We do not     - assume a warehouse operates in ways that prevent costly mistakes that lose sales and customers, and maximize productivity 

                        - presume a company is effectively minimizing inventory stock-outs and excess, and profitably selling slow-moving stock

                        - sell ERP, MRP or warehouse management (WMS) systems or technologies (e.g., bar coding)

                        - assume that distributors/wholesalers have plans for successfully competing with Amazon Business, Alibaba and other alternate channels

                 - have ties to system or warehouse technology vendors -- we are always on the client's side; we avoid problem vendors/systems              

                 - assume that a WMS or other warehouse technology would prevent mistakes, increase productivity or be cost-justified 

For more than 40 years, our unbiased, objective services have saved time, money & aggravation. Using our in-depth industry experience and knowledge, we: 

         Reduce warehouse mistakes & costs, & increase productivity w/o new technology, often via low-cost, quick improvements  

        Develop strategic plans for surviving Amazon Business, Alibaba and other alternate channels of distribution   

         Reduce inventory stock-outs, short-ships & excess, and slow moving stock, without hurting customer service

         Determine the justification of ERP/MRP/WMS, cloud computing, a central warehouse, warehouse technologies

         Select the most cost-effective ERP/MRP/WMS, warehouse technology or cloud computing, while avoiding the pitfalls,

                    problems, overpaying and an unprotective contract

         Provide expert litigation support and witness testimony, and advice to investment  firms.
