  • Succeeding in the market today is not just about providing products and services based on consumer and shopper insight. It is about moving ahead from insight to foresight and developing consumer goods that redefine your consumer's tastes and preferences. Consumer goods organizations are re-engineering the way they connect their brands with their consumers based on the following business drivers:

    • Business to Business (B2B) and Direct to Consumer (D2C) initiatives
    • Continuous innovation and value chain optimization
    • Rapid globalization and growth in emerging markets such as APAC and LATAM
    • Surge of new brands & shopping channels

Business Challenges

  • Pricing optimization: Today, well priced is well begun. With multi-channel strategies in place, CPG enterprises also have to get real-time about user requirements. Using analytics to understand shopper trends at the point of purchase and then integrating it with the entire value chain — from sourcing, and back to point of sale — can create a more efficient business model and engender consumer loyalty, while paving the way for enhanced profitability.

  • Using collaboration and information for a competitive edge: CPG players can realize great value from leveraging an ecosystem of partners for seamless collaboration across the value chain, and co-creating with them to crunch time to launch. Reaching out to consumers with targeted information through non-traditional channels, with intelligent technology, gives the enterprise room to‘rethink’, repackage, and re-channel.

  • Emerging markets: Even as emerging economies are providing windows to accelerate growth and increase margins, they are being evaluated against a variety of dimensions a largely untapped consumer base that will require unique supply chain solutions, finding the right talent and resources. While global capacity and the flow of capital are additional variables, sustained growth in new markets calls for innovation hubs, smart sourcing, and re-engineered technology platforms and business processes.
