Recent studies uniformly show that Selling, General and Administrative (SG&A) as a percentage of net sales continue to significantly increase — both for top and bottom performers in the Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) industry. Market saturation, increased globalization and expensive supply chain operations have placed intense pressure on the margins of CPG companies.
Companies that manage a diversified portfolio of global brands and products thus constantly look for ways to optimize their overheads. Finding feasible solutions to address this issue is often met with challenges — siloed processes across lines of business and geographies, limited operational visibility, lack of standardization and consolidation, and thin implementation of industry best practices. Teaming up with partners experienced in providing an all-encompassing solution results in leaner operations, optimized processes, reduced costs and enhanced customer focus.
