Integration has served multi-billion and multi-million-dollar Agribusiness clients across 16 different countries, delivering projects ranging from end-to-end Supply Chain transformations through to M&As and Go-to-Market redesigns.
Against a backdrop of changing consumer demands, established traditional businesses are locked in a battle against new entrants. We are witnessing new sector innovations creating a favorable environment for new entrants to conquer more space leading to a shift in the balance of power.
Durable Consumer Goods
Durable goods present a different set of challenges to typical FMCG. Longer supply chains and product life cycles, costly manufacturing assets, and inventories, greater numbers of new products, and innovation cycles are just a few characteristics that change the way the supply chain and marketing/sales strategy must be managed.
Historically, the education sector has been more traditional and with a low degree of innovation. Indeed, the way we teach classes and provide educational material in some cases has been the same for decades. However, the sector has been undergoing a strong movement of transformation, digitalization, and globalization in recent years, presenting challenges and opportunities for organizations.
Financial & Payment
Integration has worked with clients spanning the Financial Sector; whether that’s supporting Private Equity & Investments companies alongside each step of the investment process, or serving both B2B and B2C Financial Service Providers, Banks, or Wealth & Asset Management companies.
The food industry is so heterogeneous by nature, it is almost too simplistic to refer to it as one industry – characterized by a huge number of categories and consumption habits, which vary widely across and even within individual markets. On top of this highly variable foundation, food products are sold through a multitude of channels, with different length value chains occupied by players ranging from international conglomerates to neighborhood producers.
Health, Beauty & Personal Care
At Integration, we believe that no two clients and no two contexts are the same. However, in our experience working with more than 70 leading beauty and personal care clients across the world, we have observed some common challenges that underpin the category, particularly within the mass market.
Overcoming any one of these challenges can be the key to unlocking substantial and sustainable growth and fending off competition in what is a highly competitive market.
Integration has served hugely varied clients across the Industrial Sector in over 30 countries, from Oil & Gas producers in Latin America, Construction conglomerates in Europe to Chemical businesses in the US.
We have supported clients across multiple subsectors, regions, and target markets with everything from Supply Chain transformation to entering new markets, building substantial knowledge in different B2B markets.
Logistics & Transportation
Integration has supported some of the biggest names in Transport & Logistics in projects which have spanned 8 countries.
In this highly competitive environment, we have supported our clients with solutions that have increased service levels and operational efficiency, and even in the launch from concept to reality of new services and service models.
Media, Leisure & Entertainment
Integration has served world-renowned brands in the Leisure & Entertainment Sector, delivering projects across 8 countries. We have had the pleasure of working with media conglomerates, hotel chains and even well-known travel retailers.
We have supported clients across different subsectors and target markets with challenges related to market/environmental shifts, digital business models, and organization redesign.
Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare
Integration has worked with multi-billion and multi-million-dollar clients in the Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare sector spanning health insurers, pharmaceutical manufacturers, hospitals, and pharmacy retailers. Our broad and deep experience allows us to support organizations across the entire healthcare value chain.
Private Equity & Investments
High entry multiples and competition for assets are putting pressure on private equity companies to continue to deliver top-quartile returns. Firms can no longer rely purely on financial engineering to enhance portfolio value and instead must become more innovative through operational improvements.
The greatest challenge that PE managers face today, therefore, is to become successful operating partners for their portfolio companies, actively supporting them to deliver significant and sustainable value and deliver the expected returns. It is not enough anymore to only bring-in an experienced management team and relies on senior experts on the board.
Working with players across the whole Real Estate value chain has given Integration a deep understanding of the industry on an international scale. We have supported the suppliers, such as construction material companies, with GTM and supply chain strategies; as well as those on the demand side, such as investment funds and retailers, with understanding how to maximize returns or make better investment decisions.
Retail & E-commerce
The retail business environment is undergoing a major transformation – new consumer habits, e-commerce growth, and digital transformation are trends that are here to stay and should generate profound changes in this industry. The customer journey will be completely reshaped, channels will change, Stores will change their role completely.
Integration has served more than 200 Service Sector clients, delivering over 600 projects in both B2C and B2B markets.
Our strong focus on the customer and how best to serve them has driven us to be able to work across markets and geographies. We have supported a broad range of clients, from educators to cleaning and security providers to car rental services, in overcoming their specific and often nuanced challenges.
Integration has worked with NGOs, public bodies (such as hospitals and education institutions), and directly with governments, tackling a range of needs across different geographies.
In this varied sector, we have had the pleasure of working with our clients to deliver important change, ranging from raising awareness of conscious consumption to expanding full-time education. We’ve even received some important awards for our work in Change Management.
