Product Expiration Reduction with Vanguard

Eight key ways to improve your bottom line with Vanguard Predictive Planning™

The food and beverage industry is not for the faint of heart. A company’s success depends heavily on its ability to effectively identify and manage risks, reduce costs and product expiration, and outperform competitors.

Consider how demand shifts in regions and/or quantities often call for corresponding changes in suppliers and cost structures. It is important that the production footprint changes alongside demand to maximize available production capacity and ultimately, profit.

Planners must invest more in capacity at certain locations or completely relocate production capacity to other facilities within the network.

The job becomes a blur of changes and shifts throughout the cycle. Only with automated modeling of these scenarios can a company easily balance existing capacity with the investment required to add more production. Whether a food and beverage company is looking for short-term planning, or to project long-range (20+ years), Vanguard Predictive Planning is up to the task.
