The Outsized Benefits of Analytics Reporting in the Innovation Phase of New Product Development

Posted by Selerant on Dec 18, 2019

Consumer packaged goods companies typically have 400-500 projects or products open at a single point in time. Without the right tools, tracking and visibility across an entire portfolio becomes a constant challenge. 

People have to collect data across multiple siloed departments, from off-line folders, documents, and dashboards, to answer their most pressing questions – Do we have the resources required to support the projects?
