P&G Grooming

Procter & Gamble’s Grooming Business Unit (P&G Grooming) serves hundreds of millions of men and women in more than 180 countries with their global brands: Gillette, Venus, Joy, The Art of Shaving, and Braun. 

P&G Grooming continually seeks innovative ways to leverage their end-to-end synchronized supply network to maintain its market leadership, and create value for consumers, retailers and shareholders.

The Problem

P&G Grooming had a long-standing process to reconcile supply planning (demand, production, and inventory) across its regions, involving all manufacturing locations clustered in 8 regions. The demand signal, the inventory targets, and the production plans all came from separate systems, with each region adding its own local business intelligence making the entire reconciliation process slower than the pace needed to succeed in a competitive business environment.

After a P&G-wide competitive selection process in Silicon Valley, P&G Grooming engaged Solvoyo to digitize this supply planning process. The cloud-based platform went live in February 2018 as one of the first P&G projects to reach a global scale.

The Solution

The Solvoyo platform is fully integrated to P&G’s data sources and performs global supply planning rapidly and consistently. Furthermore, the platform now provides over 100 users in 8 regions and the global HQ a unique set of visibility and analytics capabilities, scalability to handle supply network data at the transaction level and support to the planners to turn big data into insights and decisions for measurable better results.

Goals achieved:

  • Digitization of the global supply planning process & integration into P&G data sources
  • Reduction of planner effort across the globe
  • Ability to retain corporate memory
  • Capability to aggregate/disaggregate global data
  • Ability to customize reports and fully visualize global data
  • Ability to quickly complete what-if analyses on any demand to supply interphase

"With this platform, we are able to see an internally consistent global picture for demand, forecasts, inventory, shipments, cross-supplies, and production. The platform gives both the regions and the global HQ the ability to maintain corporate memory while identifying plan discrepancies proactively. Along the way, we eliminated spreadsheets from the process and simultaneously increased process speed and planner efficiency across all regions."

"Clearly, this project succeeded because P&G Grooming leadership is open to innovation. After they sponsored the project, they let Solvoyo work directly with the regions across the globe to develop a common planning system of record, common assumptions and a spreadsheet-free demand-supply reconciliation process. As a result, P&G's robust global digital platform experienced rapid user acceptance. They now can trust their data and take proactive actions. Of course, we are very happy about that."
