"Most of our facilities weren’t quite ready for SAP, but did require more sophistication and consistency than Excel spreadsheets could provide. Ultimately, we needed to connect key people and processes, all under PepsiCo’s best practices – which many commercially available software tools struggled to support."

"The custom PCA solution provided transparency to the entire supply chain planning process across EMEA. Now everyone can report our numbers and forecasts in one central location, and operate under PepsiCo’s best practices and consistent performance metrics. Life has been made much easier."

PCA delivered an initial prototype design in just three weeks, to deployment nine months later. We are thrilled with the service and the final results.."
