Improving AT&T's mobile device supply chain with efficient VAR logistics
In the competitive mobile telecommunications industry, AT&T needed to ensure that its retail stores were receiving a steady, timely stream of the latest smartphone devices.
AT&T selected Group O in 2010 to handle a key part of its mobile device supply chain. Group O purchases devices from OEMs including Samsung, BlackBerry, Nokia, LG, HTC, Sony, Motorola and others — and then inspects, inventories and delivers the phones to AT&T retail locations within a rolling 10-day window.
In the two-year period just ended, Group O purchased and handled more than 15 million mobile devices — representing billions of dollars in inventory. And matching the large numbers, quality was also kept extremely high, with Group O operating at a 6.77 Sigma level.
Beyond the numbers, Group O provides a one-stop solution for AT&T to on-board OEMs into its supply chain, from logistics, quality, legal and financial perspectives. This helps generate speed-to-market for AT&T and ensures that it can respond rapidly to consumer demand. For its smartphones, AT&T has a smart solution to match.
