The EPG (Ehrhardt + Partner Group) is expanding its EPG | CONSULTING range of services, launching a web solution on the market in the form of the Consulting Suite, which allows companies to optimize their logistics themselves easily and quickly. Based on the “Consulting-as-a-Service” concept, the consultants from EPG | CONSULTING supply a powerful kit for companies that want to continuously implement optimization strategies within their logistics or warehouse structures – from anywhere and at any time – in intuitive web application. The kit gives logistics professionals access to a variety of apps as required, such as for bin location and inventory optimization, or to analyze and select the optimal warehouse location. The Consulting Suite is regularly extended with new apps, which are then directly available to the user. This puts logistics professionals in a position to respond to evolving circumstances on their own without triggering an often time-consuming and costly project at an external consulting company.
With its Consulting Suite, EPG is responding to the demand for a digital solution for logistics consulting. Digitalization in the consulting sector is not nearly as advanced as it is in the field of logistics itself. To analyze and evaluate their data, many consultancies work on the basis of outdated spreadsheet programs. In the long run, however, digital solutions are necessary to the effort to consistently network all processes in the logistics supply chain.
Economical and sustainable
Unlike a one-time consulting service, the Consulting Suite provides customers long-term benefits – and hence long-term cost savings as well. Because they can continuously and independently analyze their existing logistics and warehouse structure, users also save time in project implementation. It is easy to use: Following individual login, customers select the appropriate app in the interface. Data are entered either directly via an interface connection or via an upload function. Once the data have been read in, various parameters can be set based on the requirements involved, and the analysis is launched with a click of the mouse. The results are then displayed immediately, saved and made available as a download report. Following analysis, the Consulting Suite provides concrete recommendations for action that the user can implement immediately. This is how data are turned into decisions.
Consultant on demand
In addition to the analytical tools, the Consulting Suite is supplemented by extensive online tutorials on the use of the individual applications. If required, customers can always call on the expertise of EPG and take advantage of personal consulting. Further potential for future projects can also be discussed by using the app. With the Consulting Suite, EPG creates a smart and intuitive tool that companies can access regardless of location. This is another decisive advantage, particularly against the backdrop of internationalization and global branches.
