Woodside Quality: Untying the Complex Knots of Supply Chain Management

Rip Stauffer, CEO
In recent years, the rise of companies like Amazon has revolutionized supply chains. Products being "always available" and same-day delivery are now considered the norm. However, various geopolitical and economic factors— along with the effects of the pandemic—are putting global supply chains under unprecedented pressure, which is likely to plague many industries for the foreseeable future. It is thus more necessary than ever for businesses to develop and execute a robust supply chain strategy to stay clear of any operational disruption. Organizations also need to coordinate with every participant in the supply chain by aligning them through effective strategy and standardizing the infrastructure. Helping businesses simplify the task of supply chain management with its intuitive consultative approach is Woodside Quality.

“At the core, we help businesses collect and analyze better data to make truly sound business decisions and solve their supply chain woes”

The company leverages its experience in service, healthcare, manufacturing, defense, finance, information technology, and product development to assist its clients in standardizing and aligning their supply chain with business objectives. Woodside Quality's subject matter experts understand that no two client organizations are alike and thus follow and prescribe the best practices that can streamline different supply chains. The company's seasoned team works with clients, from the loading dock to the end-user, identifying their needs before designing a supply chain management process optimized for their organization-specific requirements.

"At the core, we help businesses collect and analyze better data to make truly sound business decisions and solve their supply chain woes," states Rip Stauffer, CEO of Woodside Quality. The company starts every customer engagement with a strategic assessment of its clients' current strategy.
If their existing strategy is sound, Woodside Quality evaluates the execution of that strategy and monitors any roadblock in meeting clients' strategic objectives. Woodside Quality then performs a gap analysis to identify the weaknesses and potential opportunities for improvement. Once the company obtains a complete picture of its clients' supply chains, it implements a suite of solutions geared toward capitalizing on customers' unique opportunities.

The benefits of Woodside Quality's innovative supply chain management offerings can best be highlighted through a recent success story where the company assisted a manufacturer with four different suppliers in their supply chain to drive timely acquisition and delivery of products. One of the client's suppliers allegedly failed to supply the requested item, leading to financial and reputational loss. After its in-depth assessment, Woodside Quality recognized that the issue stems from non-standardized order placement practices. Armed with this insight, the company helped the manufacturer centralize their ordering workflow by giving them one fixed point of contact for order placement and a prioritization routine to ensure the efficient production and delivery of the most important orders. This entire engagement helped the manufacturer prevent similar yet rare occurrences of such incidents with other suppliers.

Moving ahead with many similar client successes under its hood, Woodside Quality is now poised to expand its service offering and become a leading entity in the supply chain management side of business operations. In the coming months, Woodside Quality plans to work more closely with government entities to better support them in optimizing their supply chain.
