General machine repairs


Potential Cost Saving




The Issue

A leading electrical engineering company were losing precious time having to wait for items to be ordered and delivered, as a consequence, the company held excessive stocks of components in readiness for any unplanned downtime.


The solution

Business Development Manager, Craig Tivey worked with the engineers to introduce a full consignment stock for the company. This gave engineers instant access to machine critical components, resulting in reduced inventory costs for the company and increased machine uptime. The consignment stock is fully managed by ACORN, with items only being invoiced at time of use. These time and money saving initiatives have saved the company an estimated £23,060.
