Challenge: A food company aimed to achieve and maintain a 98.5-percent service level — while improving forecast accuracy — to optimize planning and keep ahead of production requirements.
Solution: The company adopted a robust, integrated, collaborative, flexible and customizable solution that allowed for rapid decision-making. Because all indicators and parameters could now be accessed in a single solution, various departments could collaborate more frequently — with customizable views and tailored warnings to help quickly diagnose any issues.
Results: The primary and immediate benefits of implementing this solution included increased agility, reliability, anticipation and data centralization. The solution’s flexibility and broad functional spectrum has enabled the company to better control its working capital — resulting in a 50-percent drop in inventory level and a 62-percent reduction in stock waste at year-end — all while improving customer service.
