Consumer Goods (CPG) Supply Chain Solutions
One Network helps consumer products companies achieve world-class performance in supply chain planning (S&OP) and execution across every trading partner in real time. Boost revenues, increase service levels, and lower inventories at the same time.
Deliver Best-in-Class Service Levels While Minimizing Inventories
One Network’s cloud platform provides an end-to-end operating backbone that supports some of the world’s largest consumer goods companies. By connecting to our “many-to-many” network environment, you can manage planning, execution, and transactions across tens of thousands of your trading partners.
The result is unprecedented visibility and control across your supply chain while reducing total system cost to deploy, maintain, and support.
Today most consumer goods companies lack the ability to generate either order or inventory visibility with actionability across their supply network. They also lack the ability to quickly respond to fluctuating consumer demands, frequently resulting in sales promotions that run out of stock which in turn leads to lost business and customers. They absorb increasing numbers of product launch failures, struggle with higher inventory costs, and are saddled with ROI’s on trade promotions that can often turn negative.
One of the requirements is One Network. We’ve made it a requirement of business engagement. If you don’t want to participate, then we’re not going to do business together!
