CONSUMER PRODUCTS CASE STUDIES


A recent study on the positive effects of effective utilization of business intelligence indicated that mid-market companies are uniquely positioned to exploit analytics. We whole-heartedly agree. We have seen first-hand the positive impacts of effective analytics, business intelligence and data visibility in consumer product companies over and over again. Benefit areas vary by business – sales growth, margin performance, channel profitability or inventory management.

KeenVision will work with your team to make effective use of business intelligence technology.

Inventory Management Intelligence


A Fortune 100 leader in toys and apparel worked with the leaders of Keen Vision to analyze and understand a growing mismatch in inventory. KeenVision provided a complete analysis of inventory position, as well as, an identification of inventory targets for liquidation.

Working together, Keen Vision and the client team designed and implemented a new inventory management process to routinely assess inventory position and identify slow-moving inventory.

Host Analytics Performance Reporting


A supplier of commercial and residential building materials needed financial visibility for its executives and branch managers. The application was able to quickly absorb the data and reporting needs of a recent acquisition – providing one consistent source of visibility to the combined entity.

KeenVision worked with the finance team to implement performance reporting through Host Analytics. The client now disperses complete financial and metric-based reporting to executives and branch managers for all aggregated entities.

CFO Advisory with Business Analytics


A privately held flameless candle company needed a financial game plan to maximize financial results while attracting an acquirer. Leaders from KeenVision implemented a weekly cash forecasting process to manage tight working capital resources during peak volume seasons.

KeenVision also worked to implement inexpensive business analytic solutions focused on sales, product margin and channel profitability to support the M&A process.
