Philips Electronics Optimizes Service Parts Inventory with Servigistics Solution

— August 02, 2007

Philips Consumer Electronics has streamlined its service parts inventory system with a strategic service management solution from Servigistics. Philips tapped Servigistics software to manage inventory, reduce the chances of circulating obsolete parts and prevent the overstocking of parts with short life spans.

Philips implemented the solution in Region APMEA (Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa).

“We required a solution that not only managed inventory on a tactical level, but also provided us with the foundation to deliver Service as a strategic initiative,” said Gerard van Dobben, Senior VP Global Customer Service. “Servigistics was chosen for its experience in global implementations and leadership in the field of service management.”

Servigistics partnered with specialist consultancy Barkawi Management Consultants to provide project planning and business expertise for the implementation in Shanghai.

“Maintaining its position as an industry leader requires Philips CE to consistently meet the demands of an increasingly disparate global customer base," said Kevin Tingey, Servigistics' General Manager, European (EMEA). " The Servigistics solution will enable Philips Consumer Electronics to efficiently achieve its goals and drive profitability from its service levels.”
