Leading Semiconductor Company Improves Ability to Respond to Volatility

Challenge: Companies that manufacture components for mobile devices operate in one of the most competitive and volatile industries. Their customers want feedback on the impact of changes quickly, but it often took two weeks to provide answers"”and the information wasn't always accurate.

Results: "With RapidResponse, we can assess the effects of customer variation in a matter of minutes, something that could take up to two weeks in the past," said their RapidResponse administrator.
