Keeping your supply chain streamlined and adaptable
The unpredictability of today’s consumer demands is very challenging for high-tech and consumer electronics manufacturers, requiring supply chains to remain streamlined and adaptable. An unpredictability demonstrated by the overlap of technology and fashion in the rise of wearable technology. In order to service the high fluctuations in demand, companies need to secure competitive advantages by pursuing smart strategies surrounding inventory management.
At Arvato, an effective strategy has been in creating inventory that is country and language-specific under a process we coined as “Countrymization”. Although products from the high-tech and consumer electronics sector are designed for a number of markets, country or country group variations differ in terms of languages on the package and in the instruction manual, legal information (e.g. Gruner Punkt, TUV, CE label), connector cables, frequencies, and software version to name a few.
Countrymization refers to a supply chain designed to manage inventory in a neutral state, applying country-specific product characteristics later. Using this approach, the inventory is postponed until an order is generated. The client maximizes on all inventories available and avoids the cost of obsolescence.
