Novigo: IT-Driven SupplyChain Insights

Globalization has caused an explosion of enterprise services and products in the marketplace today, and by leveraging IT, companies have been able to streamline and optimize their operations to a large extent. However, when building an IT infrastructure, CIOs need to ensure that the technology they put into play is compatible with their business strategies on the long run. This is where Novigo steps in as a competent leader in supply chain execution and consulting services. “With higher expectations from customers for customization, CIOs must display a strong ability to harmonize, standardize, and at the same time, deliver high performance, decentralized, and transparent services,” says Dr. Osman Bayraktar, MP, Global Head of Enterprise Transformation, Novigo.

The firm leverages Transportation Management (SAP TM) and other solutions like, Extended Warehouse Management (SAP EWM), Event Management (SAP EM), Integrated Business Planning (SAP IBP) and SAP HANA to harmonize business operations and streamline the client’s supply chain network operations. “After gaining a thorough understanding of a client’s business operations, we offer change and project management services to identify and manage relevant components for the overall project success,” says Bayraktar. Using a benefits-driven approach, Novigo initiates the transformation process for their customers and creates a forum to discuss and identify the roadmap for the client’s company.

The process and innovation roadmap provides an educated and cost-effective foundation for the customer to make informed decisions and investments. The approach defines project benefits that the client wants and uses it as a catalyst for the changes being undertaken. “Involving the relevant stakeholders and identifying the client’s business benefits that justify the investment is essential for the overall success of the transformation and implementation,” says Bayraktar.

Novigo’s service offerings are backed by the in-depth expertise that the company has honed over the years. “Our technological know-how allows us to adjust or enhance solutions as and when required to suit our customer’s IT infrastructure and business needs” adds Bernd Mosbrucker, MP, Global SCM Innovation, Novigo.

Novigo’s supply chain consultancy service has been availed by many clients, from regionally-oriented mid-size companies to globally operating multi-divisional enterprises. One such client is a global provider of consumer products that required the implementation of a shared-service concept for its logistics planning and execution. The project involved overcoming a number of business transformation challenges due to the alteration of employee and department roles, processes, and IT infrastructure. “By leveraging our services, the customer is currently operating logistics out of Mexico and combining services from multiple countries to offer its products in the U.S. successfully,” says Mosbrucker.

Novigo credits the satisfaction of its numerous clients to the solutions and technical expertise that the firm offers. In addition, Novigo invests heavily in training and employee development programs through its Novigo Academy. “The foundation of Novigo is based on the same benefit-driven implementation approach that we offer to our clients,” says Mosbrucker, and adds “our passion is dedicated to the success of our customers.”

“Transportation is global, so is Novigo” is one of Novigo’s slogans which reflect the company’s global set up. Novigo has teams in seven locations around the globe. With two major projects being carried out in Latin America, the firm is further planning to strengthen its support for its clients in this region. On the technology front, Novigo will continue to build around SAP’s solution offerings to leverage its business analytics and big data capabilities. “We aim to be a thought leader in IT-driven supplychain consulting services by combining our business consulting services with SAP supply chain practice and Novigo Academy,” concludes Bayraktar.
