Better decisions in the Food & Beverage industry

In the Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) industry, agility and responsiveness is key to remaining competitive. FMCG companies face a constant battle with changing market preferences, pressure from competitors, and demands from retailers, creating the need to keep a close eye on operational costs and make strategic decisions promptly in order to stay ahead of the game.

Typically the end-to-end FMCG process flow is managed by a collection of disparate systems and processes, implemented over several years and potentially linked through the medium of data exports, or not linked at all. There are also likely to be numerous spreadsheets at the heart of analysis and planning activities, which require lengthy manual input, don’t always contain the detail required to fully understand your position, and risk being out-of-date before they’ve been completed.
