“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."

"GRA quickly understood our supply chain complexities and applied their specific expertise in Supply Chain that I haven’t seen another firm offering. Their consultants are educated, and well experienced in Supply Chain at both the execution and management levels.”
