Manufacturing & Distribution

Control & Efficiency
Well Beyond the Spreadsheet
From developing strategy to realizing results, we can assist with expansion into new channels, establishing successful alliances, evaluating potential M&A activity, transforming operations and implementing effective technologies.
Need for Green or Need for Speed
54% of consumers surveyed are willing to pay 5% more and 76% would wait one extra day for climate-friendly transport.
If even the smallest process improvements can yield enormous returns, then why are so many manufacturers and distributors still using spreadsheets and estimates to manage their operations? It’s time to push beyond “best guesses” and implement custom processes and software solutions to produce, move and promote your products with far greater control and efficiency. We can help.

The heart of our practice is harmonizing people, process and technology. We excel at helping companies streamline their supply chain, improve workforce productivity and optimize trade promotions. Do these well, and profitable growth will follow.

We find the best way to optimize efficiency is to conduct an operational assessment and use the findings to chart a clear path toward significant increases in performance.
Supply Chain Management
Optimizing your supply chain can produce substantial performance benefits across the organization – from lower costs to higher customer satisfaction. With a wealth of experience in creating value by fine-tuning the supply chain, West Monroe Partners is the firm that can help you unlock the value in your supply chain.
Trade Promotion Management
Transforming trade promotion programs is a journey.  We leverage more than 35 years of consumer packaged goods experience, a proprietary software selection methodology, our internal center of excellence and technical abilities to help you through that journey - from strategy visioning through implementation and beyond.
Workforce Optimization
Growing shortages in skilled labor coupled with increased customer demands mean that companies today need to do more with less. They need a high-performing workforce – a workforce focused on productivity, efficiency and customer satisfaction across all of their operations. Is your workforce up for the challenge?
