Challenges Your Consumer Products Business is Facing

Today’s Consumer Products companies are at the center of a quickly evolving mix of sales channels Wholesale, B2C, and DTC. Vendors are balancing the challenges of a dramatic increase in demand and rapidly changing expectations from channel partners and direct consumers.

To support these more complex demands, companies need to adopt the right-sized ERP (enterprise resource planning) solution to streamline key business processes such as logistics, transportation, warehousing, and e-Commerce while providing real-time analytics (Financial and Operational) anytime, anywhere.

These companies face a constantly developing marketplace with evolving competition pressures including automated electronic ordering, expanding digital marketplaces, and integrations. How a company deals with these market pressures will often provide them with differentiation and innovation as key elements in delivering on customer’s expectations.

With continually expanding and complicated supply chains and sales channels, Consumer Products manufacturers and distributors (sellers) must improve processes to positively impact sales volumes and scale - simply put - they must adapt to the new market or get out of the way. That is where cloud ERP solutions built for consumer products companies come into play.

Looking into the future of the consumer goods market

Consumer Products organizations will continue to look for a more robust range of supply chain and sales channel solutions that support complexity from basic to intricate. Customers are increasing the pressure on brands to offer a wider array of services not limited to in-store availability.

As market competition increases Consumer Products companies will expect ever-increasing transparency throughout their operations (internal as well as back through their suppliers) with the ability to track beyond the number of units completed to include work-in-progress and the quality status of those orders in process.

The growing demand for agility and quality, mixed with the expanding market for more unique delivery/channel options, will expand the complexity of fulfillment and value-added services along with the related supply chain, leading to a broader reliance on a mix of supply, shipping, and order processing options, including EDI, eCommerce, mobile and digital marketplaces.

In a world of continually expanding and blurring sales channels, Consumer Products companies will have the continuing need to increase their capabilities and make operational efficiency, flexibility, and scalability their dominant focus.

Technology Essentials for Key Decision Makers

COOs face the pressures to implement state-of-the-art processes and advanced technologies for digital transformation. These include applying IoT for warehouse operations, improving inventory optimization, quality, and delivery. COOs need a comprehensive platform upon which to develop and deploy connected software solutions and services, as well as improve the integration between IT/OT.

 CEOs need to ensure their company is agile enough to execute rapidly on key decisions – this impacts every aspect of the organization, people, processes, practices, partners and solutions. The CEO will continually need to balance innovation with cost, risk and investment.

 CIOs are at the heart of the required digital transformation and are required to move from old, unsustainable, insecure systems or their start-up platforms, to fit-to-standard-based solutions that will help their organization rapidly adapt to changing business models and readily navigate a turbulent external environment.

 VP of Supply Chain must become a more strategic partner to the business, moving from price-centricity to viewing and managing the complete supply chain, by improving visibility and applying best practices all while supporting the enterprise's changing sales channels.
