DRIVE MORE VALUE FROM YOUR SUPPLY CHAIN BY IMPROVING THE WAY YOU MANAGE CUSTOMER SERVICE
Customer Service Supply Chain Management offers expert guidance for managing your supply chain to deliver more innovative and profitable customer experiences.
Pioneering supply chain management experts Alexandre Oliveira and Anne Gimeno provide a comprehensive overview of the topic, detailed descriptions of each high-value approach, and modern applications and best practices proven at leading companies worldwide.

This book’s content will be exceptionally helpful to both practitioners and students in all areas of supply chain management, customer service, and marketing, including participants in leading certification programs.
To build a truly customer-centric business, you must integrate, balance, and optimize four sets of relationships: product, customer, service, and process. By doing this, you empower your business to deliver the high-profit solutions your customers really want: personalized packages of products, services, support, education, and consulting.
Customer Service Supply Chain Management offers a complete model and blueprint for achieving these goals. Global supply chain innovators Alexandre Oliveira and Anne Gimeno show how to systematically address key issues ranging from organizational structure, governance, and strategy to day-to-day tactics and operations.
Oliveira and Gimeno help you assess where you stand now, identify gaps and priorities, and move rapidly towards greater effectiveness. They introduce realistic examples, applications, and best practices: all designed to help you translate theory into practice, and practice into profits.
