Anyone can offer services. Fortna delivers results. Just ask our clients:
Fortna reviewed the test cases for a large multimedia retailer and revised them to meet all business requirements and support the end user testing. Fortna was also responsible for implementing a more effective training program, improving standard operational procedures and exception handling, executing segregated operational readiness testing and creating a detailed lessons learned report for subsequent implementations of the warehouse management system at the company’s three additional distribution centers.
Fortna helped a department store retail chain design and implement a complete supply chain transformation, consolidating four distribution centers into two retrofitted sites. As a result, transit time from the DC to stores decreased by 30%, labor cost per unit improved by 27%, occupancy cost was reduced, capital utilization improved and inbound freight expenses were reduced 17%.
The greatest risk and highest cost associated with systems implementation is often in the area of support after the project is complete. This is caused by a failure to invest in and develop super-users that can serve as internal support for the project after the go-live. Fortna’s project management considers not only the readiness of the systems, but also the people and processes needed to ensure long-term success.
