ALOM’s program management ensures an optimized and seamless global material flow. Going from planning and optimization through execution, ALOM’s program managers work in an iterative process with clients, clients’ customers and suppliers worldwide.

Online Order Management
Advanced Web design capabilities, seamless order flow and full-service management of data, funds, reporting and products are some of the key ingredients that have made ALOM’s online portal design and execution popular with its Fortune100 clients.
Procurement and Vendor Managed Inventory
ALOM works in a collaborative effort based on forecasts to optimize the supply chain, using clients’ preselected suppliers or through ALOM’s own highly qualified vendors. Getting the right materials in on time, in the right location and keeping track of them is a necessity. In order to achieve this, ALOM works with high quality vendors, specifies the product and other requirements carefully, and keeps track of and expedites deliveries.
ALOM works with its clients to ensure that ALOM holds the right amount of components and finished goods available to meet their customers’ requirements, without building up unnecessary and costly overstock.
Using a demand-driven concept, ALOM’s contract assembly produces millions of units each month to exacting standards, and most work orders are completed within 24 hours— independent of the global location. To accommodate this volume and turnaround while maintaining control and uncompromising quality levels, ALOM relies on stringent quality practices and strong systems.
