The Challenges with New Product Rollout

The customer faced significant obstacles in efficiently introducing new products across their extensive global network. One primary challenge was the persistently high turnaround time, which curbed the customer’s ability to bring innovative offerings to market. This delay affected their competitiveness and hampered their capacity to meet evolving consumer demands in a timely manner. 

The customer also identified a lack of visibility and transparency within the new product introduction processes, particularly concerning master data management. The lack of clear data and processes made decision-making more complex, resulting in inefficiencies and delays.

A critical part of overcoming these challenges involved the need for standardizing processes when introducing new products in 160 countries. However, inconsistencies in procedures and protocols across regions hindered the customers’s efforts to streamline operations and ensure consistency in product launches.
