Supply Chain Management

To all intents and purposes, the boundary between producers and retailers no longer exists. At the same time, expectations of high-quality data and efficient IT support are rising. All this requires clear strategies, which are becoming more and more difficult to develop because growing digitalisation and a global political framework, which is shifting almost daily, make any forecasting a difficult task. On top of this, consumers are becoming ever more demanding, and the shift towards cheaper sourcing locations has long ceased to suffice.

We are working for you in many bodies, producing new process chain models and associated IT architectures, proactively expanding existing boundaries. Every bit of this knowledge flows through into our SCM strategies, giving our clients real competitive edge. We do all this to ensure your process chains give your consumers exactly the product and value-for-money they expect from you.

We support our customers on the following topics:
  • Network design, organisation design, process design
  • Innovative flows of information, goods and money within networks
  • Optimum product development as the starting point for any supply chain
  • Integrated planning and control
  • Built-in quality management which takes account of lean management and sustainability
  • Networking stakeholders via EDI or SCM software
  • KPI performance measurement systems
  • Optimising inventory levels and improving time to market speed

Business Process Management

Running different business models in parallel as part of a multi-channel marketing strategy, demographic changes and the growing role of online retailing all call for greater precision and professionalization of processes across all business disciplines. Complexities in global markets and distribution models, and also in procurement and logistics, require clearly structured, lean processes which are also reflected in the IT systems.

We will help you build and organise entire heterogeneous process architectures and use our outside view (a necessary ingredient) to put your processes in great shape. This can take the form of helping you produce a comprehensive restructuring plan or assisting operationally with on-site implementation of changes.
We have the expertise to work with you to develop tailored concepts that are suited to you and assist you where you really need it.

About us

Company details

The requirements of the fashion, sports, luxury goods and footwear segments are highly diverse. Our customers are faced with the challenge, in addition to their core wholesaling business, of being capable partners to retailers and also customer-focused traders for the consumer. On top of this, all business models have to be professionally constructed for use at home and abroad as well as functioning efficiently across a variety of sales channels which may operate in parallel or be interlinked.

Reducing complexity and making it manageable is one of the key management tasks of our time. Growing the company's performance and achieving goals at the same time calls, especially in our key industry, for specific expertise in corporate and strategic development, process organisation and IT. These diverse skills are something which it is scarcely economical for individual companies to keep on hand. Staying on the ball in the face of such a wide range of challenges is possible only by means of consistent modernisation, flexible structures and use of the very latest process standards. br />
As an operational consulting firm which has been around for 20 years, we will help you examine your general framework, environment and processes in considerable depth in order to make them fit for the respective challenges of our time.
