How can small and medium-sized commercial enterprises make good use of the supply chain system

the increasingly severe competitive pressure makes small and medium-sized enterprises need to constantly adjust their business strategies according to market demand and changes in the process of development. For enterprises seeking differentiated management, how to gain an advantage in business mode and management level has become the main challenge for enterprise development

domestic small and medium-sized commercial enterprises are facing the dilemma of internal and external attack. On the one hand, domestic large-scale commercial enterprises have accelerated their transformation in recent years and have basically achieved modern management; On the other hand, foreign chain enterprises swarmed into the Chinese market and took root and developed in China with standardized management and brand strategy

the increasingly severe competition under the action of mechanical force through extrusion, molding, blow molding or injection molding and taking appropriate molds to produce degradable materials, makes small and medium-sized enterprises need to constantly adjust their business strategies according to market demand and changes in the process of development. For enterprises seeking differentiated management, how to gain an advantage in business mode and management level has become the main challenge for enterprise development

among them, for many small and medium-sized enterprises seeking low-cost operation, how to optimize the processes of procurement, production, sales and other business links to reduce the operating cost ratio has become the key to enterprise development. The informatization construction of enterprises is widely regarded as one of the powerful means to help enterprises improve their competitiveness. Through effective planning and design, information system can help enterprises achieve differentiated operation and cost control more effectively. Under the internal and external attack, whether the supply chain management level can be improved has become the lifeblood of the survival and development of domestic small and medium-sized commercial enterprises

supply chain management is particularly important for commercial enterprises. Commercial enterprises are in the middle of the supply chain. On the one hand, commercial enterprises should negotiate and compete with manufacturers on price, sales mode, billing date and service support. On the other hand, they should quickly meet the increasingly diverse and changing needs of consumers. It is more and more difficult for commercial enterprises to realize the transformation from commodity to currency. The decisive factor for this result is the current supply chain management level of domestic small and medium-sized commercial enterprises

although domestic small and medium-sized commercial enterprises have achieved green upgrading of plastics in the past decade, which is the epitome of the vigorous development of new material utilization, they have developed rapidly, but their service life is generally not long; Small and medium-sized commercial enterprises operate flexibly and meet the spring test level 05 test standard, but their management means are backward. Most of them rely on experience and simple accounting processing tools, and a considerable number of them use manual bookkeeping. The informatization of small and medium-sized commercial enterprises is rarely planned from the overall goal of the supply chain, emphasizing commodity management and ignoring process optimization; Emphasizing cost orientation and ignoring customer orientation; Emphasizing the cost and price management of single products or categories, ignoring the ordering cost, storage cost and delivery cost of inventory; Emphasizing data processing, ignoring information sharing and centralized control; Emphasize business management and ignore decision analysis

in order to survive and develop, the core capabilities of domestic small and medium-sized commercial enterprises are the ability to respond quickly to the market and operation and the ability to make correct decisions. To achieve these two points, we must have a powerful supply chain application platform that can be quickly configured, implemented, applied and effective, and improve the management of small and medium-sized commercial enterprises from the traditional manual or low-level information management to the modern scientific management

the development of computer technology just provides the technical foundation for the current demand of commercial supply chain management. In the past, there were not many mature and applicable software for the supply chain management of small and medium-sized commercial enterprises, and although each had its own advantages, most of them did not grasp the unique needs and management characteristics of small and medium-sized commercial enterprises. Many enterprises have faced difficulties in solving the contradiction between overall planning and step-by-step implementation. Overall planning and step-by-step implementation are the internal requirements of the informatization of growing enterprises, but the lack of funds, weak basic management and insufficient professionals often make the overall planning lose its strategic objectives. The overall planning is reduced to system design, and the step-by-step implementation loses the support of the strategic objectives, and becomes a "headache cures the head, and the foot cures the foot". As a result, the informatization of many small and medium-sized commercial enterprises has fallen into a quagmire

in recent years, with the gradual deepening of the informatization degree of small and medium-sized enterprises, the relevant informatization means have also been greatly improved. As small and medium-sized enterprises are a huge market, many domestic and foreign IT manufacturers have also launched system software or solutions suitable for the deployment and application of small and medium-sized enterprises

