THE CHALLENGES OUR CUSTOMERS FACE

We support our clients in overcoming their challenges, always with the focus on realizing customer-centric growth 

Matching increased customer expectations

How we support

Your challenge

Customer needs are rapidly changing and increasing. How to make sure that we stay connected to the customer and deliver the products and services they want in a consistent way?

Coping with increased complexity

How we support

Your challenge

Increased customer needs result often in an explosion of products and services, a complex distribution network and ad-hoc processes that turn the organization in fire-fighting mode. How to find the right balance in this changing, complex environment?

Find the right balance between service, cost & cash

Your challenge

Supply chain is the linking pin between your customers and both internal and external supply. Finding the balance between service, cost and cash is realized by implementing aligned business rules, having the correct distribution network and integrated processes to deliver the customer promise in a consistent way.

How we support

OUR SERVICES

End-to-end

supply chain planning

We support you in assessing, defining and implementing both supply planning tactics (planning strategy, production frequencies, safety stock optimization) as well as demand and supply planning processes. We cover the entire planning horizon from 5-10 year strategic planning, tactical S&OP to operational planning and scheduling. We improve your demand signal by bringing quantitative and qualitative information from inside and outside the organization together. We look at planning in a transversal way, aligning the different functions and stakeholders to make better, fact-based decisions.

Network & distribution optimization

We create a distribution model that provides full visibility and transparency on your entire distribution network, taking into account the main cost drivers, capability constraints and current service requirements. Together we identify relevant scenarios to show impact on cost, service and inventory. We add the future business scenarios, new (potential) requirements from customer, legal or tax perspective and add degrees of freedom (for mid and long term horizon) to define a relevant distribution network that evolves over time.

Customer service transformation

We look further than the setup of your customer service department. It starts with a clear customer segmentation and a need based fit-for-purpose customer experience that requires customer centricity throughout your entire organization. We look at the entire customer journey and see how front and back office, sales, supply chain and quality from a process, organization and platform perspective work towards the right end-to-end customer experience.
