How can Advisory Services from Open Sky Group help my operations?

Advisory Services focuses on meeting the challenges you face today, while also helping you prepare for operational success tomorrow.

If you work in the supply chain, you already know about the complexities that have created additional pressures – supply disruptions, transportation expenses, constrained packaging availability, a very tight labor pool, and the ever-increasing demands of consumers. The challenges across different supply chains may all be similar, but every operation is unique.

Working with us will help you focus on aligning your processes, your current technologies, and potential investments to optimize the material flow in your operation, with the end goal of reducing your costs and improving your service levels.

Open Sky Group’s Advisory Services can also be your representative in helping you wade through the sea of potential solutions on the market today. We can help you make the correct process changes and investments to take your operational performance to the next level.

How do you get started?

First, we’ll have a no-obligation chat to get to know each other a bit. If we feel we’re a mutually good fit, the next step is an assessment. This is our way to understand your business, processes, unique challenges and to deliver an improvement roadmap that will streamline your operations.

When you engage Advisory Services, we work with you to strategically justify investment opportunities. Whether that means developing financial models or adapting to changing market conditions, we can help you build a business case to achieve your goals.

In addition, Open Sky Group’s depth of talent and resources can provide program and project management as well as ongoing support for any technology that may be implemented.
