RSM US Bolsters Suppliers With Data Solutions
CHICAGO, IL - In a world as fast-paced as ours, being able to filter through what is happening inside and outside your organization is an integral skill. Operators across the industry are faced with this challenge, and RSM US is here to help. The company primarily works with suppliers in order to implement technology and services that will drive efficiency through connecting data.
“We've been focused on the food and beverage industry for 20 years now, working with different clients to accomplish goals ranging from increased food safety over collaboration to more recently, data and cyber security solutions,” said Consulting Principal Christian Winzeler. “One large aspect of what we focus on is bringing technology into organizations, allowing systems to track and manage transactions throughout different processes. On the consulting side, we work with companies to optimize their operations or develop their strategies around technologies from reporting platforms to the ever-present block chain.”
Christian explained to me that companies need a framework to focus on the pieces of information that are critical to making supply chain decisions. Many of RSM’s clients have too much data to make sense of, so the company’s main goal is to help them gather what is most important and apply it to their growth strategy by utilizing technology.
“A lot of suppliers don't have these systems in place yet, so we can help them get a more fact-based understanding of what is going on. It’s important to have an understanding of what you need to look at, but also being able to take a piece of data, correlate it with the rest, and make a plan,” Christian continued.
Significant changes in demand have put many food industry operators into a unique position where they're overwhelmed with managing both buy- and supply-side operations. RSM promotes the use of diverse data in order to make educated decisions based on facts. As the trend toward having a better understanding of where food comes from continues to get wider and wider, companies are introducing new opportunities to capture sales.
There is a lot to consider when it comes to making the best decision for your business, and RSM may just be the resource you need to reach that next level. Stick with us as we at ANUK continue to bring you the latest across the supply chain.
