Sustaining a competitive advantage is the hallmark of today's retailing environment. As consumers have shifted their buying criteria to demand more value, better service, and greater convenience, retailers must adapt the way they offer services to meet these evolving consumer needs. Changing retailing patterns, industry consolidation, globalization and the growth of technology have blurred the lines among the traditional role of a consumer product manufacturer, wholesaler, distributor, retailer and the customer. This convergence of the consumer supply chain creates an opportunity for consumer businesses to optimize the relationship between their suppliers and vendors to create timely new products, streamlined operations, and high quality low cost service.
