Case Study:
Project Staging
The Challenge
Telecommunications is a highly competitive environment where clients demand rapid installation and/or upgrade of communications equipment with strict adherence to project timelines.
A leading, national communications provider required staging and redeployment of high-tech components for installation by third-party workforces.

The Opportunity
The components were highly complex and costly, had varying lead times, and were sourced from around the world. Components were being shipped from manufacturers directly to job sites.

The uncoordinated delivery of components to the field meant unclear accountabilities for title of the orders, higher material administration costs by installation crews and risk of product pilferage. The client turned to Progistix to engineer and implement a project staging solution that would consolidate and improve the efficient distribution of components.

The Solution
The Progistix solution delivered improved efficiency, reduced inventory costs and provided superior business intelligence. The features of the solution are:
  •  
     
    Shipment of a single, consolidated load from multiple suppliers and stocking sources (warehouse-stocked and non-stocked components) was coordinated with the availability of field installation crews.
  • Since most high-tech products are too costly to inventory and are subject to high obsolescence rates because of short product life cycles, these components were sourced on an as-needed basis and shipped by the client’s vendor to Progistix. Components were then consolidated with other stocked items.
  • Onsite delivery was coordinated with the installation crews in order to avoid loss of products or pilferage.
  • Tracing of both whole projects and individual components was executed through the integration of the client’s and Progistix’ systems.
The Results
By every measure, the Progistix Project Staging solution delivered exceptional business improvements:
  • Reduced cycle times from order receipt to delivery to job site.
  • Reduced transportation costs – fewer expedited shipments.
  • Eliminated pilferage of components on the job site prior to arrival of installation workforces.
  • Increased field workforce productivity.
  • Improved supply chain visibility.
