Leading Consumer Products Firm Deploys BI Solution for Competitive Advantage
Kimberly-Clark, touching over 1.3 billion consumers on a daily basis, recognized the need for a toolset to measure performance in their global manufacturing and supply chain management. The company selected the Microsoft Business Intelligence ™ (BI) solutions for their functionality and ease of use. Kimberly-Clark was able to consolidate disparate reporting solutions across their manufacturing facilities into a single central system. For one major customer, in a supply chain application, the company realized ten million dollars of enhanced revenues that they would have otherwise lost. Kimberly-Clark has started to transform their business from a model of IT people doing data manipulation at the request of the business, to the business having the ability to do their own analysis and thereby reducing the time in getting new business information in front of the leadership to make decisions.
