Consumer Packaged Goods

Time for a change

Change is the order of the day

In the Consumer Products (or Fast Moving Consumer Goods) sector, as companies look to drive growth and profitability while reducing their environmental impact – which brings great challenges but also great opportunities. Some key industry themes include digital and eCommerce, product variety, complexity and net revenue management (NRM), shift to emerging markets, insight and analytics and customer collaboration and planning.

These changes in the ‘front office’ also continue to drive the need for transformation in the ‘back office’ (e.g. Finance, HR and IT), focussing on continuing to improve efficiency despite the optimum balance of ‘local vs. global’ being increasingly hard to get right.
 
We’ve worked with many of the world’s leading global consumer goods companies to help them to understand how best to move their business forward – be that in mature or emerging markets, on-line or in store, with customers or consumers, front office or back office – and we work closely with them to get on and do it.
