Speaker: Karl Dawson

This is a great opportunity to visit Heron Foods Purpose Built Distribution centre in Hull. The event will be a presentation, followed by a tour.

Heron Food's story is one of success, growth and development. They are very proud of their history, their staff and their achievement of serving people with high quality, low priced groceries. The first Heron store opened in 1979 on Holderness Road in Hull and proved to be an immediate success with local people. Further Heron stores were opened in quick succession throughout Hull and the East Riding and then further afield in Lincolnshire and South and North Yorkshire.

In February 2003 the Company changed hands, but remained a family business and was acquired by the present management team. Heron Foods now trade from over 240 stores, employ over 3000 people and are constantly striving to expand and spread our message of quality and value throughout the country.

Heron Foods was ranked twelfth by turnover in The Grocer magazine’s survey of the top fifty independent grocery retailers (The Grocer magazine 13th March 2014) based on turnover in the year to 31st March 2014. In 2009 they moved away from our ageing cold store and warehouse operation in West Hull to a purpose built facility measuring 270,000 square feet at Melton in East Yorkshire, just to the West of Hull, which has been designed to enable the Company to continue with its ambitious growth plans.

Supply Chain is a globalised market and consequently the fastest growing department in business today. The focus is on connecting people worldwide through collaboration and digitalisation. Right from the start of the purchase order through to the final delivery, we need to ensure that we have ticked all the boxes, considered the risks, united the silos and managed the terms of procurement. Do we have the means of providing a complete cockpit view of all the participants in each of our global chains?

This event will showcase the key areas your business needs to focus on to:

• strengthen your supply chain

How and why supply chain leaders should champion customer centricity initiativesBOOK NOW
03/05/2017 09:15:00 - 03/05/2017 13:00:00

When: Wednesday 3rd May 2017, 09:00 (for 09:15) - 13:00 
Where:
 Mayfair Room, 5th Floor, The Helicon, 1 South Place, Moorgate, London EC2M 2RB

How customer centric is your supply chain?

The increasing sophistication of the customer is one of the mega-trends of recent years, with service becoming as much a competitive differentiator as cost. But many supply chains have failed to recognize this paradigm, remaining internally “process-centric” and with scant regard for the end customer. The reality is that maximizing “the right experience” for the customer requires product offerings and their supporting supply chains to be integrated and indistinguishable. This has already been recognized by those leading companies who have already transformed their supply chains into customer-centric supply chains, such as Cisco, Starbucks and NCR.

 

What is Supply Chain Journey Mapping?

 

Supply Chain journey mapping is a human-centered design methodology that allows you to look at your supply chain from your customers’ perspective, and is equally applicable whether you operate in a B2B or B2C environment. The objective is to deliver better customer experience to improve retention and profitability.

   

This interactive workshop will include:

• Hands-on experience of mapping customer journeys through the supply chain.

• Use of journey maps to diagnose customer experience issues and identify opportunities within the supply chain to become more customer-centric.

Designing supply chain experiences that meet your customer’s expectations and deliver business value

What participants will learn:

 

Powerful, practical tools for creating customer-centered Supply Chain strategies, and tips for introducing supply chain journey mapping into your organisation for immediate action.

By the end of the day you will have identified innovative ways to improve the customers’ experience by incorporating and combining the people, process and technological resources that can drive new attitudes and behaviours within the supply chain to deliver superior results.

Refreshments and a light buffet will be provided. 

Please note the delegate list for this event will be vetted by the host, Oracle, whose prerogative it is to accept or decline, without reason, a delegate’s attendance.
