We were approached by two clients in the space of two weeks to discuss managing their expediting process.
The clients identified that their supply chain departments were spending about 27% of their time on managing the expediting process. This was tying up valuable resources which could have otherwise focused their time and efforts on more value-adding activities.
The expediting process was very manual and used spreadsheets with no visibility of real-live data.
Having agreed in principle to manage the process, we advised the client that rather than replacing their staff with our team, we can develop an eExpediting solution that would allow them to manage the process with a significantly reduced administrative burden.
The overall result was an improvement of 20% in time and costs spent on expediting activities for both clients. 80:20’s eExpediting technology also provided the clients with real-time visibility of their supply chain at all times.
