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
