The speed at which dietary supplements companies bring new products to market makes or breaks brands. Shifting regulations, tighter restrictions, evolving consumer preferences, and disrupted supply chains have made it harder for companies to innovate. There are now more consumer-driven product criteria and compliance requirements to track globally than ever before. And the enormous amount of data and information required for formula and recipe development is in silos, spanning ERP and PLM systems and static tools like shared drives and spreadsheets, with as much as 80% of a company's supply chain information living with suppliers.
