Nowadays we live in a world where both customers and companies are becoming more demanding. Customer expectations are higher than ever like ‘order today, receive tomorrow’. Therefore companies should improve their collaboration with their suppliers in order to meet these services. An example of this is the supply of materials in the sequence of production. As customers are more demanding processes require more efficiency, especially when the processes involve companies working together.
The 33nd Industria Congres is centered on the theme: Partners in Excellence.
The amount of partnerships between companies is increasing. Companies want to innovate continuously, which can be realized by exchanging data with other companies. This happens sometimes even between competitors, whereby the notion “concullega’s”(competitors and colleagues combined) is originated.
There are several reasons for companies to share their valuable information with other companies. Resources such as funding, materials and knowledge are used to create a beneficial situation, if they are used effectively. Companies will need to think about strategies that can ensure that these resources are used as effectively as possible. Furthermore, some resources may contain very reliable information, including personal data. Therefore, companies have to decide how to handle sensitive information. When companies can master these different aspects of the new business world, they can conquer a bigger competitive advantage. In short, collaboration requires efficiency, from management to the supply chain.
The goal of the Industria Congres is to increase the understanding of how the power of collaboration can add value to your business. Within the main theme, we will focus on the collaboration with the customer and regarding to the supplier. Both sides are interesting for the Congres to elaborate further on, depending on which side is most applicable to your business.
