Global PC Manufacturer - Project Management


Review of supply chain costs and distribution model,

Web-store implementation


The Problems

Uncompetitive manufacturing and logistics cost base - Failed web-store requiring urgent replacement


What we did

1. Project managed a multinational team based in the USA, UK and Europe to:

   • review PC and laptop manufacturing, logistics and distribution costs

   • financial modeling of distribution cost scenarios


2. Project managed the implementation of a bespoke web-store requiring process design of working practices, business rules and interfaces between the web-store, accounting, manufacturing and logistics.


3. Strategy review and option generation for an OEM relationship


Results

•   Transfer of manufacturing from the UK to a European OEM

•   Successful ‘on-time’ implementation of web-store within the consumer call centre


‘I would like to thank you for the job you did on our direct business set-up in the UK. Your work has been more than valuable in a very difficult environment. The successful launch despite the technical issues was a challenge and we owe you a significant chunk of this success. It has been a pleasure working with you. We may have the opportunity to work together in the future.’
