Financial and Inventory Data Analysis at Post Holdings

Challenge

Post Holdings is a consumer packaged goods holding company. With 10 multi-billion dollar acquisitions in the last 5 years, Post’s Decision Science group is facing a complicated task of merging data from different sources and reporting platforms and enabling senior management, operating companies and regulators to make sense of the flood of data.

Solution

Vizable Insights collaborated with the Decision Science team at Post Holdings to develop effective Tableau dashboards tracking accounts payable, accounts receivable, and cash flow. We also developed several what-if financial analyses yielding actionable results. One of these models identified potential savings of almost 70 million dollars annually across the whole organization.

In addition to Tableau dashboard building, we also developed a Tableau course for the team of one of the operating companies, complete with Tableau manual and exercises based on their own data. The materials we developed were a base of a 3 day course we delivered on site.

 

George is an excellent consultant who worked diligently to deliver exceptional data visualization solutions and Tableau training for Post Holdings. His openness to feedback and willingness to take the time to understand our business made him an incredible asset whom my colleagues and I had great confidence in. Personally, I found working with George to be a fantastic experience as he was very professional, easy to communicate with, reliable, and always enthusiastic about our projects. He demonstrated a willingness to go the extra mile and exceeded our expectations by not only delivering elegant and effective Tableau dashboards, but also contributing to the development of a better data culture at Post Holdings. I would highly recommend George and Vizable Insights.
