This healthcare organization is one of the global leaders in developing and delivering feed and medicines for both farm animals and companion animals through bold vision and cutting-edge scientific innovation.

Business Challenge

The national and global sales performance of animal health products classes is consolidated through CEESA (an international non-profit organization) International Sales Survey (CISS). CEESA members track and review their national and global sales performance in animal health product classes and species against all other participating companies.

The animal healthcare leader, a CEESA member, was not satisfied with the efficiency of data delivery to CEESA. Additionally, the insights from CEESA reports were obtained too slowly, were not precise enough, and impacted business decision-making. 

Key challenges

  • The process of data collection is cumbersome, and the code run-time for pre-processing has increased from 12 hours to 16-24 hours.
  • Manual tasks like data quality checks done in Excel and SQL queries make the process complex.
  • The current legacy system had 21 processes that were manual and prone to errors. 
  • Inefficient logging system that requires humungous effort to identify the root cause of failure. 
  • Since processes are executed sequentially, performance wasn’t adequate and impacted sales estimation reports and eventually the customer experience
  • Managing and maintaining reports, delay in report delivery to business users was delaying critical business decisions

WinWire Solution
