With increasing complexities in the retail-CPG industry, it has become crucial for companies to analyze their category management strategies. One of our clients, a leading CPG company in Europe, was facing difficulties in achieving their desired category growth. They wanted to identify key value categories (KVCs) and key value items (KVIs) to optimize pricing and improve profitability. While analyzing product categories, they also wanted to increase their sales volume.
The category management services offered by our experts helped the client to develop a robust category management strategy and identify 50 KVCs that accounted for more than 50% of the client’s total sales. Additionally, the improved category management process helped the client to analyze transaction data, determine the frequency of purchase, calculate the price awareness score, and improve profit margins by 11%.
Improving brand awareness and driving business growth has always been a challenge for companies in the food and beverage category. A renowned food and beverage brand was facing increasing pressure to reduce costs in the wake of a declining economic landscape. They wanted to centralize all their sourcing and procurement operations to gauge new procurement cost management opportunities.
To help the client address such challenges, our experts developed a robust category management strategy to fully leverage their purchasing decisions by focusing on the external supply market. They focused on buying-channel optimization to monitor contract utilization and compliance. This helped the client to proactively manage the procurement expenditure and reduce organizational spend.
The fashion retail industry poses a plethora of challenges for category managers when it comes to driving profitability through different categories. The client, an American multinational retail-clothing firm decided to leverage our expertise to address declining profit margins. They wanted a structured approach to manage different categories and distinct areas of expenditure.
