“To build a new strategic, collaborative and integrated forecasting process, we selected Bristlecone based on their excellent industry reputation and expertise in the supply chain domain. Bristlecone implemented a sophisticated demand planning solution based on the SAP platform and established a forecasting methodology incorporating multiple streams of demand inputs to arrive at one plan. This was a critical foundation to support collaborative planning and improve our forecasting processes. Their consultants were very knowledgeable, professional and responsive to our needs. The advanced forecasting process has led to significant reduction in non-value-add and manual activities, and improved our data mining and reporting effectiveness. As a result, our ability to sense, assess and respond to customer requirements has significantly improved, as has our effectiveness to lock in process improvements and engage other related functions in a more systemic and impactful way.”
