Jabil Speeds Digital Transformations with Supply Chain Intelligence
Jabil (NYSE: JBL) today announced enhancements to its suite of industry-leading procurement capabilities to help global organizations minimize risk, optimize production and achieve cost leadership. Additionally, the company introduced its new Radius Digital Strategy Practice to assist customers in navigating complex digital transformations while creating business value and brand differentiation. “The digital transformation of manufacturing is causing a ripple effect worldwide as companies struggle with demand and supply volatility, including shifts in supply ecosystems and shortening product lifecycles,” said Don Hnatyshin, SVP and chief supply chain and procurement officer at Jabil. “Our ability to quickly and effectively address these critical business challenges is bolstered by digital supply chain and procurement capabilities that deliver much-needed visibility, real-time intelligence and real-world actionable insights.” According to a 2018 digital transformation survey by Dimensional Research of more than 300 manufacturing executives, the quickening pace of digital transformation creates issues despite significant investments. While most respondents reported increased funding for digital solutions, nearly half of the survey participants acknowledge persistent challenges due to inadequate digital expertise and mismatches between existing toolsets and organizational capabilities.

Designing a Digital Future
To expedite customers’ digital journeys, Radius Innovation and Development, a Jabil product ideation and development business, has launched a new Digital Strategy Practice. Blending creative, customer-centric insights with quantitative business analysis, Radius answers the questions of “who, what, why, when and how” digital strategies can benefit new or existing businesses. A cross-functional team of experts evaluates various alternatives at any stage of a company’s digital transformation.

“Our new Digital Strategy Practice guides customers through the constant cycle of creating, monetizing and defending business value,” said Heather Andrus, Senior Director of Strategic Development at Radius Innovation and Development. “We can enable companies to evolve their products and experiences by adding a digital component, build or expand their digital ecosystems and explore opportunities to monetize Internet of Things (IoT) data, while benefiting from cutting-edge solutions, including advanced automation, 3D printing and machine learning.”

Procurement Solutions for the Digital Age
