The Origin of Fast Movers
Tapping into the power of Server Technology’s global contractors, the Fast Mover line represents some of the most popular rack PDU options based on product popularity, meaning there’s a solution for every need in this line of PDUs.
Developing the Fast Mover line was a no-brainer, says Server Technology’s Director of Manufacturing Operations, Jeremy Foroszowsky.
“We looked back at our high-volume products that customers consistently ordered and made a subset of our core product class and called them Fast Movers,” Foroszowsky says. “These are PDUs we’ve agreed to hold in our inventory so we can achieve that three- to five-day ship time. As a result, we’ve set up our supply chain to be able to accomplish that.”
“Three to five days is fast,” he says. “With most of our PDUs, we’re typically looking at a 10-day window. Normally, if we’re going to build something on the production floor, we need around five days, not only to process the order, but to pick the parts, build it and ship it. Even that is fast.”
Foroszowsky is quick to add that the Fast Mover line is just a small part of Server Technology’s commitment to delivering quality solutions for its customers.
“We’re not a commodity based company,” he says. “We’re based on specialization and getting the customers exactly what they need. So, coming up with this was really important to recognize what our competition is doing as well as being able to provide customized products.”
