Energy / Utility / Alternative Energy

The supply chain continues to be a focus for Energy executives because of its inherent size, investment commitment and immediate impact to the business. Its value and complexity is rising due to globalization, for which by definition - supply chain means global suppliers, global customers and global competitors. More capabilities are externalized, as companies look to become asset light, lower direct costs and focus on the core competencies.  The growing number of trading partners creates a need for process integration and collaboration with extended supply chain partners. Best- in-Class Energy companies are reducing supply chain complexity by integrating customer and supplier processes and creating cross-functional coordination with procurement, finance and IT.

For today’s Energy companies, increasing the bottom line while optimizing efficiency poses an incredible difficult challenge, especially in our current economic crisis. This need, coupled with competition in a global environment, puts manufacturers and service providers in a tight spot.  New methods of processing energy and delivery of services have evolved and global sourcing has become a crucial element for survival. The time for execution of best practices at the lowest total operating cost possible is now.

As climate change and renewable-energy policies level the playing field in the energy industry alternative-energy companies are racing to assure investors, policymakers and the public that they can scale to meet the needs of energy-starved consumers. During the last few years, a clutch of clean energy projects have emerged on a scale never seen before. ODScommerce has developed Knowledge Process Outsourcing Solutions and Services (KPO) for the nuclear, fossil, thermal, hydro power technologies and new energy sources that provider wind, solar, geo thermal, bio fuel, and hydrogen cell options. Although this is very exciting, there are a number of challenges facing the small/medium energy businesses today:
