iDMCP : AI & ML Powered Distribution Supply Chain Optimization and Collaboration Suite
With evolving consumers preferences and omnichannel distribution on the rise, the consumer-packaged goods (CPG) industry is having to rehaul their supply chains to remain profitable in a highly competitive environment. It is crucial for CPG organizations to ramp up their distribution management systems to absorb market demand fluctuations, optimize inventory, warehousing and supply chain efficiencies in real time, thereby ensuring faster time-to-market, improving service levels and reducing costs. TCS’ proprietary cloud-based offering, Integrated Distributor Management and Collaboration Platform (iDMCP), enables CPG companies to achieve this balance by offering complete visibility into demand, inventory and distribution, helping them seamlessly fulfill real-time market demands.
Easily configured based on the customer’s business context, iDMCP leverages TCS’ proprietary ‘Follow the Product’ approach to unlock people, process, technology, and data interventions. In essence, it offers an innovation roadmap for enterprises to balance their cash, cost, and service, thereby helping them transform from output driven to outcome driven organizations.
