Supply Chain Audit


Supply chain excellence has a real impact on business strategy. Supply chain management is a high impact mission that goes to the roots of a company's very competitiveness. High-impact supply chains win market share and customer loyalty, create shareholder value, extend the strategic capability and reach of the business.


Independent research shows that excellent supply chain management can yield:


25-50% reduction in total supply chain costs


25-60% reduction in inventory holding


25-80% increase in forecast accuracy


30-50% improvement in order-fulfilment cycle time


20% increase in after-tax free cash flows


That's what we mean by high-impact.
