Data analytics for supply chain management

Harnessing the value in daily supply chain data is a game changer, particularly when your staff can access real-time insights via an intuitive and easy to use platform

Data in the supply chain industry is collected at every touchpoint, from origin through to fulfilment, by a variety of data-generating devices and systems.

As you’d expect, that means that there’s a whole lot of data being collected: years and years of data, from thousands of customers, drivers, and partners, across different locations and at every time of the day.

The existence of big data in the supply chain industry is not unknown; the value, however, is often overlooked. While so much data is created and stored, only a very small portion of it is analysed.

Consider each stage of a typical run and gain an instant glimpse into the vast amount of data that likely already exists, accumulated over years.

Now it’s time to uncover how it can be assessed and interpreted to deliver real value and insight for your supply chain business.

While they may have been slower to the uptake than other industries like finance or retail, the supply chain industry is now unpacking the value of big data analytics, leveraging real-time analysis, cloud-powered solutions, and data sets that deliver true insight and actionable outcomes.

Benefits of big data analytics in supply chain management

Harnessing the value in the data for just a single job throughout its complete lifecycle would produce some significant and hugely valuable outcomes.

Now, imagine what would be possible with the data inherent in an entire year’s worth of jobs.

Working with Syntagium, supply chain companies of any size can develop their own specialised tools, systems, and processes to help them make sense of data gathered daily over many years.

Uncover insights and develop systems based on your very own data from the past, to improve your future.

Do more with what you already have. Here are just some of the benefits you can uncover when you unleash the power of big data:

  • Early identification of bottlenecks
  • Identify, manage, and mitigate risk
  • Streamline delivery management processes (reduce errors, forecast potential issues)
  • Improve client management outcomes
  • Manage drivers and vehicles in real time
  • Reduce time on the road
  • Improve site health and safety
  • Improve resource efficiency

Supporting every part of the supply chain process

Syntagium works with organisations operating at each stage of the supply chain process, from the planning stage through to distribution.

Supply Chain Planning

Supply chain planning utilises big data to predict and mitigate potential issues. This reduces the risk of costly mistakes being made and therefore has a direct and profound impact on your budget and timeline.

Sourcing & Procurement

Access to historical data on performance and quality helps the sourcing and procurement team optimise operations, predict challenges, identify risks, and improve health and safety.


Over time, as more and more data is collected, operations managers gain deeper insight when it comes to forecasting and planning. This knowledge leads to improved output, increased productivity, and reduced costs.

Logistics & Distribution

Every step of the distribution process is optimised, clarified, and considered, allowing for better, smarter, and more informed decisions to be made that ensure the highest fulfilment rates.

It’s time for your supply chain company to embrace the digital age and explore the power of data analytics

A key barrier that many supply chain companies face is data compatibility and, of course, data integrity. An added problem is that data analytics is not the core function of most organisations.

We help break down the barrier between data you’ve collected and the insights it can reveal: our world-class data specialists have worked with many organisations to deliver real outcomes, including:

  • Improved efficiency in job delivery
  • Reduced the time prepare and plan workloads
  • Consistent and dynamic reporting

Digitised workplace management can also reduce costs, optimise scheduling, and improve ROIs, budgeting, and risk management.
