Syncron's supply chain solutions now support 50% of the leading heavy equipment manufacturers - globally
Syncron continues to establish itself as the leading supply chain software supplier for producers of heavy equipment, with an impressive 7 of the world’s largest 14 manufacturers now running Syncron solutions to manage their global supply chains.
With Syncron’s clients now representing 50% of the leading heavy equipment manufacturers, the company is well positioned to build further on this success and establish a dominant market position globally.
The heavy equipment market, like many others, has seen a significant drop in demand over the past 12 months as a result of the slowing global economy. Global leaders in this sector are however taking advantage of this opportunity to invest in their supply chains in order to further strengthen their competitive positions.
Earlier this year Manitowoc, headquartered in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, USA selected Syncron’s solutions to support their corporate goals of industry leading customer satisfaction across their global service network, whilst reducing their capital tied up in inventory. Komatsu, the world’s second largest manufacturer of mining and construction equipment, headquartered in Tokyo, Japan also selected Syncron to drive improvements in customer service and supply chain productivity, by establishing a single global order management process. Both companies believe that establishing a single optimized global aftermarket supply chain, that quickly can adapt to changes in the market place, will provide them with an important competitive edge.
“Heavy equipment companies have to provide exceptional customer service, while improving productivity and reducing stock levels to stay competitive in the marketplace. Syncron has proved to effectively help global leaders to achieve these objectives” says Anders Grudén, CEO of Syncron. ”Syncron’s solutions are designed to integrate with existing ERP systems and with short implementation times allow our clients to streamline their global supply chain processes.”
Syncron’s heavy equipment client list includes Komatsu, Volvo, Sandvik, Atlas Copco, Manitowoc, Metso, JCB and HIAB. Through their partnership with Syncron these companies have been able to improve service levels and deliver process efficiencies on a global scale, whilst reducing inventory levels in both the finished goods and aftermarket supply chains.
