Effective strategy from Maine Pointe goes beyond immediate response to stabilize, recover and rebalance the supply chain for both short- and long-term strategy
as published on PRWeb
Boston, Mass., June 1, 2020 – Major companies continue to struggle even as the world begins the slow and complex process of opening up while addressing the continuing challenges of the pandemic and associated economic headwinds. Global supply chain and operations consulting firm Maine Pointe continues to offer value-driven supply chain consultancy services designed to safely guide and accelerate companies through this unprecedented time.
“Consultancy services are often relationship based, meaning person-to-person, with Maine Pointe working directly with company leaders,” said Steven Bowen, Founder and CEO of Maine Pointe. “And as companies continue remote operations, shutdowns and restarts with company executives working remotely from their home offices or in offices with less than 20% of the people present, they need expert guidance now more than ever. Maine Pointe is proud to be able to continue offering tailored supply chain and operations services to address issues through our flexible onsite/offsite global delivery model.”
Working remotely using advanced digital solutions, Maine Pointe addresses both short-term stabilization, recovery and the need for long-term rebalancing to meet the permanent changes in business. The three-step method, stabilize-recover-rebalance, begins by addressing the current challenge while planning for recovery, and then reassessing the entire supply chain operation for a long-term rebalancing.
Maine Pointe’s remote/offsite supply chain services represent a proven alternative way of delivering consulting services, analytics and implementation. Using cloud-based team collaboration and remote working tools, Maine Pointe consultants continue to efficiently work with clients’ team members and bring in Maine Pointe’s subject matter experts, supply chain professionals and advanced analytics capabilities continuing to drive cost, cash and growth improvements rapidly.
In one real-world example, Maine Pointe was able to implement a new supply chain operation for a client in under six months despite the challenges that were created when the pandemic hit. As part of the process, Maine Pointe implemented its remote capabilities to help the client stand up a new supply chain operation that included reshoring to reduce pandemic-driven risk, free up 15 percent of inventory and release cash, and reduce supply chain costs while improving performance. Maine Pointe was also able to remotely deliver a six-level spend cube and deploy data and visualization tools to help another client better understand inventory.
“Consulting firms will need to shift their delivery models to accommodate a growing need for remote and digital delivery,” said Simon Knowles Maine Pointe’s Chief Marketing Officer. “Maine Pointe is on the leading edge of that trend with new methodologies, advanced data, visualization tools and remote visibility to assist each client as they move through the stabilize-recover-rebalance roadmap.”
Maine Pointe’s remote digital supply chain services offers the same value, EBITDA improvements and bottom-line savings as the consultancy’s conventional on-site model. Regardless of whether the engagement is on-site or remote, clients still receive a consistent ROI of between 4:1 and 8:1 for each engagement.
