Many well-known industrial companies already rely on our software solution. When do you start?

PRODUCT PORTFOLIO WORKFLOWS

ImpactAnalysis2Element-2-min

Creating transparency: Potentials, risks and hot spots at a glance

Soley classifies your entire product portfolio into core business, ancillary business and portfolio ballast. Complexity Patterns reveal hidden potentials and risks in the portfolio.

This is where the systematic processing of strengths and weaknesses of your product portfolio begins.

Consistently eliminate portfolio ballast

Soley calculates the cost-benefit balance of all products based on sales development, exclusive parts, suppliers and shopping cart relationships.

With Soley, you identify portfolio ballast and accelerate product phase-out. Target conflicts between product management and sales are resolved collaboratively and fact-based and documented transparently.

Portfolio structuring - preferred products

Soley extends the typical ABC-XYZ analysis and additionally examines internal platform synergies. This results in a clear division into preferred products, extended products and special products, each with a different price point and delivery availability.

Preferred products with high delivery availability help to survive in volatile growth markets and enable high economies of scale in purchasing and manufacturing.

Make-or-Buy Decisions

Large product variety means continuously re-evaluating make-or-buy decisions in order to use scarce internal resources in the most value-adding way possible and to strengthen core competencies within the company.

With Soley, you stay in control of high-revenue products with high relevance for your enterprise and recognize which products are better procured externally to avoid unnecessary complexity.
