Multiple tools and siloed data

  • Employees and managers across the PepsiCo team were using a variety of platforms, tools and solutions to both execute and document their work. Sharing data between teams and leaders became increasingly challenging, especially with most team members having limited access to each other’s preferred solution. In addition, the consolidation of data required a considerable amount of manual work.

Difficulty measuring workloads and planning resources
