The Challenge

Kantar works with a range of global organisations where customer demands are constantly changing. Previously it was challenging to understand consultant capacity for upcoming work. Senior consultants planned their own time but the central resourcing team needed an overview to fill the gaps and increase billings.

The Solution

Kantar better aligned their sales and delivery teams as they are able to mobilize the right skills and knowledge quickly for clients. Improved workflows during execution helped increase financial performance.
