A Real-Time Cloud EDW
A custom NetSuite integration solution created a robust cloud EDW to identify real-time, historical, and predictive elements of pricing by market, customer, supplier and product and funneled prescriptive actions to Market Managers
The change management plan accelerated tool adoption, action, and ROI tracking.
