Core Products

The drive to minimise production costs has driven companies to search around the globe for the most favourable manufacturing environment; Europe yesterday, China today, perhaps India tomorrow?

However, lower manufacturing costs are not the only consideration. Quality and delivery lead times are key factors which, in some cases, are resulting in production being returned closer to home to achieve faster response times and reduced stocks.

As such we can deliver a powerful solution that works not just in theory but also in the hard commercial reality of today’s business environment. And it means you will see the tangible results of our thinking on the ground in your day-to-day operations..

In the face of an ever-changing business environment, if you’re to create and maintain an advantage over your competition, you need answers to some fundamental questions.

What are your customers doing? Your competitors? How about other best-in-class organisations? What’s changing in the market?

Your business needs to know all of this and more before committing to a major supply chain or operations change. This is where our global supply chain research and benchmarking services can help.

We provide both quantitative and qualitative performance data on best-in-class supply chain and business operations, customer service and market trends throughout the world. And we can undertake tailored research and benchmarking studies and interpret what that data means and how it can provide real value to your business.

This gives you the empirical data you need to help support your decision making.
