Our go to market approach for deploying our SCM service line is organized across four domains: Supply Chain Strategy, eProcurement & B2B exchanges, eFulfillment and Collaborative Commerce Techologies.
Supply Chain Strategy
Narvy Consultants, Inc., assits enterprises adopt Supply Chain Management (SCM) technology at different phases depending on their strategy and their level of technology adoption aggressiveness:
Enterprises (i.e., technology-driven enterprises, who are often willing to risk using immature, cutting-edge technologies to gain a competitive edge) and have implemented Supply Chain Planning integrated suites (although not always globally), and are now evaluating or implementing ERP II SCM and collaborative supply chain technologies.
Many large enterprises (i.e., moderate technology adopters, which implement new technologies once they have proved to be useful and have entered the mainstream) are in the process of evaluating and implementing Supply Chain Planning integrated suites, which combine demand, tactical manufacturing, finite capacity and transportation planning.
Enterprises who are technologically risk-averse and cost-conscious enterprises, who are vary to adopt new technologies and focussed on implementing niche solutions and experimenting with SCP integrated suites.
In order to cater to the varied needs of our clients our Supply Chain Strategy groups focus on:
Determine the Supply Chain Maturity of a client and recommend a solution based on their unique requirements.
Review new business SCM models with clients (e.g Network Optimization, eSCM and collaborative planning)
Define requirements before evaluating vendor SCM systems
Recognize that more than one vendor may be required to realize your SCM goals – focus on bringing a best of breed solution
Focus on appropriate implementation time frame, balancing business and project risk
Continually re-evaluate implementations as business needs change
Provide ongoing analysis of ROI and value of SCM implementation
eProcurement and B2B exchanges
Inorder to realize procurement savings, it is essential for companies to have a unifying procurement solution to help capture and reconcile all spend. For businesses to successfully manage and leverage all spend categories, users should have the capability of buying both basic and complex configurable products and services directly from approved suppliers. Successful procurement hinges on accelerated user and supplier adoption. Using tools from leading vendors such as Ariba, Commerce One and SAP Markets, we help clients adapt prominent eProcurement solutions.
We enable our clients to harness the power of B2B exchanges or eMarkets. In the new on-line world, we believe that eMarkets will play a key role in bringing the benefits of eCommerce to companies of all sizes. When properly positioned, these eMarket solutions companies can add considerable value in setting up eMarketplaces and/or information hubs, in aggregating buyers, sellers, content and services, in managing relationships, and meeting the changing requirements of various industries and company-specific value chains. In practice, B2B eCommerce can be applied to a variety of business functions/areas that will benefit from transitioning from traditional business processes that were slow, inefficient, and expensive to eBusiness processes that are real-time, efficient and more cost-effective. We assist our clients through different deployment phases of eMarkets, namely Design, Integrate & Particiapte and Operate eMarkets.
The critical elements required to transform an enterprise’s manually based fulfillment process into an integrated multichannel electronic fulfillment process are the same whether the enterprise deals with consumers or business clients. Almost 40 percent of the cost of selling online is incurred during the fulfillment process — i.e., during payment processing, order fulfillment, and pick, pack and ship. If these elements are not handled efficiently, effectively and reliably, then mistakes happen, costs are driven out of the competitive zone and customer relationships break down. Our fullfillment professionals deploy best of breed Payment processing, order fulfillment and product shipping solutions. Using tools from leading vendors such as Cayenta and Yantra we help clients adapt prominent Fullfillment solutions to satisfy our clients and thier customers needs.
Collaborative Commerce Technologies
Collaboration in product design, supply planning and procurement offers manufacturers top-line improvement with new product opportunities and accelerated times to market. While collaborative efficiencies in production and distribution logistics can drive bottom-line results, collaboration also facilitates responsive manufacturing where goods are made to customers’ orders and new levels of service are achieved. The need to address the full scope of collaboration in support of e-business processes is supported by Narvy Consultants, Inc., although current products are still limited. Our current focus lays on deploying the best-of-breed Collaborative Product development, Collaborative Planning and Forecasting utilizing tools such as Agile, MatrixOne and PTC
Within the supply chain, interpersonal collaboration is so far emerging most strongly in support of design functions, inherently a collaborative activity, and is the most mature of the outward-facing SCM processes (e.g., design, demand planning, vendor-managed inventory).
