In fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) industries, secondary sales (distributor to retailer) data is a critical aspect for forecasting and demand planning. This functionality is also a known whitespace in SAP and typically organizations resort to collecting this data through spreadsheets from the distribution network, downloading primary sales and returns data from SAP ERP and then massaging it with Microsoft Excel pivot tables to generate the relevant reports. However, this takes days and affects the accuracy of their production plan. Arteria solutions for Secondary Sales Data Analysis automate this using a single platform and empower the organization to have accurate secondary sales data and analysis for demand planning. The solutions automate traditional methods of capturing and collation of Distributor/Dealer data (through telephone, emails, excel sheets and flat files) and significantly improve accuracy of capturing external distribution network data such as secondary sales (from distributor to retailer), inventory levels, orders, invoices, returns, capacity and forecast schedules. This enhances logistics and order management decisions by providing seamless integration of external ecosystem data and SAP ERP. The resulting business benefits are extremely cool to business managers.
