Zilliant recently announced results of its Global B2B Benchmark Report, which was created by applying AI and machine learning to 1 billion rows of B2B transactional data. The report reveals where manufacturing, distribution and service companies are failing to capture hidden pockets of revenue and profit that exist in their businesses today.
The sample data analyzed includes 3.5 million products, 3.7 million buyers, 12 currencies and $53.2 billion in revenue. Traditional business intelligence and analytics simply cannot compute at this scale. For B2B leaders, this makes identifying pockets of leakage highly improbable and operationalizing the capture of leakage impossible. This analysis reveals that all manufacturing, distribution and service companies consistently fail to capture 12% – 36% of the revenue and profit available to them.
AI allows us to accurately pinpoint leakage at the company level and provides actionable guidance on how to capture that revenue and profit. At the global level, the manufacturing, distribution and service industries represent a roughly $22 trillion market. For these industries, the report reveals that a consistent $2.6 – $7.9 trillion goes uncaptured globally per year. At the company level, a $1 billion company experiences revenue leakage of $120 – $360 million per year.
