SUPPLY CHAIN CONSULTING

Supply chains today are increasingly interconnected, complex and global with many entities working in unison to source, convert and deliver products to customers.

A resilient supply chain can not only help enterprises respond swiftly and effectively to economic, technological and market disruptions, but also help them gain a competitive advantage. The goal of a resilient supply chain is to minimize negative impacts of these disruptions on revenues, costs and customers.

EP Tech’s supply chain consulting services help enterprises create and manage high-performing, resilient supply chains that drive sustained, profitable growth, even in the face of sudden, dramatic change.

Growing Strains on Global Supply Chains

In today’s increasingly volatile world, supply chains must be able to adapt to changes over which they have no control – natural disasters, political instability, regulation, and dramatic economic changes.

Add to that trends such as a rapidly changing technological and digital landscape, increasing demand for quality and differentiation, and scarcity of resources, which may put supply chains under tremendous pressure to perform.

PROCUREMENT TRANSFORMATION

Procurement’s role is evolving rapidly; the tactical team focused on cost reduction has been recast as a strategic entity driving enterprise-wide value. Enterprises worldwide are asking their procurement teams to play a larger and more strategic part in overall corporate growth and deliver sustainable business results. To be able to meet these new expectations, procurement organizations must transform their legacy processes, practices and structures, and align them with the current needs of the enterprise.As with any transformation program, the real challenge is in the implementation. Organizations often follow the path of building detailed transformation road maps and implementation plans, many times using outside expertise, but fail to realize the benefits in the real world.
