Integration Technology Can Improve Resiliency, Sustainability in Supply Chain Management
The pandemic-induced supply chain hurdles represent a reboot opportunity for companies. Here, we examine how companies can leverage modern integration technology to both improve supply chain performance and address sustainable supply-chain management practices.
Without a doubt, the world’s supply chains have been put to the test in the past 18 months — as market demand and availability of supplies became unpredictable thanks to COVID-19 disruptions.

Let’s examine how companies can leverage modern integration technology to both improve supply chain performance and address sustainable supply-chain management practices.
