Mobility & Transportation

The automotive industry is experiencing disruption as technology and user behavior are transforming traditional vehicle manufacturing. As legislation, consumer demand and supply chains change, the sector will continue to expand. Baker Tilly can help automotive companies adapt and new companies enter the market.

    Services for today's challenges

    Many mobility and automotive companies face obstacles while trying to obtain clear and accurate cost data. By engaging in a standard costing approach, and not taking the time to properly understand which products are responsible for driving profitability, you are damaging your bottom line.

    To aid leaders, Baker Tilly has developed a Dynamic Costing® solution and approach. Dynamic Costing examines the real labor and individuals that are touching the product, providing visibility to shift from standard cost accounting to cost management analytics. By leveraging industry specialization and advanced analytics, our team of professionals are able to map how that costing data flows onto the company’s financial statements.

    Navigating the rapidly changing supply chain landscape leaves manufacturers with little time to have complete visibility over their indirect material expenditures. To remain competitive against the competition, understanding how you can reduce your total cost of ownership (TCO) of your maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) and streamline operations is vital. Baker Tilly and DSSI, a leading procurement services company focused on indirect materials and services, have created the Dynamic Procurement service offering. Powered by advanced artificial intelligence (AI), we provide analytics and reporting capabilities to help automate purchasing and spend optimization.

    Determining and planning for your next large capital spend project is a complex and time-consuming process. Whether you want to expand your production capabilities or re-shore operations, our manufacturing PDO office uses a data-drive analytics to help you navigate market challenges by providing labor analytics, site suitability assessments and financial modeling to ensure you’re constructing a sound development.

    The automotive industry is an exceptionally fast changing industry. To stay on top of your business needs, Baker Tilly stands ready to help you respond to today’s most pressing business challenges across your entire supply chain. From strategy through delivery, our supply chain professionals are prepared to help your business redefine and optimize their supply chain and operations, making their enterprises more agile, supply chains more resilient and communities stronger.
