Supply Chain

The challenge of your Supply Chain Management: How to present yourself according to the actual needs of current and future customers?

 

As a distributor, you want to maximise revenue from your network while minimising costs.

As an industry, you want to maximise the performance of your operations to increase competitiveness.

Whatever your industry, you are increasingly required to become more agile.

How to provide the service and at the same time allow the development of new services?

How to strengthen the innovation capacity of your supply chain?

How to adapt your logistics schemes without increasing costs to support your geographical development or that of your customers?

The instruments that must be activated to transform your supply chain and control costs relate to all the processes linked to operations.

The main issues that must be addressed are as follows:

  •    Purchasing performance: How to monitor supplier performance? Which sourcing strategy?
  • Industrial performance: How to improve productivity? How to optimise availability without increasing stocks? How to reduce maintenance costs? How to make your forecasts more reliable?
  •   Logistics performance: How to design an agile distribution network? How to optimise logistics operations?
  • Customer performance: Which service policy? How to optimise the processes of the cycle from order to collection? How to raise customer satisfaction?

Marketing

Currently, the marketing and business functions are open to the world to address key strategic challenges and, at the same time, to manage increasingly limited budgets

 

Digital strategies, smart data, strength of design, performance measurement, outsourcing… The multiplication of tools in the marketing and sales departments, customer trends and the demands of general management with regard to return on investment now forces these managers to adopt new operational methodologies and open up to the world in order to meet their challenges.

After a period of prosperity the financial crisis struck, while the Internet and now the pressure to deliver real perceived value and dynamic management have been strongly felt:

  •     Systematic monitoring of the impact of marketing actions
  • Cross-cutting and transparent operation with internal and external partners (purchasing, sales, agencies, etc.)
  • Expertise in all facets of marketing
  •   Control of costs and budget contraction
  •    Pressures to outsource the sales force

However, as always, all of these changes provide great opportunities for those who know how to turn a good understanding of the activity into relevant actions.

To do this, they must rely on external partners who possess some real expertise in the activity that combines the use of appropriate tools with control of overall costs.

 

KLB Group supports you in implementing your transformation projects

 

Since 1995, KLB Group supports marketing roles (customer marketing, trade marketing, agencies, subcontractors) in their transformation projects and in the implementation of operational projects with a particular emphasis on performance measurement, control of costs and innovation.

Now delivering more services, KLB Group’s “Finance & Innovation” Business unit renamed “Tax and Finances Solutions” to coincide with CFOs new needs.

 

Franc Palomino 

This slightly improvement is designed to take advantage of the transformations and innovations in the Finance industry and the changing demands of CFOs in an increasingly global and complex world.

KLB Group will now thicken up its Finance & Innovation (FI) businesses to consolidate its portfolio into a more exhaustive and relevant Business Unit called Tax and Finances Services (TFS). This will allow users to challenge and perform the entire Finance cycle, from tax credit, subsidies, Patent Box and Bonuses for researches to R&D developments and Local Taxes, including IBI and IAE. 

For Franc Palomino, Director of the Business Unit Tax and Finance Services"This positioning is an important step forward. As well as providing a unique source of technical knowledges, it highlights consistency of our initiatives that have led our clients to success all around the word.“
