Supply Chain & Logistics Consulting

Digitally transform and optimize your operations through automation and artificial intelligence

Supply chains – the linkages of material, information and payment flows across enterprise boundaries – are increasingly dynamic and complex and many have proven to be fragile and inefficient under the strains of COVID-19 and other geopolitical pressures. If your organization sells a product, you have a supply chain, and if you physically handle a product, you deal with logistics. You already have some idea of the fragmented nature of the supply chain ecosystem. Whether you are an ecommerce startup or a mature and established manufacturer, distributor or retailer, your business has seen tremendous upheaval in 2020 and 2021. You need to bolster your sourcing, supply and distribution; optimize your inventory; free up working capital; retain your talent; improve your service levels and increase your customer base. That is a lot, and likely overwhelming, especially to SMEs.

Optimize your Inventory. Transform your Warehouse.

Optimize your Inventory Management. Let information replace inventory

Finding and maintaining the optimal inventory levels is crucial to your business success and growth. Customers expect stock availability, when and where they want it. Stockouts could lead to lost sales and lost customers. On the other hand, excess inventory is nothing more than stagnant cash losing value over time. So, invest in information, NOT excess inventory.

If you have the right information, you can hold less inventory. For your inventory management, the right information must be accurate, complete, continuously updated in real-time, easily accessible, and quickly digestible.

Which Warehouse Management System (WMS)?

An effective Warehouse Management System (WMS) is a crucial, integrated software control system that improves information and material flows and handling operations within a warehouse. These systems range from the most rudimentary to highly sophisticated offerings incorporating artificial intelligence and robotics. While a WMS is a vital investment, it can potentially be very costly if you have not researched carefully to achieve the desired return on our investment. When implemented effectively and maintained correctly, the right WMS fficiently manages information to achieve high levels of real-time visibility and control, nventory accuracy, throughput and superior customer service.
