If you’ve been tasked with bringing your B2B wholesale distribution operations (WDO) into the future—or even the present—with things like advanced analytics, business intelligence, and
robotic process automation—you’ve realized that you’ll hit a big fat wall unless you standardize first.
Everything. Processes. Activities. Workflows. Data. Customer experience. That’s because competitive best practice—not to mention all of today’s newest technology—depends on it, requires it, before you can get past Square One.
Most knowledge workers in B2B wholesale distribution believe their work is already standardized. But it’s not—not nearly enough.
Almost 90 percent of wholesale distribution work activities are based on “standards” that are anything but. Things like rules of thumb, workarounds, and tribal knowledge.
Without rigorous “reference-grade” operations and measurement, individual knowledge-worker productivity can vary by 100 percent to 700 percent— for the exact same activities.
Think of what that’s doing to your bottom line.
For more than 25 years, The Lab has helped leaders from the Fortune 500 on down to standardize their knowledge-work operations, wringing out new efficiencies, turbocharging productivity, uncovering newfound capacity, and exploiting opportunities for advanced analytics and robotic process automation (RPA).
We’ve even standardized our process of standardization—and patented it. We boast the world’s largest repository of benchmarks, best practices, management dashboards, and ready-to-roll RPA templates. So we can, and do, make it happen fast.
Part of The Lab’s success stems from our unique business model: We guarantee the ROI of our approach.
Our projects pay for themselves in six months.
Simple as that.
We document every activity—using our own bots. We find every variance.
If it’s wasteful, it goes away. If it’s simple and repetitive, it gets earmarked for automation.
You know that robotic process automation, or RPA, can turbocharge wholesale distribution operations. You may have been told you need a costly center of excellence, millions of dollars, and a year or two—just to get your feet wet.
With The Lab’s standardization services on your side, you can have your first bots up and running in just four weeks.
With any platform you choose, because we’re tech-agnostic.
The Lab makes standardization fast, easy, and guaranteed to be 100-percent self-funding.
