Supporting a supply chain transformation
A venture funded direct to consumer brand that sells both physical and digital products through their sales channels.
Our client was beginning to undergo a supply chain transformation to better handle growth impacting their physical goods business. As part of their transformation, the client desired to implement a new Warehouse Management System (WMS) and Inventory Management System (IMS).
Due to tight timelines and potential impacts to operations during holiday season, our client needed external support to identify a right-sized WMS / IMS platform and then lead the implementation of the solution.
Aberdeen was initially brought in to conduct a WMS / IMS package assessment. After the initial assessment, Aberdeen was responsible for the business requirements and project management tracks of the implementation.
As part of the engagement, Aberdeen was able to:
Define and document detailed operations, finance, warehouse management and inventory management business requirements. This allowed our client to examine their and optimize their processes for future growth
Conduct a thorough fit-gap assessment of standard WMS/IMS features vs. requirements to identify, prioritize, and mitigate gaps arising from process or technology changes
Lead the successful rollout of WMS / IMS solution that provided a single source of truth into the entire supply chain lifecycle
