“We urgently needed to develop improved accountability and control around working capital. We brought GRA in to implement a companywide S&OP process to deliver a step change improvement to supply chain outcomes. They delivered advanced planning capabilities across sales, product, and supply. This required a full program of work encompassing people, process and systems.  Engagement with stakeholders was critical for success."
