All Logistical Details
Does Your IT Supplier Sweat the Details on Logistics?
Our workdays can be so intense. The demands keep increasing. Tasks and technology get only more complex. Organizations commonly assign more and more responsibilities to smaller and smaller teams. No one can rest on current productivity. The bar for what’s expected just keeps getting raised.
It’s not surprising, then, that so many organizations, in so many professional realms (industry, government, healthcare, education, nonprofit, and more), are electing to outsource their IT purchasing – some, much, most, or even all of it – to specialized suppliers. After all, how can a purchasing department, even an exceptionally well-staffed and highly skilled one, optimally manage hundreds of IT vendor relationships?
Of course, successful outsourcing depends on having an IT supplier that can handle all logistical details entailed. In Dynamic’s experience, these tasks typically include:
- Kitting, bundling, and tagging
- Custom labeling and shipping
- Order consolidation and certification
- Overseas delivery and customs management
- Special government requirements
- Real-time status and tracking
- Storage and warehousing
Dotting every I. Crossing every T. This is a critical success factor in effective vendor management. And it’s key to managing risk and ensuring quality in the IT supply chain. Today more than ever, this may require your organization to find the right IT purchasing partner. And that partner should have the proven ability to help you manage your projects and optimize your processes from end to end of the IT lifecycle.
