5 Reasons Why You Need UPPRO

Focus on core activities so that your business can grow.

High-value core corporate activities are usually located in production, R&D and customer service. Supply chain and inventory management, on the other hand, require a lot of attention that could be more valuably allocated to third parties. UPPRO allows its clients to eliminate important tactical tasks (ordering from and billing hundreds of vendors monthly, handling and monitoring inventory, etc.), thus allowing them to focus their resources on growing their business. Our clients use our services to:

  • Access trusted, best-in-class inventory management capabilities when sufficient internal resources are unavailable.
  • Improve company focus by freeing internal resources and eliminating tactical management tasks.
  • Integrate environmental and corporate sustainability into the supply chain—and measure the results.
  • Benefit from expert service management that enhances inventory status predictability and certainty, and thus increases peace of mind.
  • Simplify processes and reduce administration by committing to one annual work order and single monthly payments.
Manage your operation instead of being managed by constraints.

Supply chain management is often implemented via a reactive approach (”If it ain’t broken, why fix it”), which frequently leads to inefficient execution. UPPRO provides clients with the necessary management insight required to optimize their inventory levels throughout the entire supply chain, while assuming accountability for continuous key process improvement. With UPPRO Inventory Management, organizations can:

  • Reduce costly safety stock levels and effectively manage risks.
  • Decrease crisis-driven reactivity, from reduced part shortages to on-time parts delivery.
  • Create an integrated view of all internal ERP and external system data.
  • Align and measure metrics across the supply chain from disparate data sources.
Decrease your trapped working capital.

Converting inventory into positive cash flow is one of the key challenges that our clients face. An approved UPPRO Consigned Inventory agreement provides:

  • Substantial financial resources for actual ownership of stock, allowing our clients to minimize the inventory on their balance sheet.
  • Minimal or completely eliminated product obsolescence, achieved by closely tracking product use and acting swiftly on slow-moving items.
  • Storage, material handling, insurance and shrinkage payments that save up to 50% on annual carrying costs.
Optimize your reverse logistics process.

Reverse logistics can represent a significant chunk of supply chain cost, and it’s typically not very well managed. At UPPRO, we manage reverse logistics as an integral part of supply chain management to improve efficiency and reduce costs—even for very complex items. We are reverse logistics specialists, using the most advanced and efficient tools to get client deliveries consistently right—matching exactly the right products with the right places at the right time. UPPRO’s reverse logistics services provide:

  • Streamlining of reverse logistics processes with customized item numbering systems, to deliver products of all kinds right on time.
  • Visibility via advanced tools that can track and monitor items within shipments.
  • Proactive notifications that alert stakeholders of changes in reverse logistics inventory levels, allowing them to act quickly and prevent inventory shortages.
  • A reduction of overall transportation costs through optimized route planning.
Improve your suppliers’ performance.

Organizations are constantly challenged to boost performance and deliver top-of-the-line products. This is achieved by creating a continuous improvement in supplier performance. UPPRO Supplier Management provides:

  • Early notifications regarding exceptions or systematic deviations, which help address issues prior to downtime, incur costs, or impacted service levels.
  • Qualitative and quantitative supplier data analysis, which generates risk mitigation insights and reduces disruption costs.
  • A consolidation of all suppliers, their performance details and inspection results. This consolidation creates a holistic view of supplier activities and helps contrast their performance with alternative suppliers.
  • Supplier monitoring according to specific risk profiles, which helps reduce shortage occurrence.
  • Prompt supplier payment based on individual SLA performance.
