Streamlining operations to stay ahead of the curve is a strenuous task for enterprises, and oftentimes, they fail to tap the full potential of existing assets. To put this into perspective, imagine a company with approximately 80 to 100 million dollars in revenue, who faced serious issues in their warehouse operations. Their unorganized internal processes impeded them from utilizing their assets to the fullest. Amidst having 5-7 employees working overtime on a daily basis, the company found themselves short of equipment, leading to them disbursing more on their business operations. In this scenario, the company would benefit from an assist, one that can restructure their entire process flow, help them become more efficient and effective, and improve their potential for success— precisely what the Pennsylvania-based, premiere strategic business management firm Applied Logistics Integration (ALI) Consulting offered.
“We were able to streamline internal operations, enabling the warehouse to complete all requirements within 6 hours, with the same equipment and fewer staff,” says David Mahalak, CEO of ALI Consulting. The firm thus helped their client achieve financial savings and organized their tasks to help employees execute their job responsibilities more effectively.
With significant expertise in multiple analytical fields, the firm gains breadth and depth of knowledge to efficiently and effectively complete projects. They provide holistic insights to their customers to make informed and educated decisions. The company achieves this through a systematic procedure, which is dubbed as a start-to-finish process by Mahalak.

This increased employee and equipment utilization, and enabled the customer to consolidate warehouses with an estimated yearly savings of 100,000 - 150,000 dollars.
