Takt Powered nGROUP’s Best Peak Season Ever
To ensure they can support their customers during challenging times, nGROUP needs to stay in control of their operation and take action at a moment’s notice. Takt’s operations platform provides logistics teams with unparalleled insight into what’s happening in real time, tools to engage and empower operators, and the ability to identify and eliminate waste within a facility.
INCREASE IN UPH
DELIVERED TARGET VOLUME
nGROUP supports North America’s largest retail, manufacturing, and distribution teams, helping them optimize supply chain cost & performance. Typically, peak season presents the most significant challenge: meeting customer demand while maintaining operational efficiency. In 2021, COVID compounded this challenge by significantly increasing customer purchasing while simultaneously reducing the labor force to the lowest participation rate in recent history.
To optimize a global network spanning numerous facilities, supporting clients including Macy’s and CarParts.com, nGROUP needed the ability to keep a finger on the pulse of their team’s performance, quickly identify opportunities for improvement, and provide their teams with the insights necessary to take immediate action.