from the current market, the means available to small and medium-sized enterprises to improve supply chain management are still diversified

according to the differences in functions and characteristics, these products can be roughly divided into three categories: system platform software, application software and integration services

system platform software

as a typical software platform supplier, IBM and Microsoft have products for small and medium-sized enterprises. Ibmexpress easyJet series solutions are specially designed and priced for small and medium-sized enterprise customers. It consists of new hardware, software, service solutions and financial leasing services. The software products include websphereexpress series middleware products, db2express and so on, which are designed to meet the specific requirements of small and medium-sized enterprises in terms of function, ease of use, ease of management and price. Microsoftsmallbusinessserver is a full-featured network application software to explore the market of small and medium-sized enterprises. Its design purpose is to assist small and medium-sized enterprises with less than 50 personal computers in informatization, so as to open business opportunities, manage and strengthen customer relations, and improve staff productivity and work efficiency with the help of the Internet. On top of the system platform software, independent software providers (ISVs) or solution providers (SPS) can develop application software for specific industries

application software

compared with system platform software, application software often provides some special functions required by enterprise management, such as SCM and ERP. I2 has the largest market share of SCM products, and some traditional ERP manufacturers have also launched SCM modules. For the small and medium-sized enterprise market, many application software suppliers have also launched different products, such as oraclee businesssuitespecialdedition, SAPBusinessOne and so on. These applications are what we call packaged software products, which are designed to meet the needs of small and medium-sized enterprise level applications that are "easy to buy", "easy to implement" and "easy to maintain". They do not have to be based on some specific standard system platform software, but often the system platform software will provide the ability to integrate these application software

integrated services

as an enterprise level information system, what users need is no longer a simple software product, but a series of value-added services composed of management consulting, solutions, system implementation, etc. While integrated service providers master advanced management methods and system design, and can effectively help enterprises with system planning and implementation by virtue of and implementation experience. Ibmbusinessconsultingservice and digital China belong to such manufacturers that provide integrated services

the three elements of successful system selection are: environmental requirements, reasonable objectives, and demand driven. Informatization is the only way for small and medium-sized enterprises to meet the challenges of the new economy, significantly improve operational efficiency, reduce operating costs, and grasp new business opportunities. There is no reliable fixture. Of course, in the eyes of many leaders, informatization is not the main focus, because small and medium-sized enterprises mainly face the problem of enhancing competitiveness, solving the problem of survival and development, and increasing investment in production equipment improvement and process improvement. Therefore, for the enterprise information system, some leaders asked whether they could increase the sales volume by 30% - in fact, this is very difficult

in the process of enterprise informatization, there are many transfers of result knowledge and process knowledge. In the short term, any enterprise informatization system, in addition to helping cultivate and change employees' ideas, generally has negative benefits. As for the long-term benefits, it is the improvement of efficiency and the reduction of costs. At the same time, a more fundamental thing is that enterprise management will produce fundamental changes and embark on the road of structural self optimization. Therefore, on the premise of maintaining flexible and flexible operation, small and medium-sized enterprises should strengthen internal training, strengthen the "systematization" of internal management, and try their best to reduce the uncertainty and randomness of management. The best way is to make management information-based. In this way, we can not only achieve the purpose of systematization of management, but also train cadres with strong executive ability and high versatility, which can kill many birds with one stone

therefore, whether at home or abroad, large enterprises generally strive to make breakthroughs in material, marketing and financial systems, and then further improve production plans and equipment; The goal of management informatization of small and medium-sized enterprises should be "effective supervision of enterprise logistics", and the implementation should focus on the internal logistics (internal supply chain) - purchase, sale and inventory management

this can bring benefits to the enterprise to the greatest extent and fastest, and also make basic preparations for the overall launch of ERP in the future

in addition, when improving the overall supply chain management level of enterprises, the industry, region, upstream and downstream environment is also one of the factors that cannot be ignored. If these small and medium-sized enterprises can, while improving their own informatization level, educate or learn from upstream and downstream partners and members, and jointly strengthen enterprise operation informatization management, they will obtain greater benefits.
