Keeping up with consumer expectations
In this day and age, people have come to expect that they can place an order for something they need or want, blink, and poof … it’s there. OK, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but you catch our drift, right?
Getting products to customers as quickly as possible, and in a way that allows you to “keep up” with the expectations of current day consumers requires that you think strategically about distribution. How many distribution centers do you have? Are they in the right locations? What would be the bottom line impact on your business, from both financial and customer satisfaction standpoints, if you opened an additional distribution center, closed one down, consolidated sites or relocated a site? Sure, it sounds like a big undertaking.
But it very well could be one worth pursuing if the changes you make would reduce your cost and / or your time to serve.
These strategic decisions require … well … strategy.
This is where Nexterus can step up to the plate and help you fully assess your current distribution model, determine if it makes sense, and ultimately implement changes that can positively impact your business.
Our best-in-class technology takes the guesswork out of the equation, making your opportunities for network optimization very clear based on what you are selling, who you are selling it to, where you are shipping it to and how quickly your customer expects it to be there.
Call us. Nexterus has invested in some pretty powerful software to automate these assessments and determine if what you’ve got is working, or can work better … or if you actually DO need more space.
