One of the biggest challenges for manufacturers today is the lack of granular visibility into distributor sales, inventory, and consumer offtake.
Knowing the answers to these questions is important for manufacturers to optimize inventory allocation, trade spend, and maximize reach. Incomplete and/or delayed information hampers business decisions leading to frequent out of stocks, failed promotions, loss of sales, and customer dissatisfaction. Unfortunately, such information is out of reach for most manufacturers, especially in emerging markets.
Smaller distributors with relatively low process maturity form a major chunk of distribution networks.
Distributors work on different systems and often paper-based processes. This compromises data consistency and quality, creating information silos.
Companies that have tried to do this on their own have found it to require significant time and effort chasing partners for data. It may even lead to rework due to frequent changes in distributors’ systems.
