The wishes of the end user

Thanks for the information Megan. I think there should be a portal where the company listens to the business ideas (that involves supply chain) and incorporates them in the marketing philosophy. I can relate to at least some of the points listed there, including "Sourcing hard to find parts" which really is concerning because a healthy percentage of consumers do not like to change a device which they think is working perfectly, and if something goes wrong with the device they cannot get the appropriate support from the company.

"one-stop shops" for sourcing and inventory management

"The bottom line is, in fact, the bottom line when it comes to services and sourcing management. The main reason customers most request these types of services is the increased pressure on their bottom line. Businesses today are dealing with significant market competition on many fronts, resulting in supply chain shifts for "one-stop shops" for sourcing and inventory management to increase productivity and improve cost savings for both production and repair."

Megan, customers are looking for an end to end solution for their requirements; starting from selection of items to final delivery and replacement of fault components. For them it's a tedious process to appoint for different set of vendors for each stage; Its time consuming and costly also.
