Hear How P&G Save 100s of Hours with Dynamic Supply Chain Solution
"This is really when KNIME took me to the next level…We could have one meeting to decide what do we do next with this living data rather than deciding how to best compile the data to answer the question again and again and again."
— Brennon Sessions, Senior Scientist, Procter & Gamble
Procter & Gamble is an American multinational consumer goods corporation, originally founded in 1837. The company provides branded consumer packaged goods for Beauty, Healthcare, Fabric & Home Care, Baby, Feminine & Family Care segments.
The P&G team around Brennon Sessions analyzes supply chain data to ensure they can respond quickly to unforeseen events. Given the dynamic nature of their business, they need to get insight fast. Previously, they were using spreadsheets to compile information for analysis. But this was an extremely static approach. Answers to questions today might not be relevant tomorrow. This became even more acute during the pandemic. The lack of consistency and no ability to repeat processes caused major challenges. By the time they had the insight to make decisions about the supply chain, they were already two days late.
KNIME took them to the next level. They were able to compile a consistent global logical supply chain scenario. The KNIME solution integrates data from multiple sources and provides insight based on living data. With quick, automated access to up-to-date insight, the KNIME solution is saving P&G 100s of hours per week.
