Supply Chain Management and Procurement

WR-ICON offers guidance to all levels of management to maximize efficiencies in sourcing, supply chain and procurement. The mantra of both “Doing the Right Things” and “Doing Things Right” is applied from the micro to the macro level.

When a global company addresses the question of sourcing finished goods it will typically examine all internal and external assets available to it across the different regions that it operates in. WR-ICON can support a company in this exercise by providing a blue print backed by models to determine the best global supply strategy.

Global organizations face the challenge of continuously improving their supply chain operations.

WR-ICON can help a company to shape both the right strategy and oversee the detailed mechanics of optimizing day-to-day business execution at the lowest possible cost.
