Bringing strategy to life
One of the largest distributors of fresh produce in the US struggled to connect its data across its network of independent growers. Plus, the company realized that keeping up with changes in demand was no easy task.
To figure out the root cause of the problem, we partnered with the company's team to analyze how end users, from suppliers to employees, managed and consumed data. We quickly realized that the lack of quality and real-time data resulted in delayed communication of harvest orders between harvest planners and growers. Additionally, immediate visibility into production, demand, and supply-chain changes was nonexistent.
So, we jumped into action, migrating all their data to the cloud and developing applications for real-time updates on harvest orders and forecasting. By building a connected data ecosystem, we reduced peripheral costs by 30%, improved operational efficiencies by 20%, and increased time to market by 50%. More importantly, we significantly enhanced customer and employee satisfaction by making the data consumable and actionable.
