Healthcare giant overcomes merger in 2015Consumer Products

The image of a company is very important. Would you want to work with a consultation company whose office was in shambles? We judge things often by their appearance, especially when seeing something for the first time. If you are an excellent company with a bad image or appearance then you may have loyal clients but new clients will be hard to get.

What does work, however, is the ability to present the company as being professional and experienced. When we walk into an office that is neatly arranged and greatly designed we immediately begin to think positively about the company.

The challenge is to bring a company whose web presence is boring up to date. The challenge is to ensure that when a client visits your website they feel positive about your company. The challenge is that most customers will judge you based on appearance alone, and if your website looks unprofessional or poorly made then they will think your company as a whole is unprofessional. Each and every part of the organization matters when winning over a new client:

  • Improve sales and operations and production planning:

    The teams focused their efforts on a few of the highest-value S&OP levers in order to review the current planning process, identify gaps in the planning infrastructure and analytically understand demand and supply variability.

  • Determine the right inventory level:

    With hundreds of medications in the market, Pharm Ltd. needed a proper method to predict and manage their inventory. Using a mean absolute percentage analysis (MAPE), the teams defined appropriate levels for raw materials and finished products by mapping actual versus forecasted sales on the most important SKUs.

  • Optimize the supply chain for perfect order planning:

    The diagnostic determined the stressors that affected sales and service levels. The teams focused on resolving issues related to higher-than-normal back-orders and lead times, which stressed the entire supply chain and led to delays in medications reaching consumers.

Le 14 mars dernier, à l’invitation du professeur Van Son Lai, gestionnaire du Fonds Conrad-Leblanc et co-directeur du LABIFUL, FSA ULaval recevait Mme Mary Hardy, professeure en gestion des risques de l’Université de Waterloo, et M. Phelim Boyle, professeur en finance à la School of Business and Economics de l’Université Wilfrid-Laurier, également à Waterloo, en Ontario. Plus de 80 personnes étaient venus entendre ces deux sommités dans leur domaine. Parmi eux, 25 actuaires, plusieurs gens d’affaires (AMF, Desjardins, Industrielle Alliance, Agri-Marché, KPMG, Deloitte, SSQ, Morneau Shepell, etc.), professeurs et étudiants de FSA ULaval, de l’École d’actuariat et du Département d’économique ont participé aux discussions et partagé leurs réflexions.

  • Fellow de la Society of Actuaries et de l’Institute of Actuaries, et Chartered Enterprise Risk Analyst, Mme Hardy présentait de façon vulgarisée quelques résultats de recherche sur les risques et les avantages de trois modèles hybrides de fonds de retraite, le Cash Balance, le Floor Offset et le Target Benefit. Le but de la présentation était d’évaluer les risques potentiels de chacun et la façon de gérer ces risques afin de réduire les problèmes.
  • La conférence de M. Phelim Boyle portait, quant à elle, sur les modèles d’assurance hypothécaire. Fellow de l’Institute of Actuaries et du Canadian Institute of Actuaries, récipiendaire du 2005 Sungard/IAFE Financial Engineer of the Year Award et de la Centennial Gold Medal de l’International Actuarial Association, M Boyle a abordé l’assurance hypothécaire, la structure de marché, les modèles de contrat, les risques moraux et la gestion des risques, tout en rappelant l’importance d’une gestion prudente des risques et des leçons de la récente crise.

Cette journée a été rendue possible grâce à de nombreux partenaires : le Département de finance, assurance et immobilier, la Chaire d’assurance et de services financiers L’Industrielle-Alliance, la Chaire Groupe Investors en planification financière, la Chaire RBC en innovations financières, l’École de comptabilité, l’École d’actuariat, le LABIFUL et les salles des marchés Carmand-Normand et Jean-Turmel.
