Realigning the links of the disconnected supply chain
SYSPRO study into how manufacturers and distributors need to rethink and realign their supply chain to engineer a bounce-back
A SYSPRO guide into how manufacturers can remain resilient
From Brexit through to trade wars and even the pandemic, manufacturers and distributors have needed to thrive in a state of consistent chaos for years. Supply chain disruptions have led the industry to find short-term digital solutions to remain resilient. Many businesses build digital roadmaps with the aim to overcome ongoing disruptions. The question is whether businesses made the right investments and what they should be thinking about to engineer a bounce-back.
To answer these questions, SYSPRO conducted a research survey which assessed the sentiment of 163 manufacturing and distribution industry professionals of different managerial levels within EMEA, the Americas and APAC regions.
The SYSPRO 2022 Research Report unpacks:
- Did manufacturers build a long-term digital roadmap and have they stuck to that plan?
- What technologies have given manufacturers a competitive advantage?
- What has been holding the industry back and what is projecting them forward?
- What are the underlying reasons behind the ongoing supply chain disruptions?
- How do manufacturers and distributors realign their supply chain?

The findings suggest that many businesses did not set up a solid foundation in their digital strategy by jumping straight to digitalization or digital transformation. At the same time, many businesses feel that digital transformation is unnecessary as the way they have manufactured products has not changed in years.
