  • IoT’s surprising impact on revolutionizing inventory management

    You know disruptive technologies have reached the tipping point when non-IT pros build business plans around them. This is exactly what’s happening with IoT. Because of its ability to drive wide-ranging, game-changing improvements, IoT is starting to be used across all aspects of business operations. One of the newest, and most impactful, areas is spare parts inventory management, a key aspect of the post-sale supply chain.

  • Dynamic Duo: How Data & Visibility Prevent Warranty Fraud, Mitigate Losses

    Warranty fraud seems to be a fact of life. If your business is like many electronics companies, you’ve had plenty of customers avoid service charges by having faulty products repaired at no cost without active warranties. You’ve had them obtain products for free by claiming, and sometimes re-selling, replacement parts/products without returning broken ones.

  • New Asset Recovery Benchmarks Drive Supply Chain Optimization Sky-High

    Are you confident your company is achieving the best possible asset recovery results? Do you know whether your return rate could go a few points higher? Or how feasible it would be to slash five, 10 or even 20 percent off your days of inventory?

Often, they’re not aggressive enough, which means companies are leaving a lot of money on the table and dissatisfied customers in their wake.

  • Five Keys to More Profitable Deliveries

    Product uptime is the Holy Grail. But for providers of home medical equipment, it’s also expensive to ensure, with costly skilled field workers required to maintain these machines.

  • Navigating the Uncertain New World of Outcome-Based Outsourcing

    The days of paying supply chain outsourcers by number of FTEs are on their way out.

Instead, OEMs are now exploring outcome-based models, where sellers become partners who share the risks and rewards of achieving their goals.
