Analytics gives us time to understand and challenge the numbers, instead of just crunching them.

Kesnel Leblanc, Director of Financial Reporting, Kruger Inc.

Business Challenge story

As Kruger embarked on a project to enhance budgeting and forecasting in its containerboard division, it realized that analytics could also help to drive operational efficiencies for the business.


In addition to a new, more efficient forecasting process, Kruger has developed an order booking analysis tool, which enables closer coordination between sales and manufacturing teams.


Better forecasting improves raw materials planning and cost control, while the booking tool helps to optimize production scheduling and machine utilization, reducing lead times for customers’ orders.
