"Most tools can only do one thing, like inventory management or production scheduling. Pharos can do integrated planning so we can combine inventory and production optimization, and gain insight into both distribution costs and manufacturing costs."

— Bob Woodburn, SVP Supply Chain Papyrus group

We worked with Papyrus to build a new central replenishment solution, called Pharos, to support the new centralised planning and replenishment way of working.


  • A daily cycle of planning and optimization executed by a central planning department.
  • A reduction in stock and a slight reduction in stock locations.
  • A better and leaner physical network and, thus, reduced cost.
