With our support, the organization now has a clear picture of the opportunities and problems it faces.
The first four in-country teams we worked with identified over 100 problems related to manual ways of working, limited system capabilities, and a lack of reported analytics. We helped these teams prioritize 37 problems and identify 125 potential solutions.
The process revealed further insights, such as the huge number of working days that were being lost to the biggest workflow issues. Or how an existing global SAP rollout wouldn’t solve these problems. Plus new ways that regulatory challenges were affecting the business.
Product Innovation also allowed them to quickly address these issues. For example, after identifying compliance problems in the UK the team was able to prioritize rolling out an automation solution. This alone saved 50 days a year and secured £10 Million in cashflow.
Small-scale experiments also revealed that previous plans for a data and analytics solution would be ineffective. As a result, the work was stopped. This saved more than £10,000 a year in cancelled software licenses and £20,000 a year in consultancy costs.
