1 Soley identifies up to 20% of products as portfolio ballast that can be easily eliminated based on orders, customer relevance and common part relationships. Then, the relevant side business is reviewed in the collaborative decision-making process of product management and sales. Conflicting goals can be easily resolved based on facts.

Faster without ballast
Over time, your product portfolio accumulates many product variants, technology alternatives, redundancies and legacy issues. Portfolio ballast is carried by all processes, makes analyses less precise and acts as a brake on future projects. Similar to a cluttered basement, you need to turn on the lights, get an overview and clean out the baggage.
Cut back old braids in the portfolio, free your company from ballast products and complex legacy topics. In this way, you can mobilize scarce resources and capacities for innovation and growth, and simply achieve your goals faster.
With Soley, you can tap into a whole range of relevant quick wins that no company should miss out on.
