SupplyPoint support government's cost saving initiatives through deployment of our management inventory solutions. This is achieved through approved pan government collaborative Framework agreements for use by public sector bodies.
A local government housing association faced challenging cost-cutting targets whilst having to enhance efficiency improvements in managing essential 24/7 PPE, Electrical, Plumbing and Building supplies services for the upkeep of essential services for its tenants
The main focus was:
• Immediate 24/7 point of use product availability
• Re-stocking of fast-moving products
• Reduce unnecessary ad-hoc procurement of expensive inefficient repeat purchase orders
• Eliminate wastage and un-controlled purchasing
The installed SupplyPoint solution has fulfilled the objective and is now being developed to scale up to other national housing association requirements
The initial challenge was understanding the current status of consumption usages and administrative procurement of critical items to support contractual KPI measures. This allowed SupplyPoint to configure the right solution first time to securely manage the individual product sizes, frequency of use and critical low moving items essential for immediate emergency usage. The SupplyPoint pre-sales team worked in collaboration with the integrator to qualify the hardware and IT services to remotely manage expected demand cycles.
SupplyPoint exceeded all expectations and provided an impressive scalable solution to bolt on additional future managed inventory-controlled products. SupplyPoint’s post-sale team could then deliver, install and commission all elements of the solution to allow the integrator to stock and replenish identified critical parts through a controlled and efficiently managed way.
How it Helped
The initial scope was to stock onsite parts and eliminate un-controlled and expensive out of hours emergency ordering. The RotoPoint and Locker combination coupled with remote WebSync services provides simple, visible dynamic stock holding and usages and now provides one consolidated monthly invoice to the end customer. Emerging new ad-hoc product purchases can now be tracked through a sustainable reporting method to allow capture of these parts into a secure controlled managed inventory process.
This ensures the managed inventory solution is consistently monitored and updated.
