The Wipro team provided expert training, management consulting, data management and data sciences support to the client. The Wipro consulting team played a very active role in helping the client navigate various challenges and successfully achieve the desired business outcomes. This partnership led to a high level of satisfaction and user adoption.
The client decided on a quick three-month pilot to deploy Promax Optimize for their UK operations; initially to support their largest retailer, and then add seven more retailers over time. Driven by the success of the initial pilot, the client has now deployed the solution to seven more countries, covering the business for an additional 20 retailers. The pilot phase provided a global template design that was quickly adapted, and modiﬁed as necessary, for the new markets.
Solution highlights include:
- Visibility to predictions and causal inﬂuences (price) on consumption and activity demand
- Visibility to net effect of promotional activity on the bottom line
- View of manufacturer and retailer margins and ROI
- Visibility to the performance of promotions across time, and market share of client against competitor products across multiple dimensions
- Category evolution view, providing visibility to the decomposed retail sales of the selected products over time
Through this successful deployment, the client now has a stable, and repeatable process, to measure and optimize trade promotion ROI across their business.
- Improved net sales revenue by over $1Mn, and net margin by over $1.15Mn, after the ﬁrst six-months of deployment
- Increased total revenue by $3Mn after six months of deployment
- Highly accurate models, driven through machine learning framework and the collaborative planning approach, yielded high levels of user adoption with the solution
The Promax optimize solution has enabled cross-functional teams of the client to have better discussions on promo strategy, promo priorities by brands, brand platform tactics, etc. The tool brought in a ROI mindset in the departments involved, based on which potential action plans have been laid out.
