Leveraging Supply Chain Analytics for Improved Operations

Manufacturing is just the beginning. All the time, energy and resources companies funnel into producing material goods means nothing if they never make it into the hands of businesses and consumers around the world. It’s paramount for companies to figure out the most speedy, cost-effective ways to fulfill orders from start to finish.

Companies utilizing modern supply chain analytics from ThoughtSpot have a major advantage. Why? Because, at their fingertips, they have the tools to take advantage of their troves of stored data. The secret to refining various processes is hidden within the many rows of structured data companies keep. Supply chain analytics tools simply give everyone within the company the power to derive actionable insights from data warehouses—in seconds.

Using the world’s very first Relational Search engine for data analytics, users only have to enter a search query to receive answers in the form of relevant data and best-fit visualizations. In other words, companies can harness the power of AI to assist in human-led decision making.

Business intelligence for the supply chain can provide instant insights into: revenue, sales, distributors, suppliers, inventory, ongoing projects, tickets, delivery estimates and more. All it takes is a search query featuring a few parameters to return results:

- What: The subject of your search, like “sales” or “inventory”- When: Any time constraints, like “last month” or “this year”- Where: Any geographical restraints, like “north” or “by state” 

Basically, all employees need to know is what they need to know—ThoughtSpot’s Relational Search engine does the rest. It even offers a guided search experience by suggesting applicable search terms using DataRank, a machine-learning algorithm. It’s like having someone finish your sentences (even if you’ve only typed up a few letters).

ThoughtSpot takes supply chain analytics one step farther and automatically configures data returned by the Relational Search engine into whichever visualization model fits best, whether it’s a chart, graph or map. Of course, users can still manipulate data, add filters or even change the chart’s type and design.

Long story short: In order to improve supply chain operations, companies have to have a firm grasp on what’s working and what isn’t. ThoughtSpot provides the supply chain analytics tools necessary to unlock these answers from a wealth of data.
