Manufacturers and distributors hire us to provide expertise and advice on their end-to-end supply chain strategy and business transformation. Our practice focuses on aligning the customers’ needs with the optimal strategies, resources and systems infrastructure to maximize the customer experience, cash flow and profit.
Our passion is collaborating with companies to create bold customer promises and profits simultaneously and rapidly – achieving the “win-win-win”! Improving the customer experience, aligning sales, operations and finance to maximize business value, enhancing end-to-end supply chain performance, and enabling rapid growth and change with scalable infrastructure (people, processes and systems) are sweet spots.
We are recognized as experts in SIOP (sales & operations planning), supply chain network analysis, demand planning and master scheduling, operational performance improvement and selecting and leveraging technologies such as ERP systems. However, we often use none of these in our most successful engagements. Instead, we tailor our efforts to what will drive results.
We’ve advised closely-held, private-equity backed and multi-billion dollar, global organizations in industries as diverse as aerospace and defense, building and industrial products, food and beverage, consumer products and healthcare products.
