Competitive Advantage by Integrated e-Business in Supply Chains: A Strategic Approach
In this paper, the authors report the findings of competitive advantage of supply chain integration and the crucial role of integrated e-business to deliver those benefits. However, adoption of e-business in supply chains has been slower than expected, particularly in Small to Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs). Differences between firms in supply chains and between supply chains are examined. Across industries, firms have adopted e-business initiatives to better manage their internal business processes as well as their interfaces with the environment.
