It seems so simple, but many large companies often lose sight of the simple concept of “focusing on your core business”. You’re in business for a reason, whether that means manufacturing a product or selling a service. Partnering with a company like JIT Services can become a major asset in making sure your company continues to do what it does best.
JIT Services would like to point to a short case study that perfectly exemplifies this type of scenario. A few years ago, an overseas supplier to a major US auto manufacturer approached JIT Services for help in providing a custom solution to a major concern that had been slowly manifesting itself within the company.
This particular supplier made a high-demand and high quality product, and quality was and never has been an issue they faced. However, meeting the scheduling and supply portion of just-in-time (JIT) delivery was becoming a major problem. The issue of meeting the delivery requirements from overseas had become so bad that the major automotive customer was threatening to end the business relationship unless their concerns were quickly addressed. Additionally, the constant expediting of freight to the United States was quickly becoming a large financial burden. Knowing that JIT Services had a reputation for finding solutions to these types of problems, they knew that they could trust them to help.
A year later, after entering into a partnership with JIT Services, not only did the supplier retain the business contract that was in jeopardy, but they were also awarded the prestigious “Diamond Supplier Award”. This honor is only given to the top-five suppliers out of thousands of other competing companies based on quality and on-time delivery results.
By partnering with JIT Services and allowing JIT to handle their scheduling and inventory and delivery issues, the supplier was able to become more efficient andprofitable, thus increasing their bottom line.
When you remember to focus on your core business of producing a high quality product and allowing JIT Services to take care of the rest, you can be assured that you’ll be at a great start to increasing your bottom line too.
