Having completed the initial design phase of a new inventory management and supply chain software system, one spare parts business requested the roll-out of both halves in parallel. Taking a two-pronged approach to roll out would speed up implementation by approximately 24 months and deliver ROI quicker.
With many technical and logistical challenges to overcome, rolling these systems out in echelon was not without risk.
Through a period of strategic consultation, it was agreed that the inventory management system would be rolled out to all regions for just one brand, whilst the supply system would be piloted in the UK for a separate brand so that further benefits could be enabled quickly.
With the entire inhouse team implementing the new system alongside their day jobs, and both brands in question handling significant volume of product, an error in implementation could cause a considerable negative impact on business functionality. Our consultants worked tirelessly to ensure all challenges were overcome strategically and in a timely fashion.
To manage such a complex requirement, Supply Chain Precision appointed a senior team of specialists who implemented rigorous manual testing, a bespoke training package and daily project management calls, together with a bolstered team on hand for go-live.
This comprehensive solution ensured the double roll-out was a success for a multi-disciplinary team working across numerous brands in a fast-paced environment.
