A time before advanced technology demanded exhaustive manual assessments and meticulous tracking to monitor supply chains.  

However, with technology advancing, we now have the ability to ditch the countless hours devoted to spreadsheets, emails, document creation, and manual data entry for each component in the supply chain, and rely on computer software and automated systems.  

Authenticate has the software power to transform your business, streamline processes and save money.  

Discover how Authenticate is using technology to transform supply chain management practices.  

Traditional methods of supply chain mapping 

Past supply chain methods required a significant amount of manual assessments and tracking. Endless hours were spent using spreadsheets, writing emails, creating documents and entering data manually for each item in a supply chain.  

Not only was this method of supply chain mapping costly and time consuming, but it resulted in errors and delays in processing, which caused significant challenges in promptly identifying and resolving issues. However, with the rise of the influence of technology and computerised systems, this has changed.  

Supply chain software streamlining the process 

Modern technology has revolutionised supply chain mapping by providing advanced tools that offer real-time insights into the workings of many supply chains, all at once.  

Geographic Information System (GIS) software and cloud-based platforms enable businesses to monitor and optimise their supply chains with precision, providing complete transparency to make informed decisions. 

Automated data collection devices, such as RFID tags and sensors, enhance accuracy and enable the tracking of products throughout supply chains. This not only reduces manual errors but also facilitates quicker decision-making and proactive issue resolution. This technological transition has not only streamlined processes but also reduced manpower, resulting in cost savings for companies.
