Customers these days expect – and demand- more! How do you become more flexible and more agile (read: more customer-centric) in response?
Automating your systems is essential. But how do you embed business intelligence in your planning to ensure it yields benefits? And how do you translate those benefits into added value for your customers?
“We want to understand your supply chain: what’s going well and what’s going wrong. We don’t make assumptions, but we dig deep. We work not for but with your people, because that’s the only way to make changes stick and flourish.”
Ben Van Lancker, Head of Planning – Manufacturing
IBP and S&OP: We think end-to-end, for fully interconnected manufacturing and sales processes.
Demand planning: We improve your demand signal, capitalizing on the ins and outs of your business.
Supply planning: We optimize your end-to-end supply chain, for greater speed, efficiency and flexibility.
Production planning and scheduling: We translate your hidden manufacturing constraints into beatable planning challenges.
Distribution planning: We fully integrate your distribution planning within your end-to-end planning.
We install a broad framework to support and reinforce your core planning processes: one that takes your people, processes, governance, tools, data quality, business context, and business rules into account.
This holistic approach yields multiple cross-departmental benefits, from increased organizational efficiencies to reduced pressure on working capital and enhanced service levels.
We support you in rethinking your organizational structure and processes to help shape your business of tomorrow. We start with the real driving force of change within your organization: your people.
We use our own transformation methodology, MOUNTK, to make the intangible nature of change tangible.
We break the silos and ensure seamless alignment of different functions. We install a mindset of assumption-based decision making enabled by pragmatic scenario management.
Creating awareness throughout the full organization and coaching your team on all levels makes your organization ready to embed these step change improvements towards faster and better value-based decision making.
“We are in the middle of a wave where digital capabilities enable organisations to improve the efficiency & effectiveness of their planning. Within this business transformation, we stand by your side all the time.”
