All supply chain consultants are not the same. The word “consultant” is loosely used by folks who lost their job and work from their basement as well as companies that benefit financially from the products and services, they recommend to you. Here is what makes us different -
Top Ten Reasons to Choose OPSdesign Consulting:
Our complete independence from vendors protects your interests. Many consultants claim to be independent; few can prove it. We can furnish an affidavit from our accounting firm stating we have a single source of revenue, client paid fees. We do not sell equipment or software. We do not “partner” with vendors. We do not accept finder’s fees or commissions from hardware or software suppliers. As truly independent supply chain consultants, we protect your interests.
02. CLIENT SATISFACTION
As much as 30% of our annual workload consists of finishing projects that other supply chain/logistics consultants started, yet we have NEVER been asked to leave a project. The large majority of our workload comes from repeat engagements and client referral. We play well in the sandbox with others and act as part of your team to achieve your goals.
03. NO COOKIE-CUTTER SOLUTIONS
Your business is unique and so are our designs. Since we are not aligned with any vendor organizations, we have a much greater field of options to consider. Processes, systems, infrastructure, and labor alternatives must stand on their own merits as part of an engineered cost/benefit analysis.
04. A CLEAR MISSION
Our goals are simple. Everything we do is aimed at adding value, reducing cost, assuring quality, and compressing time in your operations. By focusing on these objectives, we help our clients achieve a strategic advantage and tactical superiority. We deliver the high service-level / low-cost solution.
05. FLEXIBILITY, SCALABILITY & RISK MITIGATION
When designing supply chain operations, we identify and sensitivity test volatile model elements to allow our designs to support growth, absorb business changes, smooth operational turbulence, and mitigate risk.
06. PRAGMATIC ELEGANCE TO ROCKET SCIENCE
Whether designing a traditional low-tech warehouse operation or engineering some of the most highly automated supply chain operations on the planet, we focus on developing best process first. Only then do we define the required infrastructure, systems, and labor alternatives to support the business needs.
07. DEPTH OF EXPERIENCE
Our experience in designing E-commerce, direct-to-consumer (DTC), wholesale distribution, retail replenishment, and manufacturing support operations in a variety of industries allows us to cross-pollinate and help our clients identify and apply best practices. Our clients include many of the world’s largest and most recognizable companies as well as smaller privately held companies seeking the tools to compete and grow.
08. INDUSTRY LEADERSHIP
We are recognized thought leaders and subject matter experts. Our staff has been commissioned to author and have published a number of books and our articles/interviews are regularly printed in magazines and trade journals. We regularly speak at national trade conferences and hold seats on the executive boards of respected supply chain professional societies.
09. REAL RESULTS
We deliver actionable supply chain optimization recommendations and plans - not just reports. Our work has increased service levels and dropped millions of dollars to the bottom line for our clients. Our clients attest to the fact that our professional fees are typically minor in comparison to the ongoing savings we help them achieve.
Call it silly, but we believe that logistics and supply chain projects should be challenging and fun. We’ll come to the project meetings with the right attitude and a box of donuts as our way of starting off the day with a smile. We like our work; we like our clients, and it shows. We think you’ll like working with us too.
