Case Study: Large Confectionary Manufacturer in Kenya

Key Challenge: With a market dominance in the confectionary vertical, the business was looking to consolidate its lead in light of new entrants who had better distribution and cheaper products. Work began in January 2016 with a key focus on how we can empower the business to keep track of the stock levels at each of the distributors whilst getting a grip of the outlets covered per day.

Key Result: Virtual City implemented the field sales and distribution management modules of the platform which enabled them to achieve:


  • Visibility of all field operations by 100 sales force agents including sales, orders and payments.

  • A real time picture of stock levels across the country with all 9 regional distributors in full view.

  • A 360 view of market coverage – clear understanding of how many outlets are being visited every day, by which sales reps and visibility of all orders generated per day, route & rep.

  • The solution powered demand planning for production of required products in the market hence driving cost savings in just in time production
