Demand Planning

Sales and operations planning, inventory optimization

Most companies have an S&OP process, but few have the right solution to support it. Fewer still have a solution with a powerful enough engine to optimize plans and generate what-if scenarios to continuously find ways to maximize revenue. 

The inability to accurately match inventory supply with demand variability, the disconnected supply chain processes and the lack of cross-functional collaboration can negatively impact long-term delivery performance. Furthermore, connecting the supply plan to the operational plan is a challenge every company faces. 

Demand Planning optimizes your business processes for higher performance and profit. Its optimization, forecasting and what-if scenario planning capabilities support fast and confident decision-making at every stage of the planning cycle, no matter what your company's level of S&OP maturity is. 

From collaboration to capability, Demand Planning offers an S&OP top down or bottom up process for demand and supply planning in a detailed single global platform. Optimization technology incorporates configurable KPIs and weightings that enable strategies to be tested and analyzed such as prioritization on fulfillment, profit maximization or revenue attainment. Additionally, Product Lifecycle Management seamlessly feeds into the S&OP process to maximize new product profits.
