enVista, a leading supply chain consulting and IT services firm, unveiled its Facility Design Build practice today at ProMat 2013, the premier material handling, logistics and supply chain event in the Americas. enVista has spent the last two years building a premier Facility Design Build services team. enVista has successfully completed projects for a dozen leading retailers and distributors, including: ECCO, Dansko, Horizon Hobby, and Pet Supplies Plus. The marriage of deep supply chain consulting and third party systems integration, combined with more than 20 years of design build and cost justified engineering experience, is a game changer for clients, enabling companies to partner with a single point of contact for program management, team process optimization, and facility engineering to build. The result is streamlined Facility Design Build projects that require fewer resources, faster time to beneficial use and a single partner accountable for project success.
enVista’s Facility Design Build services support the organization’s “Consult, Implement, Operate” (CIO) approach by creating a single point of responsibility from supply chain strategy to beneficial use. The design build business unit will deliver over eight large-scale projects in 2013 with forecasted revenue of $50M.
enVista President and CEO Jim Barnes said, “We took a different approach when we developed this business unit. We spent the last two years proving out the business model. It starts with exceptional talent that is focused on 100 percent client satisfaction. We are not a material handling equipment vendor who takes orders. Our goal is to implement solutions that create economic value for our clients. Unlike many material handling systems integrators, our livelihood is not dependent on how much conveyor we install. We will not build a solution that we did not design. We take accountability from concept, detailed engineering, installation and acceptance. Our design build capabilities complement the 150 supply chain and IT consultants that we have. We are truly driving value and reducing waste in our clients supply chains.”
enVista will deliver complimentary Design Build best practices at ProMat booth #3681 at 1:30 p.m. on Monday, January 21 and Tuesday, January 22. enVista will also demonstrate its leading Warehouse Control System (WCS) at 2:30 p.m. on those same dates and offer client facility photos and case studies in its booth.
Mike Kasperski, Managing Partner of Supply Chain Services at enVista said, “There are very few firms that can develop an IT application road map strategy for a retailer and then build a retail centric distribution center to support the strategy. The power in our solution offering is that we understand inventory optimization and product flow; therefore, we are truly optimizing supply chains from source to consumption.”

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...
