The journey from suppliers at one end to customers at the other has many steps, and along the way there are any number of places where mistakes, delays, unnecessary costs, inefficiency, poor communication and missed opportunities can creep in. So it’s not surprising that most companies have supply chains that underperform, typically leaving 5 to 10 percentage points in potential gross margin gains—and often more—unrealized.
Supply chain project management is a process that allows you to coordinate resources and activities in order to deliver a defined goal within a set time-frame, budget and scope.
Project management is a good way to create structure and predictability from complexity. Multifaceted project management is required to ensure that a defined supply chain task reaches its finish on time, on budget and within scope.
Supply chain project management has a scope, both internal and external, relative to the organization. As a specialty, it serves the unique requirements of projects that span the dynamic relationships of supply chain participants located inside and outside organizations.

A Paymaster Attorney acts as a neutral third party to receive funds from any transaction between two separate individuals or businesses. The Paymaster maintains an escrow account, then disburses those funds to the seller or the appropriate recipient. After taking a small commission as payment for his services the paymaster reconciles the escrow account and fills out the necessary IRS paperwork.
The Paymaster is not party to the transaction and does not know the exact time that it will close. Part of his job is to check periodically with the escrow account to ensure that the payment has been transferred in, then to disburse the funds as per his directions. Nor is the Paymaster allowed to disclose the identities of the parties to the transaction.
Paymaster services facilitate the transfer of commodities and financial instruments without the inconvenience that can arise through using Letters of Credit. No credit scores or bank references are required of either party. New companies with no established credit history can trade freely.
