Comvita

"GRA has been working with us off and on for over four years. After setting a transformation agenda for our supply chain that encompassed business process, organisational structure, and planning systems, they’ve been there to help us make it a reality whenever we’ve needed them."

"GRA are consummate professionals and have been instrumental in delivering real value from our supply chain. They take a partnering approach and have great pride in what they do; I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them."
Scott Coulter, Chief Operating Officer, Comvita 

 

"Comvita contracted GRA to do a holistic supply chain review. Over the following two years GRA helped us implement their recommendations; from structural changes and planning tool selection through to the development of our customised S&OP process.  Because of this work our supply chain is in a much stronger position."
Terry White, Global Planning Manager, Comvita

 

 

"GRA made sense of the complex issues hampering our supply chain operation. They identified a clear strategy and road map to move towards best practice, allowing for the specific business issues and practicalities of Comvita’s environment, locally and globally. They get the technical and process side, but also the importance of people and engagement in the whole demand planning process."

Erin Swanson, General Manager – Operational Excellence, Comvita
