Mass Customization

Manage the manufacturing of custom products.
Examples
Case Studies
Designer Products
Perennials & Sutherland
Manage the end-to-end process of manufacturing custom rugs – from quoting custom rug orders, sending renderings to customers for approval, providing samples, coordinating the production of the rug with the factory in India and then running quality control back in the United States.
Food Packaging
Transcontinental
Creating custom packaging solutions for each client from an array of choices was very difficult to manage. In the absence of a robust work management system that supports mass customization projects, templates were copied and customized for each unique order. This is a time-consuming, error-prone way to accomplish the goal.

Internal Operations

Manage complex, time-sensitive internal processes
Examples
Case Studies
Vendor SKU Management
Home Depot
For the largest home improvement retailer in the United States, supplying tools, construction products, and services, the challenge was to manage the flow of processes related to the management of vendor SKUs, options, process changes, catalog maintenance, etc.
Franchise Onboarding
