The joint initiative digitizes end-to-end supply chain processes at Eckes-Granini and breaks down information silos within the organization

DALLAS/MUNICH, 17th November 2022 – o9 Solutions, a leading enterprise AI software platform provider for transforming planning and decision-making, and Genpact (NYSE: G), a global professional services firm focused on delivering digital transformation, today announced the completion of the first phase to digitize and augment the global supply chain of Eckes-Granini, a leading supplier of fruit juices and beverages in Europe.

This transformation initiative combines Genpact’s decades of expertise in retail and consumer goods, supply chain optimization, and digitally enabled operations with o9’s Digital Brain platform, which is powered by o9’s proprietary Enterprise Knowledge Graph (EKG) technology for end-to-end supply chain and scenario planning. Together, the o9 and Genpact teams enabled a digitalization process that breaks down information silos and transforms Eckes-Granini’s operations into efficiently integrated ecosystems that are fully transparent and streamlined for the company, its vendors, and suppliers.

The implementation will reduce supply chain costs and inventories, eliminate excess inventory, waste and duplicative processes and enhance operating efficiencies to support long-term goals. In the first phase, Eckes-Granini went live with the Valorized Demand Planning process in Spain, Germany, Hungary, Austria, France, Finland, Sweden, and its international business, bringing together Supply Chain, Finance, Sales and Marketing under the same process and tool.

“By digitizing our supply chains, we gain transparency to make more meaningful decisions with our alliances and inventories across the value chains, as well as continue to offer the highest quality of products that our customers expect,” said Tobias Rudolf, Chief Information Officer at Eckes-Granini. “We are striving to become one of the most sustainable companies in the juice and fruit beverages sector.”

Traditional supply chains consist of several isolated steps, from marketing to product development, manufacturing, and sales to the customer. Our partnership with o9 and our combined expertise will help streamline the process to drive efficiencies and long-term sustainability,” said Andreas Baader, European Supply Chain Management Lead, Genpact. “This deep integration we will provide enables Eckes-Granini and all its partners to plan together, run data-driven scenarios, and manage variables such as production, storage and transportation, cost, sustainability goals, and profit margin.

“We are excited to help Eckes-Granini grow its business in Europe. The o9 Digital Brain platform will help to turn data into knowledge to enable better and faster supply chain decisions,” said Chakri Gottemukkala, Co-founder and CEO of o9 Solutions. “Thanks to our unique Enterprise Knowledge Graph (EKG) technology, Eckes-Granini will gain better insights into what is truly driving demand. We look forward to working with Eckes-Granini.”
