Lifesaving Global Supply Chain Drives out Costs, Improves Customer Delivery

Challenge: A leading supplier of specialist medical devices and equipment for global markets was humming along nicely until a critical part was not delivered on time, and an important customer became unhappy. Clearly the ERP system was not good enough - Supply Chain Visibility and Supplier Collaboration were required to ensure mistakes of this magnitude never happened again. Other objectives included: Reduce raw material inventory levels; Increase inventory turns by 20%; Reduce manual processes; Reduce expediting; Continue to meet or exceed customer service levels; Promote stronger, collaborative relationship between buyers and suppliers.
