When data-driven decision-making is essential, most consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies are searching for ways to leverage artificial intelligence (AI) and decision intelligence effectively. 

The question often arises: Should you outsource AI and decision intelligence capabilities to a consultant or work with a trusted vendor who knows your business intimately? In this blog post, I’ll explore why the latter approach, partnering with a trusted vendor, is the smarter choice.

The current CPG landscape

CPG is a unique industry with specific challenges, market dynamics, and consumer behavior trends. Your organization's success hinges on the ability to navigate these intricacies. A consultant may offer general AI expertise, but they are unlikely to grasp the nuances of your business as well as a trusted vendor who specializes in CPG. 

Here's why this distinction matters:

1. Domain expertise

A trusted vendor who knows your business has domain expertise that extends beyond general AI principles. They are well-versed in CPG-specific challenges, trade promotion management intricacies, and market dynamics. 

This deep industry knowledge enables them to tailor AI solutions to your precise needs and challenges.

2. Tailored solutions

Consultants may provide generic AI solutions that need to be adapted to your industry. In contrast, a trusted vendor can offer tailored AI and decision intelligence solutions that align with your business objectives, product portfolio, and strategic vision. These solutions are designed to address your specific pain points effectively.

3. Strategic Collaboration

When you work with a trusted vendor, you establish a long-term partnership. This partnership encourages collaboration, open communication, and a deep understanding of your organization's goals. A vendor who knows your business can evolve alongside your business, providing solutions that adapt to your changing needs.

4. Transparency and accountability

One of the critical challenges with outsourcing AI to consultants is the potential lack of transparency and accountability. Consultants may provide solutions and move on, leaving you to navigate the complexities of AI implementation and maintenance on your own. 

In contrast, a trusted vendor offers:

  • Transparency: They provide clear insights into their AI methodologies, fostering trust and understanding in the decision-making process.
  • Accountability: A vendor is responsible for the effectiveness of their solutions. They are invested in your success, aligning their goals with your objectives.
  • Strategic alignment: A trusted vendor is more likely to align with your organization's strategic vision. They understand your long-term goals and can design AI solutions that support your overarching business strategies. This alignment ensures that AI and decision intelligence projects are integrated seamlessly into your corporate mission.
