Yellowstar customer event 2019

BBQing is just like logistics IT

We recently organized the ultimate barbecue workshop for our customers at Smokey Goodness in Delft. A perfect moment to connect people, learn from each other's experiences, and subsequently improve and accelerate the supply chain.

What does logistics IT and BBQ have in common?

  • Everyone talks about it, everyone thinks his neighbor is doing fine, but nobody is really doing well. BBQ and IT solutions must lead to convenience and enjoyment.
  • ‘First time right’ means no burned burgers or returned steaks. Deliveries must be made on time to prevent food not being served at the same time and in the wrong order.
  • The BBQ also has a KPI-dashboard. For measuring the temperature, because measuring = knowing and guessing = missing.
  • And then of course there is supply chain collaboration. A beer to start with, firing up the BBQ, setting the tables and finally the dishwashing area. Just like in logistics, if things don't work out, everyone eats burnt burgers, also has to help out in the kitchen and eventually miss the last bus home.

We live far too short and there is so much to discover. Therefore, we must not allow our valuable time to evaporate due to unnecessary mistakes and costs, caused by misunderstandings. With also irritations as a result. Just like in IT, there are many improvements to discover with the BBQ. The reward is ultimate: convenience, enjoyment and finally time for each other!

Plan yourself a smile!

Would you refer to your company as ‘standard’? Surely not, right?  Then why do companies settle for a standard product for their IT? Opting for a standard IT product holds many limitations. Customisation on the other hand combines the best of both worlds: a standard basis with a demand-oriented IT solution.
