Manufacturing digital supply chains are at a tipping point. On one side is efficiency. On the other, resilience. However, these two concepts are often in conflict. If current events have shown us anything, it’s that neither choice is correct. The way forward is a delicate balance of both.

Now is the time for manufacturers to forge new paths without risking what they have invested enormous efforts into building. But, how do you take that first step toward change when there is no standard playbook for what’s next? When the only certainty is change.

We believe the best transformation starts small. Targeted decisions can strengthen your existing position, empower your workforce, and drive lasting organizational change.

More than half of the 15 top manufacturers in the world trust Cognizant.

CASE STUDY

Digital supply chain customer spotlight

THE CHALLENGE

A global agriculture corporation wanted to improve service

The organization needed an end-to-end solution which would improve service while also reducing cost and cycle time. The solution also needed to be scalable globally and to leverage their existing resources whenever possible.

They needed a connected, automated supply chain.

COGNIZANT'S SOLUTION

Recommendations, Automations, and Frameworks

We recommended a center of excellence approach to ensure employee adoption and enable prioritization. We built automation and created a framework for non-IT teams to contribute ideas.


THE RESULTS

4x ROI

We created intelligent process automation that streamlined largely manual and fragmented order fulfillment, financial reporting, and customer care processes. 

The organization achieved $20 million in savings, over 90% process improvement, and a 4X return on investment.
