Our streamlined global procurement processes will dramatically lower your costs, improve your efficiency and grow your bottom line.
Working with your Approved Vendor List (AVL) or through our own manufacturers, we will identify the target community and shortlist the best Original Design Manufacturers (ODMs) or contract manufacturers depending on your specifications.
We will rigorously evaluate the shortlisted manufacturers, quality assess each of their factories and processes, selecting our preferred company with your approval.
We will manage all aspects of the manufacturer relationship, including materials planning, quality assurance, pricing, and shipment of finished goods or component parts to your specified global locations.
We will analyse your historical and forecasted production data, along with your current run rates to help you maximise the use of your production resources while ensuring you have sufficient capacity to meet fluctuating customer demands.
Our dedicated factory management team will globally source vendors that meet your production requirements as well as your cost and quality specifications.
Each potential supplier to your business will be assessed to determine production output potential and ensure sufficient capacity to meet your future customer demand.
We will minimise your supply chain risk by sourcing and actively managing additional manufacturers for your products. This ensures that your production capacity does not suffer in the event that your principal supplier is unable to fulfil orders
VENDOR LICENSE AND CERTIFICATION
We will ensure that all suppliers to your business are fully licensed and certified, ensuring that all your products are sourced from quality, reputable companies.
Our factory management teams conduct regular surprise inspections and a range of supplier audits covering systems, processes, products and documentation.
We can provide on-site production monitoring, reviewing areas such as production capacity and control points to deliver efficiency improvements through process engineering.
APPROVED VENDOR LIST (AVL) MANAGEMENT
We will work with your own AVL, negotiate terms on your behalf, on-board the chosen supplier, manage all orders and provide you with a regular supplier performance report.
We will consolidate your supply base and become your Alpha Supplier, managing numerous suppliers on your behalf, reducing complexity in your business and ensuring you only receive one invoice. We can also work with your own AVL and manage suppliers under your negotiated terms and conditions, assuming total management ownership of the supply base on your behalf.
We will analyse your historical and forecasted production data to ensure you have the optimal level of inventory at your required locations to rapidly respond to your customer demands.
VENDOR MANAGED INVENTORY (VMI)
We will finance the procurement of your inventory, manage and maintain this in our ownership and deliver it to your required locations on a Just-in-Time (JIT) basis, meaning you only pay for your goods on consumption.
Through our global network of wholly owned and third party warehousing facilities, we can store and manage raw materials and spare parts close to your factory or office locations ensuring you have short lead time access to inventory on demand. Along with standard warehousing, we can also deploy GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) and GDP (Good Distribution Practice) facilities.
