Pittsburgh, PA, United States, 2011/10/12 - Plan4Demand, a premiere supply chain management consulting firm, launched a new services unit called Pros2Plan, which will address the immediate staffing needs of the market in a cost-effective and rapid approach.
Plan4Demand will continue to provide strategic supply chain management consulting solutions in the area of Demand Management, Sales & Operations Planning, Cost-to-Produce and Cost-to-Serve in the fast moving CPG and food & beverage markets.
Pros2Plan will provide resourcing solutions to a wider scope of markets in a cost-effective staff augmentation model opening the opportunity for clients to hire skilled talent in a full-time capacity to build out their internal teams worldwide.
“While 14 million people are out of work in the U.S., there is still a skilled labor gap. These roles generally require experience in the industry, domain knowledge in the process area and solid hands-on skills in advanced technologies. These roles also require an affinity for the art of the business and the science of logic-based techniques using sophisticated technology solutions” said Lisa Kustra, CEO of Plan4Demand. "After experiencing success in the strategic market, we look forward to partnering with businesses to help with their tactical needs in the most cost effective way. Now, our clients can reap the benefits of our 10+ years in recruiting this type of talent that our professional recruitment force brings to the table. We launched Pros2Plan for several reasons. The main reason is that our customer base struggles to find these hard-to-find skilled people. In addition, this skill set can be applied to other areas of the enterprise such as financial modeling, trade promotion and category/space management, procurement and logistics, as well as information technology solution experts. It applies to roles that require both deep industry process knowledge and technology experience to do the job well. “
Debbie Rose, Pros2Plan Services Director and Founding member of Plan4Demand, said “Our focus will be to help our customers fill gaps on strategic projects and handle tactical business initiatives where the solution is a resource and not a strategic consulting solution. Along the way we also hope to help customers build their internal team of talent which will drive innovation and the need for consulting help down the road. It’s a win/win for everyone”
Armed with a unique staffing approach and superior leadership, Pros2Plan has developed a portfolio which includes both local and national clients and after launching just under 90 days ago, the Pros2Plan services team has already acquired several new Fortune 1000 accounts.
