CPG and Retail
Supply chains of Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) companies and retailers have been transformed by shifts in technology, social media, and consumer preferences. Omni-channel commerce compels CPG and retail enterprises to deliver superior products and differentiated services.
CPG companies and retailers need to adopt an agile supply chain to sense and respond to dynamic purchase behaviors, demand-supply fluctuations, and product lifecycles while minimizing costs.
Advanced tools can sense demand, identify spend categories, and provide better supply chain visibility. They ultimately improve inventory management. Our approach goes beyond simply refining customer service and inventory optimization—we balance demand with supply on a robust Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) platform. The process also improves demand-forecasting accuracy, streamlines warehouse operations, and maximizes utilization of plants and distribution centers.
