The Age of “never normal” is driving the Digital Transformation of grocery supply chains.

Common grocery
challenges by role

  • “Changing consumer preferences with the move towards fresh, natural/organic/healthy, convenience foods and locally sourced items impacting sales plan.”
  • “We are seeing a shift in channel preferences with the need to support various store formats and omnichannel options.”
  • “Constant introduction of new items to address changing consumer tastes stresses shelf space and supply chain.”
  • “We have massive volumes of customer, supplier, product, and market data available but not being used effectively to gain insights, drive decisions and business results.”
  • “Balancing trade offs: Replenish stores to minimize food waste, ensure freshness, and at the same time lower out of stocks.”
  • “Creating granular yet accurate store level forecasts by day of week.”
  • “A lack of collaboration between various links in the supply chain, causing poor decisions leading to over/under stocks.”
  • “Efficiently flowing products to stores taking into account DC/store labor, storage capacity and available transportation is getting more difficult.”
  • “Allocation of constrained supply is often contentious and sub-optimal."
  • “Changing assortments and new item launches are resulting in excess inventory and food waste.”
  • “Slow, siloed planning processes without clear view on constraints leading to sales and margin alignment gaps between finance, merchandising and operations.”
  • “We see Increasing volatility of raw material / finished goods costs as well as unpredictability in transportation costs.”
  • “Our growth return on marketing & promotion is not meeting our expectations.”
  • “We cannot answer management what-if questions without timely offline spreadsheet work.”
