Global Supply Chain Optimization During M&A

What if... we could facilitate a merger and acquisition while refurbishing the global supply chain?

Our client is a leading satellite television provider. It provides pre-paid mobile services to more than nine million customers.

Centralizing Workflows During a Merger and Acquisition

Our client acquired a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), and needed to centralize its sourcing culture and update the source-to-pay data interfaces for more than nine million pre-paid subscribers with the new acquisition and a third-party vendor.

The company asked our management consulting experts to facilitate sourcing, contract, and vendor optimization across the entire organization while managing the global supply chain.

Increasing Efficiency With a New Global Supply Chain and Automation System

Our management consulting team defined, stood up, and managed a new global supply chain to service our client’s wireless business while also automating source-to-pay.

We enhanced the centralized category management, sourcing, contract management, analytics/research, and procurement processes under the new global supply chain. The system increases source-to-pay efficiency with automation and limited human intervention.

We also built out pre- and post-close integration plans and operation playbooks for the current billion-dollar acquisition.

Results

Focused on Client-Driven Relationships

As part of the post-merger source-to-pay integration process, we helped our client shift third-party relationships from vendor-driven to client-driven to drive increased customer satisfaction.

The improved supply chain allowed our client to process more than $1 billion in purchase orders in 30 days. A strategic roadmap centralized process workflows to increase efficiencies.

Our management consulting team established our client as a best-in-class source-to-pay organization, which is critical to success in the highly competitive mobile communications industry.
