  • “Our market visit reports are all on email – no way to reference them systematically.”
  • “We have limited Visibility to NPI, Marketing, Promotion & Price Changes – Extremely manual processes.”
  • “Managing unique seasonality and SKU variances across my areas is challenging.”
  • “We have Supply Chain Master data challenges.”
  • “With significant shifts in demand, our statistical forecasting is driving a decline in forecast accuracy.”
  • “We have Silo-ed, Sequential Planning across Distribution, Production, Procurement Operations.”
  • “A lack of collaboration between various links in the supply chain, is causing poor insights into SKU levels leading to over/under stocks.”
  • “We have limited end-to-end visibility on supply chain status, capacity and constraints.”
  • "Slow, siloed planning processes without clear view on constraints lead to alignment gap between planning, finance and operations execution."
  • "Controlling logistics costs Volatile fuel costs and disruptions threaten profit margins."
  • "Increasing volatility of raw material and commodity costs."
  • "Our S&OP process is conducted on PowerPoint – A big productivity drain driving highly ineffective meetings."
