Mid-Sized CPG Company Improves Sales, Operations, Customer Service - With One Solution

Challenge: With limited IT resources, multiple ERP systems, and an unprecedented need for greater business visibility, a mid-sized CPG company turned to Silvon for help.

Solution & Results: Silvon's Stratum solution was up-and-running in less than 60 days; and today, more than 300 business users at this consumer products company have immediate, web-based insight into how well their respective business areas are performing. This has allowed them to sell more strategically through in-depth customer analysis; to reduce operating expenses by identifying unneeded or unwarranted costs across the enterprise; to "rightsize" inventory investments through better forecasting and forecast analysis; and to maintain high fill rates and service levels for their customers. A central data repository consisting of organized information from the company's various ERP systems drives Stratum's analytics and reports. Plus, the effort required by IT to manage Stratum on a day-to-day basis is minimal, with remote management services available by Silvon, if needed.

About the Solution Provider: Silvon is a global provider of planning, forecasting and business intelligence applications for manufacturers and distributors. The Company's Stratumâ"žÂ¢ solution enables businesses to easily leverage ERP and other data on products, customers, suppliers, inventory and operational performance using best-practice analytics, performance scorecards, dashboards and reports.
