Howdy Partner!

Forging New Partnerships with a Mega-Retailer to Bring Back Profits.

The problem:

As our client’s retailers continued to consolidate, the customer relationships that had once been in place no longer accommodated the expanding needs of the mega-retailer. Our client’s partnerships were in jeopardy and profits were at risk in a major way.

Our Approach:

  • Work with the VP of Sales Strategy to develop a joint customer business planning process that is unique and tailored to an industry that is changing quickly and consolidating at a rapid rate
  • Establish a cross-functional team of key personnel
  • Identify breakthrough ideas to drive mutual profitability to client and customer
  • Develop joint plans with the top 8 retailers who comprise 40% of volume
  • Codify and expand our process to build joint plans with retailers on a global level

The Result:

Today, the company has established strong cross-functional relationships with key retailers, has dramatically improved performance at two strategic sites, and is well positioned with the others. Additionally, the global plan is now a best-practice guideline for other manufacturers. By achieving full alignment at the CEO-level and across all functions, they have experienced dramatic growth in profits, over 100%, with what is today their largest retailer.
