Q8 International Diesel Services (IDS)

01Context

Despite its strong market position, International Diesel Services (IDS) was facing declining profits and unit margins were under pressure. Hence they needed to boost sales while minimizing operating costs, starting with their Customer Service, Telemarketing and Network Operations teams.

02Approach

Nova Reperta performed a 5-day quick diagnostic to assess their performance and way of working, as well as to identify potential improvement tracks.
This resulted in a 1-year transformation journey aiming to:
1) Increase customer value by focusing on core activities
2) Optimize end-to-end processes (‘killing waste’)
3) Strengthen performance management & dialogue
We combined a holistic diagnostic approach with a strong focus on implementing quick-wins from the start to create the necessary platform for success.
After leading the transformation throughout the first 4 months, our role evolved to a coaching mode.

03Results

✓ 20% of team's capacity in FTE freed up after 9 months, partially reinvested in continuous improvement activities, partially in other business units
✓ Telemarketing pipeline streamlined, leading to a lifting-to-contracted-volume ratio increase of 67%
