Case Study: UK Government Department
Developed a Cost to Deliver model
The client managed a highly volatile supply chain comprising a broad inventory range, an array of warehouses with multiple inventory, warehousing and financial systems. The cost to deliver was not understood with end customers not understanding the supply chain or financial implications of their decisions. Further, the client could not base line their operational spend, segment their customer base or understand cost driving customers/SKUs.
Data Sets Analysed
(In Scope Costs)
The Squarcle Solution

Fused together an array of complex data sets from a fractured UK Government Department and commercial ERP landscape. Conducted activity-based costing, mapping costs to activities, people, infrastructure and equipment. Applied advanced analytics and visualisation tools enabling the client to understand their supply chain costs and customer base
