Mark begins the interview by going into further detail about the services the team at SupplyPoint provides to their loyal clientele and how the firm ensures that they are able to deliver their innovative solutions. “Through close working relationships with our distributors and end users, our products are continuously evolving to provide ever improving features and benefits. Our custom development and design skills, coupled with a unique knowledge of real-life inventory management requirements, enables us to produce products which consistently deliver diverse, tangible benefits to organisations of any size delivering customer value. The value is created by assisting customers in lowering their inventory costs, increasing their available capital, reducing product consumption by 25-40% and providing audit trail of items issued - to name but a few. “Ultimately, we enable users to access inventory 24/7 within their organisation, no matter where they are. Controlled inventory – controlled access.” Enabling the firm to provide these innovative, award-winning solutions, is the talented, inventive and passionate team which forms the foundation of SupplyPoint. When discussing the internal culture, Mark is keen to highlight the significant role the team play in the overall success of the firm. “Here at SupplyPoint, our employees are integral to the success of our business. Every individual brings their own unique talents, personality, skills and knowledge to our organisation. We value diversity in our business and that is evident from not only where we are based globally, but also in who we partner with and the industries we serve. E With the uncertainty of Brexit and what means for businesses in the UK and Europe, Mark takes time to reflect on some of SupplyPoint’s core strengths and how the firm will use these to their advantages – especially when faced with challenging situations which may occur. “Like many companies, we do not know how Brexit will affect our markets until political decisions have been made. We are confident that as one of our key strengths is our ‘global footprint with a local presence’, our broad global manufacturing and technical support expertise, will allow us to continue to service our customers with minimal disruption. From a technology point of view, as leaders in intelligent inventory, though there is always room to learn, grow and think ahead to what our customers need, as markets expand and change we are always at the forefront evaluating where we can innovate next. Inventory management is about keeping costs down, reducing waste, and having what is needed, when you need it - we know these are important topics for any successful organisation.” Looking ahead to what the future holds for the firm, the team at SupplyPoint will continue to deliver impeccable solutions and service to their clients, ensuring that they not only meet the requirements which have been set, but also surpass their expectations.
