Like a stone dropped into water, the pandemic has touched off a ripple effect in the supply chain that's causing massive headaches around the globe. Not only have there been shortages, but demand has increased—exacerbating the problem.
What can be done about it? In this episode, Mike Hafner, VP of Manufacturing and Fulfillment at Zebra, says he sees the light at the end of the tunnel, but it likely won't come until well into 2022.
In the meantime, he explains how mobile technology can help—squeezing every ounce out of supply chain efficiency is critical. You need constant visibility and new ways to digitize and automate workflows. He also gets out his crystal ball for us and talks about exciting new supply chain technology on the horizon.
While nobody has a crystal ball, it's clear that the current climate means businesses must be as nimble and efficient as possible so they can handle whatever difficulties may come. The Stratix 2023 Enterprise Mobility Outlook research shows that companies are investing in mobile solutions to do just that. 86% are using more mobile now than in the last three years.
