We are very pleased with the output of the HSCS team, Throughout the eight month project, we felt confident in their approach and depth of knowledge. Communication is key for complex projects like this. It was important to us that our customers and patients were not disrupted and HSCS managed to deliver a seamless transition to the new DC.

Finance and Operations Director, CliniSupplies

I hired a HSCS consultant to work with me as a project manager as we took back the management of an outsourced warehouse. Alex integrated himself seamlessly into our organisation, creating a detailed cross functional project plan that spanned systems, process, HR, operational design, testing and integration and managed the cut-over plan. His calming influence and ability to get things done, enabled the project to be delivered on-time, with a successful go-live. My only criticism is I couldn’t hire Alex as part of the on-going team!

Through our time at Scott’s & Co, we held full operational responsibility for carriage, in-house warehousing, Company H&S and Facilities.

While under the constraints of a limited capital budget, through a continuous improvement initiative we delivered cost-effective solutions and transformed the internal warehouse operations (physical, processes, people & systems) from labour intensive manual paper based processes to up to date real time, system led processes.  The result was improved stock accuracy, 1st time order fulfilment and reduced lead times. In addition we improved visibility on order progress and delivered significant savings in warehousing cost.

A formal ITT process delivered savings in carriage costs and a new DSV collection model introduced which delivered significant improvements in the customer journey – taking a 14 day customer promise down to 3-5 days.
