Jeff Metersky, GAINS’ VP of Solution Strategy, explores how better supply chain decisions are moving AmerCareRoyal forward

As a leader in supply chain design and planning, GAINS focuses on putting its customers first and moving them forward faster. 

Jeff Metersky, the VP of Solution Strategy at GAINS, guides and directs the overall strategy of the GAINS supply chain solution. 

Supply chain volatility shifts priorities

With decades of experience providing supply chain design solutions and services, Metersky knows that traditional supply chain design and planning strategies no longer fit volatile business environments. They lack the flexibility to plan for disruptions and continuously optimise inventory. 

“Supply chains are no longer predictable and stable. They have become fragile and exposed due to increased variability and the rise in global disruptions,” Metersky says. “Businesses can no longer rely on the same techniques because our environment has changed – the focus cannot be on cost alone. Today’s decisions need to balance the trade-off between cost and service to mitigate risk and drive performance.”

“Using GAINS’ solutions, companies will be able to navigate uncertainty in their supply chains, enabling much greater adoption of designs instead of making them academic exercises. Designs will become more pragmatic so that companies can fully understand their impact and increase the likelihood of adoption.”

Partnering with AmerCareRoyal to enhance supply chain decision making

GAINS has been on a multi-year journey with AmerCareRoyal (ACR) to automate and transform its operations. Consequently, ACR has grown rapidly – doubling in size – as they continue to acquire new businesses. 

“Due to their partnership with GAINS, ACR has achieved rapid results, optimised inventory across their network, managed volatility, and become more resilient by being open to continuous improvement and looking for new ways to improve performance,” Metersky inputs. “This strategy achieves their desired outcomes and provides a scalable foundation on which they can embrace volatility and serve their customers well.
