Let AVATA Take Your Business Pulse

Stethoscope Heart Shape

Given that supply chain and ERP solutions are the backbone of many businesses, naturally you want to ensure that your organization realizes the highest value from them – both now and in the future. Over time, organizations are faced with seemingly endless sources of change that include customer demands, new products, new competition, new shareholder objectives, organizational restructuring, mergers/acquisitions, new legislation, etc.  As these changes accumulate, your applications and business processes configured according to past requirements—may no longer be aligned to your current and future needs.

Understanding your business needs and knowing which problems to address first is the most critical step to improving your supply chain performance.  An AVATA Health Check includes an in-depth review of the existing application footprints, customizations, infrastructure and business processes. At the conclusion of this advisory service, we provide you with detailed support for prioritizing efforts based on value of the recommendation, the complexity of the solution, and cost to correct.

While the solutions can range from simple process changes to more complex software implementations or better utilization of your existing software, our assessments will identify which opportunities have the largest and quickest payback.  Our recommended strategy includes near-term steps to improve what you currently have with a longer roadmap for growth.
