Our Services For

Supply Chain Planning Issues

ElevatIQ offers several services to help with this challenge, such as supply chain and operations transformation, supply chain technology architecture, supply chain software selection, sales and operations planning, inventory, warehouse, and logistics optimization.

Supply Chain and Operations Transformation

Our Supply Chain and Operations Transformation services start with an assessment of the current pain points with the current systems and existing supply chain processes, metrics, and technologies. The assessment results in building high-level as-is and to-be processes and change management and process reengineering recommendations. Depending upon the changes required, the changes could be as small as a process or data changes. Or a complete process and technology transformation.

Sales and Operations Planning

This service helps in optimizing sales and operations, whether your current issues might be related to demand forecasting, supply planning, or transportation planning. The service starts with the analysis and assessment of your current KPI and issues, followed by a root cause analysis, and then finally, a systemic change approach, whether the changes may be related to the processes or data.

Supply Chain Technology Architecture

This service helps build supply chain technology architecture depending upon the number of systems involved in different areas of supply chain planning such as S&OP, TMS, WMS, OMS, or FMS. This service ensures the process boundaries of different systems, including master data governance workflows, and how all the systems would work together to deliver on the process and planning goals as per desired KPIs.

Inventory, Warehousing, and Logistics Optimization

This service helps with inventory, warehousing, and logistics optimization whether you are struggling with inventory excess and obsolescence issues, or whether you are trying to improve any KPIs such as dock-to-stock ratio or inventory turns. This service takes a comprehensive approach to analyzing your current warehouse design, material flow, and network design. And finally recommends any changes, whether they might be system or process related to meet the efficiency goals.

Supply Chain Software Selection

This service helps in selecting different supply chain software, including buy vs. build decisions. The process starts with setting clear boundaries of the process and interaction flow for the desired component, then building requirement and solution matrix to evaluate different solutions, including RFP development, vendor negotiations, and the voting process for the selection.

Supply Chain Network Design and Footprint Optimization

This service helps in designing the network when you might either be 3PL or need a complete supply chain traceability across carriers. As each shipment moves through each movement, your traceability challenges could be figuring out how you might be able to optimize the container space and revenue. As well as building the Supply Chain control tower.
