The Six Focus Areas of Plantensive’s Supply Chain Optimization Services:

Supply Chain Segmentation Analysis

Segmentation Strategies – We work with clients to identify product, supplier, and customer segments and then use historical data to align supply and customer fulfillment strategies to squeeze incremental profit from their supply chain. We add dimensions to your ABC classification to optimize supply strategies to reduce costs while still exceeding customer service levels.

Plantensive Supply Chain Diagnostic

Our rapid operations assessment capability uses best practice concepts and insights researched by both the Gartner DDVN Maturity Model® and SCOR Model® that delivers a logical and ROI-based Roadmap for improvement within a 90-day window.

Project Readiness Assessments

Within a short period of time we determine your current organizational capability across People | Process | Technology and make realistic recommendations to shore up weaknesses before an expensive and business critical project is started to ultimately reduce implementation risk.

Integrated Business Planning

We work within the bounds of your corporate structure and culture to build an integrated business planning process that extends your S&OP intelligence to include supply chain strategy, product development, diverse customer demand, and supplier capacity. We help our clients implement processes and technologies to enable informed decision making to link the corporate strategic plan with the annual operating plan.

Software Requirements Analysis

We assess your current business processes that will be impacted by new technology and map those capabilities to supply chain optimization functionality by the leading software technologies in the industry and assess software vendors that provide best-fit capabilities. We then provide an independent recommendation that considers cost, requirement-fit, anticipated complexity of implementation and overall usability by your business.
