"The level of customization and various optimization angles are not covered by off-the-shelf technologies or an ERP."

— Willem Vesters, VP Global Supply Chain Planning

We worked with Liberty Global to build a demand aggregation tool to answer questions like

  • What we are allowing ourselves to invest in network expansion with a proper payback time?
  • How do we create a view to calculate and optimize a return out of that expanded customer base?
  • How do we get the insights needed to start optimizing towards cash, revenue or capital investment?

Results

  • Significant increased planning accuracy for the scope of materials. Before, the planning accuracy was nonexistent. This has allowed Liberty Global to present a more accurate demand forecast to their key vendors.
  • A much better value-based conversation about investment and budget control. We can focus more on opportunities and can quantify the results of an accurate demand forecast on a bottom-line impact level.

Testimonial

"We can calculate scenarios based on a long-range plan 2-3 years out. That is something we will never be able to depict in off-the-shelf tools. The level of customization and various optimization angles are not covered by off-the-shelf technologies or an ERP.
The momentum came when we saw the prototype coming together during a 2-day Proof of Concept workshop. We had a rapid prototype built over night that we could review the next day."
