EY expands supply chain alliance with P&G

EY expands supply chain alliance with P&G

Date: 11 August 2020

EY announced the expansion of its alliance with Procter & Gamble (P&G) in a bid to transform and build supply chain resilience during and beyond the Covid-19 pandemic.

Expanding the relationship to additional supply chain processes

The expanded alliance will provide a wide range of supply chain capabilities which are designed to address businesses' unprecedented challenges and market disruption as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition, the scope of the relationship has been extended to additional supply chain processes, including strategy, planning, customer service, transportation and distribution to help accelerate transformation and risk in the supply chain.

The alliance covers a broad suite of intellectual property (IP) combined with a proven transformation methodology. It includes:

  • Supply chain foundations, which provide core foundations for supply network operations and processes, including organisational design and foundational work processes and tools.
  • Advanced tools and automation, which offer innovative resources and techniques designed to enhance and digitise existing work processes to improve efficiencies.
  • The Run-to-Target Transformation Accelerator to provide a structured self-service methodology to achieve rapid results and create sustainable change by empowering the workforce.

Alignment across the business

This approach helps align multiple areas of the business – supply chain, finance, sales, commercial – against common transformation objectives, which enables increased involvement with customers and suppliers to create critical end-to-end visibility.

Leveraging EY and P&G assets

Alongside a structured implementation methodology, the leveraging of EY and P&G assets allows businesses to accelerate deployment and build organizational capability. This approach also operates seamlessly alongside the EY Supply Chain Intelligence Platform and Supply Chain Smart Maps™ — a set of digital tools, data and analytics to help manage and analyze ongoing performance throughout the transformation of the supply chain.

 Addressing the full scope of the supply chain

Glenn Steinberg, EY Global and EY Americas Supply Chain Leader, commented: “With P&G’s consistent leadership in supply chain excellence, expanding the relationship with EY to address the full scope of the supply chain is essential – especially during times when supply chains are under stress and companies are working to reframe their future. The expanded alliance can provide clients with the advanced technology, guidance and systems they need today and in the future. Its offerings provide a holistic approach for businesses globally to manage and transform supply chain processes in today’s unpredictable environment.”

Meanwhile, Julio Nemeth, Chief Product Supply Officer, P&G, said: “P&G and EY have a long history of working together and collaborating exceptionally well. Both organizations have a culture of quality and high standards and share very similar values and principles. EY is the ideal organization to bring our supply chain knowledge and the related success to the marketplace. Our methodology has been used throughout our supply network – from suppliers to customers – to deliver substantial value in the form of cash, cost and revenue. It can deliver increased responsiveness, productivity, service levels, inventory reduction and cost savings. Therefore, it offers a valuable and structured approach for businesses to optimize their end-to-end supply chain performance.”
