Sourcing and Network Collaboration

Sourcing and Network Collaboration

The industrial revolution has given way to the days of the digital revolution. If earlier it was about who had monopoly over the market, today it is about who knows how to outsource best. Outsourcing allows a company to focus on what it is good at, leveraging the capabilities of its partners to speed up production and distribution of its products. Unnecessary and cost-inefficient processes are swiftly cut off from the sum total of all that goes into the making of the product. Products moving from design to market is made faster by such collaboration.
