How To Enable A Demand-Driven Supply Network For Superior Customer Responsiveness And Flexibility Webcast
Join this on-demand Webcast to learn how Colgate-Palmolive Company, the multinational manufacturer of products for home and personal care, achieves more effective near-term planning throughout the supply network. Colgate wanted to shift planner focus to near-term demand signals and have the ability to respond quickly to unexpected demand.
The company leveraged SAP SNC to base replenishment and ordering on actual downstream demand rather than on high-level forecasts. As a result, Colgate-Palmolive was able to:
Cut vendor-managed inventory from five days to one day
Improve the granularity and timeliness of customer data
Reduce manual order handling and processing
Help planners spend more time analyzing business impacts and less time cleansing data
Enable the company to keep more products in stock during key promotions via effective forecasting and promotions planning
