Consulting and audit of enterprises from the School of Logistics – a guaranteed result
Cooperation with the Kyiv Logistics School is the way to develop your business. Our team will help form a list of steps that will contribute to the achievement of the goals and plans of your company.
Vivid examples of results from consulting projects:
- Project in the direction of warehouse activities of one of the leading suppliers and manufacturers of building materials.
Result: an increase in the efficiency of warehouse activities by 60%.
- A project to improve the regional division’s operational efficiency of the distribution market leader.
Result: a 40% reduction in wage bill costs.
- A project to improve the operational efficiency of a regional dairy producer.
Result: an increase in the level of customer service by 7%, up to 98%.
- Project in the direction of warehouse activities of one of the leading manufacturers of wallpaper coverings.
Result: a 19% reduction in operating costs.
A simple statistical data analytics system
The School of Logistics provides the fastest processing of the statistical data of the Customer’s company, using standard data request templates that are adaptable to any specifics of the work of the logistics unit.
If the Customer’s company fails to upload data to the required template, the data is restructured from the company’s system (for example, 1C). Due to this, the enterprise at the exit receives complete adaptation for further analysis, accounting, and statistics, which can easily integrate into their information systems.
Services and a high degree of customer focus of the Kyiv Logistics School in consulting projects
Direct audit of business processes is carried out at the required logistics hub. The result of field meetings on the Customer’s territory is a detailed map diagram of business processes indicating all timings, areas of responsibility of business units, and types of incoming and outgoing flows. One of the main benefits that the Customer receives is a preliminary conclusion, in which assumptions about possible growth zones are voiced, some of which will be further proven or refuted based on the analysis of statistical information. Others can be implemented immediately and bring a positive economic effect already before writing a final report.
The most important thing that distinguishes the School of Logistics consulting from any other is operational indicators and metrics. This set of metrics is formed and adapted to the individual requirements and specifics of the work of the Customer’s company. Thanks to this code, the company receives an accurate assessment of its economic activities compared with similar players on the market. In the future, it can use them to control its logistics activities.
Analysis of actual indicators and comparison with planned ones is a rather delicate process because, on the correctness of the assessment of actual results and the correctness of building a strategy for achieving intended results, the success of achieving an economic effect depends. That is why the School of Logistics uses two approaches:
- The most reliable is to conduct experiments with the implementation of recommendations at the logistics hub. It also allows you to audit optimized business processes and, if necessary, take immediate corrective actions.
- If it is impossible to conduct experiments, this is a dynamic simulation of optimized processes and resources formed based on a preliminary analysis of the logistics node. The details of the work logic are discussed at strategic sessions with the Customer.
Consulting projects results
For the successful assimilation of information, analytical data is converted into interactive infographics and dashboards that allow you to get acquainted with all the innovations and adjust each element of optimization.
Based on the results of the work done, a report is formed, which describes in detail each step taken, optimization instructions with the expected result. The report integrates all the necessary analytical data: tables, diagrams, infographics, a set of operational indicators for further analysis, and the desired economic effect after implementing the project.
We held a presentation after which the Customer will not have any questions, uncertainties, and doubts but will have a detailed, clear, accurate, the specified time frame and, often, a simple action plan to optimize and improve the efficiency of the logistics link or the entire supply chain.
