Supply chain management has become an excellent strategy to effectively link all the trading partners and ensure cost effective and timely movement of materials from the raw material supplier to the final end-consumer.Inter-organizational systems provide the technology infrastructure to facilitate the flow of information along the chain and thereby ensuring the smooth flow of goods. The two areas have been developing independently without realizing the synergies in integrating the research from the two fields. This paper attempts to provide an integrated perspective of supply chain management and interorganizational systems highlighting the potential benefits, management issues, and guidelines for implementation.
