Subject: The IMARK Group Supports NAED’s efforts in implementing a Supply Chain Scorecard
The IMARK Group Supports NAED’s efforts in implementing a Supply Chain Scorecard and encourages its members to use this disciplines, ongoing, strategic business tool.
We see the benefits of common definitions for metrics industry-wide. This tool will enable IMARK distributors and manufacturers to identify issues, develop action plans, and hold each other accountable for performance.
In addition, the potential benefits to IMARK members measuring supply chain performance include sales grown; reductions in operating expenses; lower investments in working capital; enhanced reliability and quality of information; improved responsiveness to end-customers and better business relationships.
Please let us know what we can do to help the Supply Chain Scorecard gain traction in the electrical industry.
