    We deliver compelling economic returns and value through accelerated performance improvements in risk, EBITDA, cash and growth 

Delivering accelerated, sustainable improvements in risk, EBITDA, cash and growth

  • The global pandemic has accelerated changes that were already taking place in the retail landscape
  • Lockdowns have forced consumers to become reliant on e-commerce and many will not return to brick & mortar nearly as much
  • Many businesses are rethinking the optimal physical store and distribution center (DC) footprint, as well as the just-in-time supply chain model
  • Online giants, Amazon and Alibaba will come out of the pandemic stronger than ever
  • Digitization is essential to deliver greater transparency, allowing for better decisions and more efficient processes across the end-to-end supply chain
  • The retailers that survive and prosper will be those with supply, fulfillment and return networks that are flexible, agile, highly responsive (perhaps even predictive) and capable of adapting quickly to changing consumer lifestyles, thinking and demand

Board directors are asking CEOs detailed questions on what they are doing to support recovery, identify opportunities, and mitigate the risk associated with their supply chains. They want to know how the organization plans to rapidly develop transparency, visibility, and data-driven demand planning to fulfill the new requirements of B2B, B2C and the needs of the actual buyer. What will you tell your board?
