CPG companies need to serve diverse consumer needs around the world while running in a more cost-efficient way that adds more value back to the business. To help consumer goods CEOs, CFOs and COOs, Accenture:
Strategically manages cost in a closed-loop manner: Provides visibility into spend across the company—regions, business units and categories—then cuts costs in a smart way by removing spend that is duplicative or does not add value to the business.
Develops a fit-for-purpose operating model: Designs a Global Business Services (GBS) unit that provides front- and back-office services to the business in a highly integrated, efficient and flexible way, enabling all other units to work better.
Drives process excellence: Defines which processes to run through the clients’ GBS unit, puts best-practice processes in place, tackling process definition from the end customer all the way back, and offers low-cost sourcing models to run the processes.
The Accenture differentiation is the integration of these three components, which delivers incremental value compared to the stand-alone elements, making our approach sustainable and driving continuous improvement. And we do not stop at operational efficiency, but continue by guiding clients to reinvest these savings into initiatives that increase competitiveness and drive growth.
