Increasingly the IT industry Manufacturing, Engineering and Supply Chain Executives are challenging their traditional corporate policies in regard to the reuse of used components in new system manufacture. It is the substantial (80%+) hard cash savings achieved by fulfilling manufacturing supply chain or spares inventory demand from used parts recovered from returned systems, that is driving the broader adoption of this corporate discipline. The potential cost savings are just too large to ignore, particularly as IT hardware margins are under increasing pressure.

RLA Vegas 2015 - Estimating The Value Of A Money-Back Guarantee Policy In The Online Retail Context | PresentationsDetails
$19
While Money-Back-Guarantee (MBG) return policies are common in practice, the academic literature provides little guidance on the value, if any, that consumers assign to such a policy. For online retailers, both shipping charges and seller reputation may influence the perceived value of MBGs. A non-refundable forward shipping charge is likely to be perceived by consumers as an implicit restocking fee and hence, decreases the value of an MBG policy. On the other hand, good customer feedback may signal that MBGs will be handled easily, thus increasing their value in the eyes of consumers. To investigate the value of MBGs in the online context, we collect the final selling prices of identical consumer electronics products offered by different vendors (with different return policies) on eBay auctions. We estimate that offering an MBG policy for online consumer electronics increases a customer's valuation of a product by an average of 5.2%, which is significantly influenced by both seller reputation and shipping charges. Our results provide an empirical measure of the value of an MBG that can be weighed against the cost implications of providing such a policy.

May 21 11:00 - Competing through Improved Returns Management | PresentationsDetails
$19
Managing return product flow is one of the area that it is becoming progressively important to the success of supply chain firms because the volume of the products, the worth of the products the costs of activities and the intrinsic value for the customers For example one of the dimension that it is becoming more relevant in customer satisfaction is the area of returns management, in the same time less attention on the process and liberal returns policy mean more returns, more processing, and thus more expenses incurred. Moreover poorly managed processes can impact a company’s brand reputation, sustainability impact and profitability. Product returns have too often been the forgotten step-child of business strategy, as they seemingly represent the antithesis of what a company is about: selling goods and services to customers Returns represent a puzzling situation: on the marketing side, after sales policy are part of the customer satisfaction policy. But on the operations and logistics side, those policy might mean more returns across the supply chain. Yet many firms fail to manage the reverse flow of products well because they do not understand the value-creating potential of effective and efficient returns management. During the seminar will be presented an international research with also the colleagues Diane Mollenkopf and Robert Frankel on the phenomenon of returns management in a business-to-business context from a managerial perspective, employing an in-depth case study approach with a very large sample of firms in Italy, United States and Australia. The purpose of the international sample was to identify commonalities and differences in returns management practices in different operating environments. Firms need to develop competitive capabilities that will enable them to thrive in a challenging world. Improved RM is more necessary than in the past because it represents a virtual greenfield opportunity for creating value that is likely not replicated easily or well by your competition.
