Drawing on the experience of our business technology consultants, we bring world-class technological expertise to consumer goods clients.

Technology is transforming the way leading companies run their businesses. In more than 400 technology and operations projects since 2007, we have seen early adopters of advanced technology capture sizable benefits.

What we do

We work with clients to identify and implement effective and robust solutions. Our work often covers topics such as:

  • Enterprise resource planning (ERP). We help consumer goods companies manage the challenges associated with ERP and the implementation and transformation of related systems.
  • Technology in supply chain. In cooperation with our Operations Practice, we help consumer goods companies select and implement the optimal supply chain solutions for their business needs. Learn more on our Operations Practice site.
  • Innovation in technology. We scout the market for new trends and innovations in technology, and we provide criteria to help clients prioritize their investments.
  • Technology enablement. Focusing on the intersection of business and technology, we help our clients leverage IT and e-enablement to drive operational transformation, especially in marketing and sales as well as in operations. We constantly update our skills and our expert networks to help clients stay at the cutting edge of technology.
