You also buy 5-10 flavors in small 500g order quantities for a total of 10kg a year. How to access the right information and documentation? What flavor to select for a new product line, a new formulation? What about accessing distributors or flavor houses directly? Are you paying the right price?
Join iSense, access a wealth of flavors specified for their taste, select the right flavor online and request samples with a single click directly from manufacturers or their key regional distributors.
Optimize your cost, accelerate your product development, limit complexity.
Your procurement department buys over 50 flavors to feed your 4 industrial sites. Every quarter, you need to review new flavors to support innovation. You are not sure about what to buy, how to compare these flavors and why you need new flavors.
R&D copes with 10 new flavor submissions for each new development, from 4 flavor houses! Why those particular flavors and how to quickly cut through to the right 2 or 3? Do you have flavors in your existing collection that could do the job?
iSense can help both functions: ask your flavor houses to join iSense and specify the taste of their flavors: this enables comparison, benchmarking, easy data maintenance and the ability to search for the right flavors.The result? Procurement keeps costs in check and avoids unnecessary bloating of flavor stocks. R&D selects flavors based on data and builds up your company knowledge -all in one place.
Build the data and insight needed to support consumer-centric product development.Your challenges?
Over 500 flavors to source and a number that grows constantly. Quality, contingency, internal and external collaboration, agility…all topics at the top of your agenda. How to better leverage your existing collection? How to keep costs under control and get out of those cycles of proliferation and rationalization? How to select flavors more quickly and in a more rational manner?
Get your flavors specified for their most important attribute - their taste! either by yourself or by asking you suppliers to do so. Then all information across suppliers is managed through one central portal, globally accessible across functions. And flavor search is enabled by geography, technical data, application and sensory. As your marketing and R&D team gain access to new sensory insights, they can take full control of briefing and flavor choice.
