End-to-end Solutions.

ArchPoint operates a complex, global supply chain to bring a variety of consumer packaged goods to market in North America.  We blend the capabilities and learnings from our own operations with research- and analytics-based consulting approaches to solve our clients’ supply chain challenges.

Purchasing

Solving your challenges.

ArchPoint’s proven best-in-class purchasing solutions build clients’ competencies to impact their top and bottom line through improved cost of goods and competitive positioning in the marketplace. Our procurement team has over 30 years of experience working for Fortune 500 companies and applies our deep expertise in activity based costing, menu pricing, category management principles and inventory optimization methods to help solve our clients’ procurement challenges.

Procurement Excellence

ArchPoint assesses our clients’ purchasing capabilities – people, process, organization, systems and culture – against best-in-class practices and offers pragmatic, relevant and impactful solutions.

Vendor Segmentation

Not all vendors should be managed the same way.  ArchPoint takes clients through a thorough supplier segmentation process to deliver more focus, increased sales and margins and better time management.

Negotiation Skills & Training

Don’t leave money on the table.  ArchPoint employs a 10-step process that improves our clients’ cost of goods, increases sales and gives our clients’ buyers or sales teams new insights into the supplier community.

Pricing Strategy

ArchPoint uses a method of price optimization that gives our clients the tools to know when a price should be increased or lowered based on market factors and competitive threats. The methodology increases margins and our clients’ competitive position in the marketplace.

Assessment & Outsourcing Solutions

Cut waste, optimize strengths.

ArchPoint operates our own global supply chain, and knows where to reduce costs and increase efficiencies.  We take a process approach by examining how work is performed and resources are used.  We then measure our findings against leading practices that we ourselves execute. The gaps we identify tell us where the biggest improvement opportunities exist. However, we’re not done until we customize solutions for our client’s unique business model and provide actionable, relevant and prioritized recommendations.

Network Optimization & Freight Assessment

Most manufacturers are spending way more than necessary to move product.  ArchPoint evaluates our clients’ supply chain model, cost structure, agreements, policies and procedures to find more efficient and effective ways to process, ship, store and distribute products.

Order To Cash (O2C) Technology

As operators, ArchPoint invests in O2C technology, personnel and infrastructure so our clients don’t have to.  Our turnkey services include customer service with billing, invoicing, credit and deductions management, order fulfillment, collections and cash application.

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Outsourcing

Our clients leverage our resources, ERP technology and networks to connect to practically every customer in the U.S. at a fraction of the cost required to build their own EDI infrastructure.

Warehouse & Fulfillment Outsourcing

Warehouse and fulfillment costs can easily get out of control and drain your profits.  ArchPoint manages global shipments every hour of every day from door to door.  This first-hand experience keeps us current and avoids surprises and unnecessary expenses. Through our warehouse facilities in Central Texas, ArchPoint provides distribution, freight management and negotiation and logistics services at a scale and efficiency that can lower our clients’ costs.

We’re students of supply chain best practices and implement them to make our own supply chain capabilities more efficient and effective. We adapt best practices to work for us and help clients around the globe do the same.
