Flybe

Flybe and ERA shortlisted at the Supply Chain Excellence Awards 2015

We’re feeling quietly pleased with ourselves. Together with our client Flybe, ERA is shortlisted for the ‘Sourcing & Procurement’ category at the European Supply Chain Awards.

The awards themselves are designed to recognise projects which directly improve the supply chain. And there’s no doubt our project does just that.

ERA’s Client Partner Ken Rogers worked with Procurement Director Richard Young at Flybe.

Together, they were able to achieve really significant annual savings, far in excess of initial forecasts. This, whilst reducing average international supply chain delivery times by five days and reducing Aircraft-on-the-Ground parts movement by almost a third.

It was a hugely complicated but hugely satisfactory project with both significant financial benefits and tangible process improvements for Flybe. Percentage savings were well into double digits and compliance improved both internally and externally.

According to Ken Rogers “It’s great when our clients truly engage with us, as Richard and his Flybe team have done. We know we can make significant contributions to our clients when they are open with us and this project is a great testament to that.”

Richard Young, Procurement Director at Flybe said “Ken and his team have stood firm in the face of a huge undertaking. This was a large and significant project for us and the contribution made by ERA cannot simply be measured in pounds and pence. Whilst they delivered for us financially, their contribution to re-engineering our processes and procedures is what will remain with us for the long term.”

It almost sounds too good to be true, but at ERA, it’s what we do for our clients every day.

“Ken and his team have stood firm in the face of a huge undertaking. This was a large and significant project for us and the contribution made by ERA cannot simply be measured in pounds and pence. Whilst they delivered for us financially, their contribution to re-engineering our processes and procedures is what will remain with us for the long term.”
