"In order to meet retailer demands, CPG manufacturers must respond quickly to real-time signals from customers and integrate effectively with global suppliers," states Stephen Parker, president of Datacraft Solutions. "This can only be done by building solutions that support a demand-driven supply chain network, which allows CPG packaging companies to meet large retailer demands and enhance the efficiency of the supply chain by integrating RFID and other technologies, such as digital kanban, with internal systems."

Digital Kanban solutions within the demand-driven supply chain impact profit margins in several ways: by decreasing expense side tangible cost associated with legacy forecast management solutions, increase profit margins through efficiency gains. Increased customer satisfaction may result in additional sales to new as well as existing customers. Automated Kanban can dramatically reduce inventory, increase turns, and eliminate stock outs while enhancing supplier relations and customer satisfaction.
