E2 Collaborative Supply Planning
In today’s complex global supply networks with rapidly fluctuating demand and supply signals, it is absolutely essential to have a collaborative supply planning process in place with your trading partners in order to accurately synchronize supply and demand. The process is complicated further because companies must coordinate and collaborate with hundreds of different suppliers across the supply network, each of which may have different tools and technological capabilities to enable real time supply planning process.
E2 Collaborative Supply Planning enables forecast collaboration between buyers/planners and suppliers, helping to match supply and demand across the network. E2 Collaborative Supply Planning provides a collaborative multi-enterprise platform that enables you to publish mid- to long-term forecasts, and to receive suppliers’ commits and potential upside capabilities. It dynamically flags business process exceptions and alerts buyers and suppliers to proactively resolve before it becomes a critical supply chain issue leading to stock-outs. It also provides a rich set of key performance indicators (KPIs) and business analytics that enable continuous performance measurement and monitoring.
