Manufacturers around the world need to meet the demand for shorter cycles of innovation, products designed around customer needs and global service support. To this end they require excellent operational structures and processes as well as agile, responsive supply chains and effective product portfolio management. Most companies cannot offer all this without massive investment in business management and IT capability.
Our team provides dedicated, flexible business and IT solutions to many world-class manufacturing clients. We bring a global outlook to product development units, provide customer focus and market knowledge to sales organisations and help organisations enjoy effective and strategic procurement sourcing, lean production processes and full life-cycle service capabilities globally.
Our wide-ranging solutions include:

Sales departments need to respond flexibly and quickly to market demands in order to supply goods and provide satisfaction to customers. Yet their ability to do so is constrained by decreasing capital commitments.
With our Supplier Relationship Management you can benefit from SAP-based process acceleration, cost optimization and reduction, and supply strategy improvement.
The financial crisis of 2008/2009 showed the weakness of many companies in synchronizing their supply chain. The massive decline in sales posed big challenges to manufacturing companies.
