"Implementing Blueshift’s Forecasting and Trade Spend Management tool has significantly improved the visibility of how and where we spend our Trade Investment funds. Consequently, we can review and optimise our investment for the greatest return on our funds. Along with this, the improved confidence in our forecasting has resulted in reduced stock holdings, increased stock turns and an ability to make significantly better decisions around the efficiency and effectiveness of our spend."− Grant Lewis, Commercial Manager - Sales, Marketing & Innovation, Sanitarium

"It is quite apparent that being in a position of having good information and data at your finger tips will give any business a competitive edge in regards to the way business is conducted. When we looked at Blueshift, we saw a solution that would be able to take our business to the next level, by allowing us to gather, process and manage information more accurately, giving us the ability to make good and informed decisions in a timely and quick fashion. We found that Blueshift were highly professional in their dealings with us, understood our needs and from a cultural perspective, a good fit for Patties Foods. We don't view Blueshift as a vendor that we deal with, but more like a value add partner that will assist in achieving our goals"− Zelko Erdec, General Manager of Information Technology, Patties Foods
"GilkesonKemp have been engaged over the past 2 years on behalf of a consumer healthcare client to scope and implement an integrated business planning platform within their business. Throughout the RFI and RFP process, we approached Blueshift to take part, believing that the ONE solution may be exactly what the client was looking for. Throughout the RFI and RFP process, Blueshift were engaging and flexible and demonstrated that not only did they possess the technical power and software that would deliver the capabilities that the client needed, they had the people and industry experience that would be needed to support the implementation and ongoing needs within the business. Over the last 12 month we have worked with Blueshift daily in the project planning and implementation of the ONE software into the business. It has been a real pleasure to work with the Blueshift team. The project implementation has not been straightforward, requiring a significant amount of customisation, as well as some additional requirement executive requests that were brought on board in the midst of development and implementation. Blueshift have taken this all in their stride, they have always been professional and approachable and willing to “think outside the box” to meet the needs of the business. The ONE solution went live in the business approx. 4 months ago now and is significantly transforming the way the business plans for demand, and plans, tracks and manages financial expenditure. I continue to receive positive feedback on the new solution from client stakeholders on a weekly basis. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Blueshift team and the ONE solution to any business looking for an integrated business planning solution. I look forward to hopefully working with the team again in the future."− Fi Gilkeson, Director, GilkesonKemp
