Protect your brand and increase profitability by streamlining your go-to-market process.

Creative Workflow Management for Consumer Packaged Goods

CPG brands are facing increasing volume, velocity, and variety of marketing assets demanded.

Companies that sell consumer packaged goods (CPG) have to constantly develop new products and get them into the hands of consumers at a regular rate. These products include non-durable goods such as food, toiletries, and other consumables. Because CPGs have generally short lifespans, that means the cycle of ideation to production is quick and involves people from a variety of roles all moving quickly together.

Agility is Key

As big brands navigate the shift in growth models from market saturation to an entirely different kind of immersive approach in the digital age, agility is a necessity. Yet that’s one of the biggest stumbling blocks faced by big brands.

Internal processes can – and do – hold back your ability to scale.

The way your teams communicate, collaborate, and execute determines how agile your enterprise will be. If they depend on tools designed in the past for use in the past (and by past we literally mean yesterday), that agility is going to be limited.

Outdated Workflow Management Systems Hamper Agility

Most legacy workflow management tools were designed strictly as organizational tools without the capacity for collaboration, real-time communication, or visibility across teams. What’s more, integration with other technologies is piecemeal or outright impossible. Bolt-on solutions only go so far in adding flexibility to tools that are built to stay rigid, adding complexity to an already unwieldy set of processes. Changes, no matter how small, mean calling in the IT department.

A Better (and Modern) Approach to Workflow Management

Modern workflow management tools should be built on platforms that are flexible and infinitely scalable. Automation and AI/machine learning should add adaptability, speed, and accuracy to every process. This enables fast, intuitive searching and organization, visibility across all silos – while tagging new versions of assets automatically and automating the tedium of merging and purging duplicates.

Each user should see only the information that’s relevant to them. Data should be organized in different ways for different needs; users should be able to search for exactly what they need, and find it quickly. The ideal workflow tools should be where teams can start, collaborate, and complete projects. In a word: agile
