Global Demand Visibility Strengthens the Supply Chain

Challenge: A global pharmaceutical developer and manufacturer found its multiple, disconnected systems were impeding its visibility across its operations. In addition, each product line had individual forecasting needs, geographic demands and local processes. The problem became apparent when it would take 2 - 3 days to answer the CEO when asked how a particular product line was selling in a specific region. The company needed to standardize its demand planning processes and leverage consistent best practices.

Solution: The manufacturer turned to Logility Voyager Solutions to break down the silos and improve transparency across its product lines and nearly 150 markets.

Results: With Voyager Solutions in place, the pharmaceutical company established a global demand planning process, standards and metrics that can incorporate local data and processes. This greater visibility across markets allowed the company to look at sales trends in a central environment, improve customer service and identify and resolve problems more quickly.
