Supply Chain Consultancy
We believe that the supply chain is the key driver to support the growth and innovation of a business. The traditional view of supply chain focusses on cost reduction and delivery performance, which are obviously important, but our consultants will review the whole supply chain from procurement through to warehousing and logistics, including forecasting, inventory optimisation and control, the manufacturing process and managing the sales and distribution channels. Another important area to consider is that of customer engagement – the opportunity to improve communication can build on the relationship with the customer with will in turn build loyalty and help sell other products/services more easily.
Supply Chain Strategy
It is important to have a clear, up to date and accurate supply chain strategy to maximise sales opportunities and minimise costs and working capital.
If you’re not sure whether your supply strategy needs a review then try answering the following questions:
- Is each customer segment satisfied with your company’s supply performance?
- Is there any customer segment that you “over deliver” to their requirements?
- Is your inventory reducing as a proportion to sales?
- Are your supply costs reducing as a proportion to sales?
- Has a new sales channel been opened up without a review to the strategic plan?
- Has all the client communication been fully imbedded into the normal processes?
- Do returns, repair and recycling add profit to the business?
We have a team of consultants who are experts in Supply Chain Consultancy, who have all worked at senior management level within manufacturing and distribution companies. Their approach is practical and thorough, working alongside the client to gain a full understanding of the processes, issues and problems, and applying their deep technical knowledge and real-world expertise to deliver sustainable results quickly and efficiently.
Our consultants can work with you in any particular area that you feel needs attention, or take a look at the complete supply chain, to suit your needs and your budget. They will create a forward-looking, practical strategy, rooting the information in verifiable facts. For some clients we have modelled the current supply chain and then utilised that to undertake analysis of a variety of options available, considering risk, benefit and culture fit. This has allowed them to have a clear understanding of the benefits of a strategy before making any change.
