Protect Profits from Commodity Fluctuations (qSync)
Mareana qSync™ predicts the impact of price fluctuations, supplier changes, shipping rerouting and more – using multiple advanced predictive models. Through data visualization, supply chain professionals optimize production based on disparate input costs across global portfolio and reduce risk by enhancing view of international supply chain costs
Reduce Inventory and Distribution Costs
In manufacturing, making trade-offs between availability and carrying costs are a part of life. As global supply chains become increasingly fragmented due to the use of both in-house and outsourced distribution, making these trade-offs is getting harder. Ongoing stock-outs were a problem for one Mareana client, with no apparent cause. Within 8 weeks, Mareana's team, using qSync, identified and solved the problem: an inconsistent set of data standards which was obscuring true inventory levels.
By creating a global inventory view, and consolidating the data from the entire supply chain, the procurement team was able to hunt down global variances by plant, commodity, or supplier. As a result, this manufacturer reduced inventories by 10% and dramatically reduced product stock-outs.
Increase Sales with Product Recommendations
Every company wants to sell more to its existing customers with recommendation engines, but a complex industry like medical devices presents unique challenges to most off-the-shelf technology solutions due to the need to integrate many kinds of data sources—from design drawings to Medicare data. For one global medical devices manufacturer, the Mareana team used qFind to digitize thousands of SKUs from mixed quality sources, then created a custom product recommendation engine.
With a new easy-to-search portal that can now access previously hidden files, images, and data, this company improved sales within one quarter. Sales and support teams are now equipped to suggest new products and prioritize sales opportunities for new customers based on prior successes. They can also easily identify substitutes during stock-outs, and instantly answer complex customer inquiries, including those requiring competitor product data.
Unstructured Data Migration for PLM (qFind)
Mareana assists companies with complex Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) data migration by expeditiously digitizing data from structured and unstructured sources such as bill of materials (BOM), regulated ingredient lists, regulated labels, engineering drawings, analytical test standards, and printed sales and marketing materials. Companies experience faster innovation time via improved product portfolio management, data governance, and product lifecycle costing.
