Capgemini’s Accelerated Solutions Environment (ASE) helped supercenter operator Meijer reduce its SG&A costs and create a “culture of thrift” that increased competitiveness and enabled expansion.
Meijer reduces SG&A costs and creates a “culture of thrift”
Validate, quantify, and consolidate
The project began with a six-week diagnostic and ASE session designed to validate, quantify, and consolidate transformation opportunities into an integrated program. After achieving two-thirds of the projected savings, a second ASE was conducted at month 15. The follow-up ASE was conducted to reinforce the capture of the remaining first-ASE savings and to add the required transformation line items, which would ensure the achievement of the SG&A goal.
