What's clapping got to do with innovation in the car industry? And why can't I drive a truly zero-emission car from production right through to recycling, today?
There is an old saying in business - possibly attributed to marketing and management guru Phillip Kotler from about 30 years ago - that there are three types of companies: those that make things happen; those that watch what's happening, and those that wonder what happened.
Still true today, and innovative companies and those with aspirations for innovation know which type they should belong to.
To remain competitive, we need to constantly review our technology and processes of distribution to service our customer's needs. Synnex distributes over 4,000 high value IT products and consumables which have a short shelf life from over 30 suppliers. This means we need to have complete knowledge of stock levels in 'real time'. And with speed of delivery a major issue, our adoption of technology and innovative processes continues to simplify systems for our staff to ensure 100 per cent accuracy in stock movements.
For instance, we use our ERP system to identify and store fast-selling items in warehouse bins located nearest to the packing assembly line. As stock is picked from shelves it is scanned, with all orders packed with camera surveillance above each packing desk to record all deliveries.
