What our clients are saying

"Using SCOOP I got fact-based analysis, which has quickly given me information that I can trust."

Chief Operating Officer 

Global Cosmetics Manufacturer

Problem: Our client wanted to diagnose current warehouse operations and identify opportunities to free up their working capital.

Solution: We deployed two of the SCOOP apps to extract a large amount of transactional data from the client’s SAP system and conducted a thorough analysis to understand their sales patterns and optimise their inventory levels.

Impact:  A total of over £10m inventory saving opportunity was identified and validated. This resulted in the equivalent of over 300k cases of inventory approx. 10% of existing inventory space.

UK Non-Food Retailer


Problem: Our client lacked the analytics capability to bring big data sets together. They were also facing  pressure to free up more working capital and improve inventory performance. We were asked to create a customised app as an ongoing (weekly) operational tool.

Solution: We deployed SCOOP  in two phases; first as a diagnostic tool, then, as an operational opportunity identification and harvesting tool. We used two SCOOP apps (Inventory and Cost to Serve) to identify working capital saving opportunities and the associated levers. We customised existing SCOOP apps to answer our client's specific questions around operational working capital reduction and hosted this custom-created SCOOP app on our cloud platform for the client as an ongoing managed service.

Impact: 29.6% stock reduction opportunity was identified by SCOOP.

Global Hospitality Chain


Problem: Our client wanted to simulate future state supply chain networks
to establish the most cost efficient strategy.

Solution: We built end-to-end baseline enabling the client to trace their supply network right from sourcing all the way to customer markets. We helped them to optimise their delivery routes, by comparing across networks to understand the best future options.

Impact: The outcome has helped our client tender for a new third party logistics provider and capitalise on the £12m distribution cost savings that were identified by the analysis.
