Creating a roadmap for growth, KeHE Distributors recently announced its latest strategic launch to support its supplier community. The proprietary business intelligence tool, KeHE CONNECT BI™, is a suite of tools created to enhance the current reporting and provide new capabilities to better serve the company’s suppliers and, indirectly, retailers throughout the nation.
“We are excited to introduce the new value-added digital tools to our supplier community,” said Scott Weber, Executive Vice President of Commercial and Merchandising. “By offering data-driven insights through our platform, we not only give suppliers a transparent view of their performance data at KeHE, but with layered in insights from our industry experts, we also provide turnkey solutions to support each supplier’s individualized goals and growth. Our goal is to help our suppliers gain an advantage in the marketplace and make data informed decisions by accessing information in a clear, affordable, and accessible program.”
According to a press release, the platform enables and facilitates sales growth, reduces administrative costs, improves efficiency, and provides transparency with a clear digital interface. The new suite of data services provides best-in-class sales reporting, business analytics, and data visualization in one connected platform.
This means that suppliers can make more informed data-driven business decisions. The bottom line? Companies can work toward new growth strategies through sales and financial summaries, inventory status updates, fill rates, and gap and void analyses. They can also answer business questions and provide actionable insights.
A spokesperson from Serenity Kids, a KeHE supplier partner, shared, “I appreciate that KeHE is constantly trying to improve its UI [User Interface] and reporting to manufacturers. As we grow as a company, there’s definitely an opportunity to take advantage of this data and I’m grateful that KeHE provides this level of visibility.”
KeHE CONNECT BI is now available to the company’s suppliers.
