SCF Extends Success With Oracle’s Demantra In Consumer Goods, Retail Industries
By Anuja Abraham
Supply Chain Fusion (SCF), a consulting firm focused on leading-edge supply chain processes and a Gold level member in Oracle Partner Network (OPN), announced today that it has successfully implemented Oracle’s Demantra at consumer goods / retail companies Beachbody and Skullcandy.
Beachbody is the creator of the nation’s most popular in-home fitness and weight loss solutions. Beachbody selected Supply Chain Fusion to implement Oracle’s Demantra and create a forecast process that was able to keep up with the growth of their business. Following Supply Chain Fusion’s Fast Fusion methodology and leveraging SCF’s accelerators, Beachbody was able to implement Oracle’s Demantra with a global design and updated processes in eight weeks. The solution established common demand planning processes based on leading practices and system capabilities, enabling improved visibility of market channels, demand plans, backlog, bookings, and actual shipments.
Skullcandy develops and distributes headphones and other audio accessories to retailers in the United States and to distributors in various countries worldwide. Skullcandy selected Supply Chain Fusion to perform both a complete business process re-engineering enabled by the implementation of Oracle’s Demantra, and to establish a connected end-to-end forecast process to improve efficiency and reduce cycle time. Oracle’s Demantra was deployed through Oracle On Demand for Skullcandy’s cloud-based SAP ERP system. The solution has enabled them to forecast by category, product and account; and to deliver improvements in forecast accuracy, transparency, and analysis to support their corporate objectives for growth and profitability.
“We are fortunate to have two great clients to work with in Beachbody and Skullcandy,” said Duane Hardacre, Managing Partner of Supply Chain Fusion. “These successes underscore our commitment to helping companies in the consumer goods and retail industries improve their forecasting and planning processes.”
