Catalyst Investment Managers

"After undertaking a broad diagnostic, GRA identified some great opportunities for our business (relating to both working capital and profit improvement). The GRA team worked effectively with management to prioritise the key areas of focus in terms of inventory reduction, freight cost optimisation, distribution network structure and broader organisational processes such as S&OP. Importantly, the review focused on opportunities that are deliverable and actionable."

Testimonials

"GRA built capability within the organisation on the importance of S&OP and its role in managing the business. This enabled senior leadership to fully engage in the S&OP process to drive an issues-based, KPI-driven S&OP process with clear ownership of the forecast and other key areas."
