Results

By implementing our planning process a fast growing digitally native CPG distributor improved in-stocks by over 20%. Automation of many of their buying activities now saves an average of 3 days of work each week.

A leading manufacturer uses our BI platform to track their retail businesses- from their own direct sales to the major chains. What used to take them 8-10 hours per week is now a 15 minute process. 

A well known Shoe and Leather Goods brand and retailer uses our automated VMI solution, improving brick and mortar and on-line in-stocks by 25% while reducing total ownership without missing any sales.  

A custom built allocation improvement dashboard enabled a leading home textiles manufacturer to reduce lost sales by 22% and uncovered other opportunities that would otherwise go unnoticed.
