Bluecrux’s journey gives importance to sustainable change. By developing solutions through collaborations and implementing them with the client company’s culture in mind, long-term and successful changes are sustained. This is the only way for companies to rise to the challenges that keep appearing in the market.
A recent use case that shows the quality of work that Bluecrux delivers involves one of the largest FMCG companies in the world. Owning nearly 500 brands across 100 countries in the world, this client needed a demand-driven supply chain. The challenges in achieving this goal involved increasing the traceability from grain to shelf, reducing transportation and supply chain costs by working on self-driving operations, and managing the increasing sales volume.
Bluecrux supported the company in defining the business use cases and scenarios in the new way of working for MPS, DS, MRP, and SNP. Business testing of functional software delivery was another area Bluecrux assisted in. Through data definition and delivery support, the client was able to tackle the challenges that hindered their optimal performance. Bluecrux was also able to create and deliver training in project planning and management as well as stakeholder management to meet the customer’s needs.
As a result, Bluecrux was able to streamline processes to work in a demand-driven environment to manage short-term exceptions. The company also enjoyed enhanced capabilities to run what-if scenarios and visualize the impact on different key business metrics. Such unique solutions make it easier for the clients to assimilate into their existing systems and operations.
