The ‘smart’ use of information and communication technology (ICT) by companies is a critical factor for success in innovation, competitiveness and growth. As large companies are moving to exploit the advantages offered by ICT, smaller companies have to follow suit or risk being left out of digital supply chains.
The ‘smart use of ICT’ refers to the ability of companies in a supply chain to interact electronically and seamlessly, avoiding or significantly reducing paper-based, manual data processing. It also refers to unprecedented opportunities for companies, notably SMEs, to enter new markets by enabling them to participate in global digital supply chains.
