Discover why most consumer goods manufacturers:

  • Have a handle on current metrics like inventory, but can’t predict problems days or weeks in advance
  • Get surprised by out-of-stocks, last minute orders and expiring inventory – and pay the price in OTIF fines, expediting fees, markdowns and customer relationships
  • Execute a weeks-old plan, but lack mechanisms to adjust when reality deviates from it
  • Struggle with siloed data and systems that prevent the collaboration necessary to solve complex problems
