Challenges

  • Given the complexity of manufacturing/distributing outdoor products (e.g. style change, technology advancements, etc.) it was easy for data to go “rogue”.
  • It was impossible to accurately forecast sales and identify products that weren’t selling in a timely manner across specific markets.
  • Plans to upgrade to new manufacturing resource planning (MRP) application were stalling out with previous attempts to master Product data – ongoing effort for 1 year with no results.

Strategy

  • Build analytical MDM solution to master 60,000 products.
  • Select master data management software that works on the Microsoft stack with a quick implementation timeline.
  • Design workflows to include new product rollout, retirement of old product and identification of “at-risk” products across 5 ERPs.

Outcome

  • Project work completed under 6 months with limited resources – fast time to value on implementation.
  • Identified $30MM in at-risk products across 5 ERPs for strategic decision making across product lines.
  • Streamlined product management rollout and product retirement workflows that have resulted in significant cost savings with efficiencies gained.
  • Vista was able to relaunch MRP initiative with 30% faster deployment of new application based on clean, trusted product data foundation powered by the Profisee Platform.
