Pilots are end-to-end tests widely used by manufacturing organizations in high tech corporations. Pooki’s Mahi’s pilot will test supply chain by simulating customer orders, obtaining product feedback and improving teas for private label customers.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 28, 2016
Silicon Valley startup Pooki’s Mahi of award-winning 100% Kona coffee pods announced today it launched a pilot for its single serve tea product line to confirm flavors and complete the catalogue for its soon to launch custom designed personalized private label custom promotional products.
Les Magsalay-Zeller Pooki’s Mahi’s Founder/CEO explains, “Pilots are end-to-end tests widely used by manufacturing organizations in high tech corporations. Pooki’s Mahi’s pilot will test the entire supply chain ecosystem by simulating customer orders, obtaining product feedback and improving the teas for the single serve variety pack(s). What makes Pooki’s Mahi’s pilot tests unique is that the high tech (manufacturing) methodology is used for a low-tech product (food and beverage). Customer and supplier feedback are incorporated before the next pilot test begins or an official new product introduction launch.”
The Silicon Valley high tech executive says, “Once a product line is launched Pooki’s Mahi immediately measures key performance indicators every quarter to determine how early to retire or replace products in the product line. There are two reasons to prune existing product lines. First, the products’ sales performance is not where it needs to be and falls short on expectation. Second, the supplier or supply chain ecosystem cannot support pilot, sales and go-to-market activities. For the first reason existing customers provided valuable feedback on Pooki’s Mahi’s entire loose-leaf tea catalogue. For the second reason partnerships with suppliers work bi-directionally. If multiple communications are needed from Pooki’s Mahi’s team members to obtain an update, then the partnership serves the supplier only.”
Pooki’s Mahi has a very lengthy process to assess suppliers and vendors to support new product lines. Immediate return on investment (ROI), consistency, and how easy Pooki’s Mahi’s distributors’ fulfillment centers receive products like Pooki’s Mahi’s 100% Kona coffee pods are important. Mistakes and slowing down Pooki’s Mahi’s operations or supply chain tams are not favorable to the product line evaluation.
There are several specific goals Pooki’s Mahi’s pilot test(s) aims to accomplish. The first goal is to finalize tea flavors available in the single serve tea bundle collection. The second goal is to finalize the tea profiles for the upcoming custom products private label teas. Pooki’s Mahi landed new internet retailers and confirmed existing customers for a joint new product launch. Pooki’s Mahi estimates the new tea pods will launch late 2016 or Q1 2017 in all sales channels.
