Prior to using Modus Planning's cloud-based platform, Beyond Better Foods faced trade issues related to the deep fragmentation of their overall process. Rather than an integrated system to manage, Beyond Better Foods used many diverse spreadsheets to plan every aspect of trade, which created many isolated realities versus one cohesive plan for the company. This disorganization led to missed opportunities and frustration as the company continued to grow at a breakneck pace.
Jen stated that "post-Modus, everything lives in the same place... really we pull everything out of Modus." Using Modus turned Beyond Better Foods into a streamlined, focused, and communicative CPG powerhouse. From trade promotion to distribution and financial forecasts, along with every aspect in between, Modus Planning provides one centralized system to evaluate each part of the business. This allows employees to better understand the bigger picture and how one aspect impacts another.
"Prior to using Modus Planning, we were just constantly course correcting and fixing things versus moving forward."
