Colour Manufacturer Reduces Food Colour Inventory By More Than $6 Million
In the 1990s, Sensient Colors made a series of acquisitions that has since seen the company dominate its market.
However, many of those businesses were kept separate and the siloed operations were starting to cost the company money. Decades on from the original acquisitions, Sensient Colors was suffering from data inaccuracy, poor supply chain visibility and pools of unoptimised inventory. It was time to consolidate systems and streamline sales and operations planning across the business.
Sensient Colors implemented Logility to improve inventory visibility and management. With the digital supply chain platform, the business has created a robust set of new practices and processes to drive marketing intelligence, sales and operations planning (S&OP) and supply decisions.
Logility leverages business intelligence and ERP data to improve planning functions, gain visibility and optimise inventory. Due to the increased visibility, synchronised plans and cross-functional collaboration, Sensient Colors has significantly improved inventory investments and service goals.
Greater visibility, better alignment and more confidence in its data mean Sensient Colors’ supply chain is now in sync.
Since introducing Logility, Sensient Colors was able to reduce its food colour inventory in the United States by more than $6 million.
Thanks to Logility, the business now knows what it has in inventory and where it has it. That knowledge is putting Sensient Colors at a huge advantage in its marketplace.
