The key difference that sets the emergency management supply chain apart is volatility. Especially in the case of "no notice" events—disasters that occur without warning, such as tornadoes, floods, earthquakes and terrorist attacks — logistics decisions often need to be made on-the-fly based on information that may not be reliable. Yet, with the right tools, emergency management organizations can reign in volatility. With capabilities that gauge demand, facilitate complex collaboration, optimize distribution and track deliveries, your organization can effectively manage the emergency management supply chain—getting the right people, the products and the information they need, when they need it.
This is our mission at Manhattan Associates. Our clients include some of the key players in the emergency management arena, both in the public and private sectors; this experience has allowed us to gain a deep knowledge of what's needed to make emergency management logistics successful.
Emergency Management agencies need a proven solution to address these needs—particularly real-time visibility; limited reliance on phone calls, email and faxes; improved service and lower costs. Only Manhattan SCOPE® for emergency management is equipped to manage the volatility of the emergency management supply chain, providing an unparalleled approach to visibility, management and optimization.
