"State-of-the-art warehouse and distribution management systems capable of storing, tracking, and updating in real-time a centralized inventory that spans all points in a distribution network are needed to do this."

Mary, now a day's most of the inventory and purchases are happening online and final distribution from the centralized warehouse. Since most of such things are happening through online, there won't be any requirement of full pledge supply chain for canvassing or order capture. It's too economical and only thing is they have to ensure speedy and prompt delivery

Yes, but there are still companies with both ecom and brick and mortar outlets--and distributed inventories.
