Optimized Planning Tool Transforms Company, Brings 6x Return on Total Investment

Challenge: Like all manufacturers, our client's value chain behaves in a non-linear fashion influenced by supply chain capacities, straight and over-time labor rates, input/output price curves, etc., making it difficult to focus on the most profitable activities and products. Recently, demand volatility, input price fluctuations with contractual discount curves, retailer pressures, and multiple decision points along the value chain increased the difficulty of conducting business using traditional costing and supply planning tools.

Solution: Our client addressed these business issues by implementing Integrated Business Planner (IBP) technology to: better understand the financial and operational impact of customer requests; identify the most profitable products; reduce costs; improve ability to monitor performance against forecasts and KPIs; create a full-fledged, forward-looking financial plan on a weekly basis; and increase competitiveness.

Results: Success has yielded the following: 6X return on total investment; significant cost savings through policy changes; and competitive advantage in deal negotiations.

About the Solution Provider: River Logic provides Consumer Goods Companies solutions to optimize planning, decision support, and performance management across the value chain. CPM solutions are built on the predictive modeling and analysis platform, Enterprise Optimizer® (EO). EO drives our differentiation and yields significant commercial advantages to partners and clients.
