Challenges Facing Operations Directors


We know that the systems we develop and implement for our clients are only just the start, they don't run businesses, they enable our clients to run them. You have many responsibilities; you need to understand the entire business flow, the products, the customers, the operation and the technology across the entire business function.


We can help you improve your processes and take your operation's productivity and efficiency to the next level. Here are just a few of the challenges we can help you overcome:

How can I get better stock accuracy?


Operations are always under pressure from the rest of the business to improve accuracy of your stock position. However, it doesn't just involve implementing the latest scanning technology or advanced RFID capability to automate every movement through the supply chain, however that would help! Some of the simplest programs can achieve sustainable short term improvements.


Maginus are the lead on the Technology Advisory Board for the UK Warehousing Association (UKWA). We offer our experience of over 100 implementations of stock control systems to guide the UKWA membership through the application of tech solutions.



How can I compete with Amazon on Delivery?



Maginus customers in B2B wholesale and distribution have been offering next-day delivery services for decades and consider it normal practice. This has largely been achieved via thoughtful and aggressive implementation of technology. Amazon have now taken delivery services to the next level, challenging retailers, wholesalers and 3PL’s to respond accordingly.



This is a threat particularly felt by, but not restricted to, the SME, but they are also best equipped to meet the challenge. Small enough to collaborate and agile enough to implement new solutions quickly.



Whether you're a retailer, or operate in the B2B world - Amazon will be your greatest challenge. How do you compete with the online behemoth with seemingly bottomless financial pockets?



It's going to be three things - improved tech, intelligent data, and better customer service.


We can help with all three.

How can I better manage Product Returns to improve customer service?


Free returns are now the norm for online purchases. This has created a culture in the B2C sector of "try and return" (that is now becoming more widespread in the wholesale sector) and a headache for operations.


Maginus offers specialist functionality to help you manage the returns process. We refund quickly, assess the stock value, and place product back into the sales cycle as soon as possible.


This will help keep your customers happy and open to a re-sell and your inventory status accurate to minimise over stocking.
