This book is an effort to provoke interest in the subject and allow the reader to grasp the approach of supply chain management in various business sectors. It provides an insight into every stage of business right from suppliers to manufacturers to wholesalers to retailers and finally to the customer. Its mine theme aims at maximizing business profits

keeping in mind the belief that the “Customer is King”. I think this can be definitely achieved if a business possesses the right information and the appropriate software.
