Vanguard Predictive Planning helps consumer packaged goods companies face industry challenges

New competitors, new regulations, new channels, omni-channel sales and fulfillment, and the marketplace repercussions of social media have created an unforgiving and ever-changing business environment for consumer packaged goods companies (CPG). Amazon, Walmart, Target, and a select few others dominate brick-and-mortar and online distribution. Large volumes of sales generated through such relatively few channel partners requires accurate forecasting and effective planning and execution.

Additional industry challenges include:

  • Product maturity (slower growth)
  • Global competition, including piracy
  • Stagnant wages, which affect consumer spending
  • Heightened consumer awareness (price competition)
  • Limited shelf space
