True to the company history of innovation and the search for perfection, MONIN Gourmet Flavorings knew they needed a better way to harness company data than their current reporting system. As it was, reporting services were limited, time consuming, expensive, and prone to human error. Every month, MONIN employees would spend weeks pulling data, sending that data to external reporting consultants, and waiting for results. By the time reports hit decision makers’ desks, data was already a month old.

Because data was old and only available once a month, employees could only look back on what they had done. They lacked critical insight for analysis and had no way to better prepare for the future.
Considering they were paying tens of thousands of dollars a year for their current system, executives knew there had to be a better way to get the data they needed when they needed it. MONIN was increasingly expanding their digital footprint and needed an analytics partner that would seamlessly integrate not only multiple internal data sources, but also external data such as weather and commodities pricing, which could affect their global business. That’s when they found TARGIT Decision Suite.

A cultural shift towards analytics

“We’re increasingly driving towards a digital business in today’s world, and analytics is the center of it all,” says Todd Cummings, VP of Information Technology at MONIN Gourmet Flavorings. “We are putting energy into building our culture around that. We’re looking at how to do things differently. We’re building the system that feeds analytics.”

When MONIN first implemented TARGIT’s business analytics for manufacturing solution into the company strategy, they knew they were embarking on a journey to data-driven excellence. And today, they are well on their way, building up best practices and pulling departments into the overall analytics strategy one by one.
