How it works?

We combine our vast stock range and processing operations with the power of our industry-leading IT platform.

Before we implement any supply package, we first need to evaluate and clearly understand how your current business operates. The fact that our service is fully customised ensures that whatever processes are put into place will dramatically improve your business and exceed your expectations.

The Process

We take you through the following steps:

  • Initial Dialogue
  • Site Visit
  • Presentation
  • Implementation
First Discussions

During an initial fact-finding call, we will discuss your current setup, problems and expectations of how you wish to improve your supply chain processes.

Visiting you

A team member will meet with you at your premises to gain an in-depth understanding of your business processes. We will explain what is possible and its impact on your business. Further meetings may be required to evaluate your planning, procurement and engineering sections if needed.

Full disclosure

We will present our findings to you, outlining the cost savings and demonstrating how a bespoke supply chain solution with Thames can significantly benefit your business. Once cost targets are agreed upon, we will formalise a plan to implement the changes.

Going 'live'

We will implement the solution(s) without any impact on your engineering or fabrication processes. We allocate a member of our team to be accountable and to support the plan, which will be regularly audited to ensure that savings targets are being met and your objectives are being fulfilled.
