue streams and lower costs. Real-time demand fulfillment will require tight integration of supply chain, production, logistics, and marketing. The ability to sense demand in real-time and respond by changing prices or promotions through the utilization of segmented logistics, inventory and performance capacities, will allow for the optimization of integrated responses."
Re-shoring will continue but supply chains will remain global, large and complex: Re-shoring will remain a focus as manufacturers search for efficiencies and innovation, but supply chains will still be complicated, requiring increased visibility provided by the industrial IoT.
