The company leveraged SAP SNC to base replenishment and ordering on actual downstream demand rather than on high-level forecasts. As a result, Colgate-Palmolive was able to:

  • Cut vendor-managed inventory from five days to one day
  • Improve the granularity and timeliness of customer data
  • Reduce manual order handling and processing
  • Help planners spend more time analyzing business impacts and less time cleansing data
  • Enable the company to keep more products in stock during key promotions via effective forecasting and promotions planning
