challenges by role

  • “Product allocations driven by the pandemic have stressed relationships”
  • “I’m selling a large portfolio –exceptions only please!”
  • “Heavy regulation and political pressure on pricing impacting selling approach”
  • “Our leading demand drivers & indicators not being monitored systematically - Creates surprises”
  • “We need better collaboration and data with downstream customers to anticipate their needs”
  • “Managing product expiration and cold chain logistics requirements is becoming more complex.”
  • “Severe supply chain blocks caused by significant decreases in air cargo capacity, sea freight, and transport logistics.”
  • “Allocation of constrained supply is often contentious and sub-optimal”
  • “Historical shipment signals are not good predictors for our future demand”
  • “Our batch planning systems are not providing real-time answers to demand and supply change what-ifs”
  • Lack of visibility to anticipate and simulate scenarios and react fast to change
  • “We cannot answer management what-if questions in real time”
  • “Our AOP /finance process is disconnected from the rolling forecasts of our S&OP process”
  • “We have a reduced pool of suppliers from which we can purchase products and thus reduced bargaining power.”

Testimonials

Trusted by the industry leaders

"Our goal is to achieve 80% of touchless operations. What we mean by that is taking away a lot of the manual operations, enabling automation [...] Through the work with o9, we've eliminated them, and now these manual operations are mostly a thing of the past."

Vijay Guliam

Head of Technical Programs

"The o9 platform unlocked significant processes for us in order to effectively address changes in our volumes and to align those volumes to our labor capabilities at our distribution centers."

Ashley Ward

Ashley Ward

Senior Manager Supply Chain Planning

"The decisions taken by the logistics team are already processed by the engine, a priori. They validate it, it feeds into our execution engine for track-building and shipments. The workbench allows our team to move the same-day order fill rate. Last month we actually achieved a 98.5% OFR."

"o9 is moving the team’s workload and energy away from executing mundane, tedious tasks like determining how many units of each SKU go to each store every single week. We're moving them upstream into preseason planning, into developing strategy, and then the system executes automatically."
