Walgreens Boots Alliance Selects E2open to Support its Global Supply Chain
E2open announced today that Walgreens Boots Alliance, the largest retail pharmacy, health and daily living destination across the USA and Europe, has selected E2open to enable Sales & Operations Planning for its Global Brands supply chain.

Walgreens Boots Alliance was created through the combination of Walgreens and Alliance Boots in December 2014. This transaction brought together two leading companies with iconic brands, complementary geographic footprints, shared values and a heritage of trusted healthcare services through pharmaceutical wholesaling and community pharmacy care, dating back more than 100 years. As a cross-divisional function of Walgreens Boots Alliance, Global Brands aims to give WBA retail businesses as well as global partners a sustainable competitive advantage by combining great brands and innovative products with unparalleled commercial expertise and consumer insight. Products in the Global Brands portfolio include Boots Soltan, No7, Well at Walgreens, Soap & Glory, Liz Earle and Boots Pharmaceuticals.

After an extensive search, Walgreens Boots Alliance selected E2open Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) solutions including Demand Planning, Supply Planning, Inventory Optimization, Supplier Collaboration, and Sales & Operations Planning to help address these challenges.

“Because Walgreens Boots Alliance has grown through mergers and acquisitions, we have tremendous opportunity to improve our supply chain performance through standardized processes and next-generation technologies,” said Karl Graham, Vice President and Director of Global Sourcing & Global Brands Supply, Walgreens Boots Alliance. “E2open’s solutions will be a critical component of our transformation to a seamlessly integrated organization that’s well positioned for further growth.”

“The partnership with Walgreens Boots Alliance represents the full breadth of E2open’s capabilities from understanding demand, translating accurate demand signals to a more accurate production plan, adjusting the production plan in real time, and finally connecting the production plan to both outsourced and insourced manufactures. Connecting all aspects of the supply chain will allow Walgreens Boots Alliance to operate their end-to-end supply chain in real time,” said Michael Farlekas, CEO of E2open. “Walgreen Boots Alliance faces unique challenges as both a manufacturer and a retailer. E2open’s global network and solutions will help WBA synchronize critical sales, production and financial plans to better anticipate and respond to changing global conditions.”
