Supply Chain and Operations Thought Leadership

  • IT: Can your IT infrastructure support you through COVID-19 disruption?

    A weak IT infrastructure can hinder your COVID-19 crisis navigation. Your technology should be robust enough to support remote work when needed, smart enough to support your decision-making, and secure enough to protect you from cybercrime. You’ll also need the right team to keep your technology running smoothly. Take our assessment to evaluate your IT strength and find out where you need to devote additional resources.

    A critical factor in successful crisis navigation is minimal disruption to your customer service. Are you still meeting your commitments? If so, how long can you keep that going? Does your staff know how to answer COVID-19-related business questions? How are you positioned compared to the competition? Take the assessment to gauge your ability to continue successful operations amid the disruption.

We speak your language

Our clients frequently tell us they appreciate our human side. We won’t hesitate to roll up our sleeves and entrench ourselves in your organization. And we won’t talk over you. At Plante Moran, we partner with you to understand your unique issues and provide pragmatic, yet sustainable, solutions to solve increasingly difficult day-to-day challenges and complex issues. We combine this approach with upfront planning and regular communications to avoid any unwanted surprises.

This approach is the cornerstone of our supply chain and operations team. Kim Doyle, supply chain and operations practice leader, explains, “Our team members don’t use ‘consultant speak.’ There are no barriers to connecting with our clients on a practical level, which allows us to quickly identify the root of their problems and develop a solution for a dynamic supply chain that positions them for success.”

Our clients say

As our company was undergoing significant transformation, our team was challenged to manage change and balance work load. We were able to bring Plante Moran in to work side-by-side with us. They operated as part of OUR team and not as outside consultants. I was impressed with the level of engagement and how they were able to learn about our people and processes. This allowed us to make smart decisions regarding how and where to improve - and it created a better level of accountability regarding the desired improvements and outcomes. The PM team also created trust and credibility within the project team, which enhanced their effectiveness. I would strongly recommend Plante Moran and will partner with them in the future.
