Business Consulting

Tailor-made business consulting services.

We appreciate that every one of our customer’s businesses is different, with different challenges and different objectives. That is why each of our projects is carefully planned in conjunction with our customer’s management.

Our company only provides experienced and well qualified business consultants who have specialised in the area of Supply Chain, Logistics, Change management and Sales administration consultancy. So we fully understand broader business strategy and the role of Supply Chain and Logistics in supporting it.

Due to the dynamic nature of business, your organisation cannot stay the way it is. But managing change – across countries and multinational teams – is challenging. You need high level professionals who are up to date with the best industry practices, business process optimisation and latest technologies.

You also need a solution that is suited to your business’s particular needs and that will deliver long-term competitive benefits. That’s where BEVOLTA Management Consulting can help. We will work closely with you on critical change projects – from the post strategic vision through to delivery – to help you realise your full potential.

How BEVOLTA can help you

With our unique blend of specialist industry skills and transversal corporate functions, completed with technology know-how, we help you power your business change:

  • Our network of consultants offer a depth and breadth of knowledge you can access, wherever and whenever you need. Together with our unique local knowledge, the common approach of our international network enables us to deliver leading business performance improvement globally. We are a strongly multicultural organisation, which gives us a particular understanding of the challenges multinationals are facing.
  • Applying our methodology across a range of technologies and business processes, we will help you achieve sustained benefits – rather than just targeting short-term performance. We will work closely with you and your teams, at all levels, to develop a deeper understanding of your business.

Project Steps

Rather than taking the ’one size fits all’ approach of some consultants, we use a four-step process that spans the entire business transformation lifecycle, from the initial analysis through to full implementation.

Vision

Uses our knowledge of your organisation, developed with your teams, to set the strategic direction.

Shape

Takes our understanding of your pain to tailor a customised solution that delivers gain.

Change

Transforms your strategic vision into effective and valued change.

Deliver

Ensures that you get the maximum value and benefit from our delivery of the initial vision.

Company Areas

BEVOLTA Management Consulting has built a complete set of practices and tools to ensure all our consultants are consistent with this four step approach to provide core offerings across:

  • Technology and Software
  • Change Management
  • Training
  • Processes

Company Challenges

BEVOLTA has a proven track record of projects that have helped companies tackle the following challenges:

  • Customer service
    is all about providing the right product in the right quantity to the right place and the right time. Seems simple, but can get complicated…quickly.
  • Cost control
    Operating costs are under extreme pressure by rising energy/fuel and freight costs, greater number of global customers, technology, increasing labor rates and new regulations and rising commodity prices.
  • Planning & risk management
    In order to stay as efficient and effective as possible, periodic assessments and redesigns are needed. These adjustments are in response to changes in the market – changes such as new product launches, global sourcing, credit availability and the need to protect intellectual property. These risks must be identified and quantified in order to control and mitigate.
  • Supplier/partner relationship management
    It is important to create, understand and follow mutually agreed upon standards to better appreciate current performance and opportunities for improvement. Having two different methods for measuring and communicating performance and results wastes time and effort. Trust the system that was put in place for consistent results and better supplier/partner relationships.
  • Inventory
    The ultimate goal is to have the right amount of inventory in just the right places, to meet the organization’s overall goals for production performance – as well as meeting its obligations to comply with customer service delivery, health and safety, environmental and other regulations…easy right?

    • Never impacting performance through a stock-out, keeping both the Maintenance and Finance teams happy.
    • Aligning inventory with maintenance operations.
    • Improving the integrity and usability of the catalogue to ensure end-to-end supply chain efficiency.
    • Managing and optimizing vendors based on operational needs.

The concept of Supply Chain Management is based on two core ideas

1

The first is that practically every product that reaches an end user represents the cumulative effort of multiple organizations. These organizations are referred to collectively as the supply chain.

2

The second idea is that while supply chains have existed for a long time, most organizations have only paid attention to what was happening within their “four walls.” Few businesses understood, much less managed, the entire chain of activities that ultimately delivered products to the final customer. The result was disjointed and often ineffective supply chains.

Today’s supply chain solutions are complex

With plenty of potential for excess inventory, lower service levels, poorly defined and inconsistent processes.

BEVOLTA works with clients to design and implement high-performing supply chains based on next generation methods and technologies that enable profitable growth in new and existing markets. By combining innovative strategies with practical know-how, BEVOLTA helps companies to optimize their supply chains to their full potential.

BEVOLTA can provide clients with Supply Chain Planning expertise to develop and implement planning and collaboration strategies and software that improve cost efficiency, increase business effectiveness and create synergies and collaboration across companies.

Old Rules, Old Tools, New Pressures

  • Forecast error is on the rise
  • Complexity and Volatility in our supply chains is increasing at a faster rate than we can compensate for it
  • Legacy planning tactics and tools are breaking down
    • Inside most modern ERP systems is MRP
    • 79% of ERP Buyers implement MRP
    • Conceived in the 1950’s
    • Codified in the 1960’s
    • Commercialized in the 1970’s and…
    • …it hasn’t changed!

The "New Normal"

  • Global sourcing and demand
  • Shortened product life cycles
  • Shortened customer tolerance time
  • More product complexity and/or customization
  • Pressure for leaner inventories
  • Inaccurate forecasts
  • More product variety
  • Long lead time parts/components
