Specifically Chateaux’s work in the areas of Trade Promotion Management, Demand Planning and integration of syndicated data has helped us realize our implementation of Advanced Sales and Operations Planning and brought substantial benefit to the company. Moreover, all of the people I know from Chateaux, from the CEO Ken Zimmerman through their implementation specialists, have been consummate professionals and very easy to do business with.
