Business Excellence covers several disciplines within the areas of Strategy, Processes, Data Intelligence and Portfolio Management:
We work to ensure the execution of our strategy plans by structuring and driving the process with continuous follow-up with Executive Management and throughout the corporate organization. Our strategic management tools help us define and track our strategic targets and initiatives.
Processes and Data Intelligence
In terms of processes, our aim is to increase the commercial value of our back-office resources and to assist commercial functions to achieve a higher level of excellence. This implies identifying needs for guidelines and processes across departments as well as ensuring a link to our strategic goals. We constantly evaluate how to develop our current systems to find ways of maximizing value and ensure our business develops in a profitable direction. Data Intelligence is used to understand our business better and to ensure we are taking fact-based decisions.
Portfolio Management and Product Information Management (PIM)
Our portfolio of products is the basis of our business and the key to delivering on market-driven food solutions. In cooperation with regions and procurement, the portfolio is regularly evaluated to ensure profitability and market relevance. This involves follow-up on launches and decisions on closing down or lifting low performance products, obtaining further synergies or economies of scale. Master Data is a single source of common business data used across multiple systems, applications and processes. At Uhrenholt, our product master data resides in our Product Information Management (PIM) system, which in turn feeds our essential operating tools; the on-premises ERP system AX and the web-based Product Portal. The Product Portal gives a clear overview of item labelling and which items or variants are intended for which markets. This is an essential service to staff throughout the organization to ensure that they have correct information at hand and can perform at their best.
