International food and beverage company, Hero, was faced with the challenge as to whether they should upgrade their heterogenous ERP landscape. With BearingPoint’s support Hero gained a clear vision of how to approach the future with insight and confidence.
The BearingPoint Supply Chain Vulnerability Framework enables organisations to identify risks and opportunities within their supply chains on the premise that being forewarned is being forearmed, and therefore actions can be taken. We have taken our framework and flipped it on its head – the risks are now issues.
