S&OP: Collaboration and Consensus

Plan collaboratively with internal and external stakeholders. Facilitate consensus by balancing demand, supply, and financial goals.

Consistently Profitable, Execution-Ready Plans

Transform traditional planning and meet corporate objectives. Using fresh data, e2open Sales and Operations Planning helps you gain cross-functional buy-in, align internal teams and external partners, and evaluate the cost of tradeoffs.

Streamline and modernize sales and operations planning (S&OP):

  • Accelerate Decision-Making
    Visibility and decision support help you make informed decisions faster and with greater flexibility.
  • Integrate with Sales and Finance
    Integration with sales and financial processes enables you to establish a comprehensive cross-functional workflow.

  • Shorten S&OP Cycle Times
    By automating data gathering and processing, the application helps reduce overall S&OP cycle times and bring convergence between planning and execution.
  • Prepare to Move Ahead as One
    Little can be accomplished without buy-in, but consensus-driven plans promote successful execution across both internal and external teams.
  • Improve Forecast Accuracy
    Machine learning algorithms help to produce more accurate forecasts and improve planner productivity.
  • Model Opportunities and Risks
    What-if scenario analyses enable you to model revenue opportunities, volatility risks, and supply alternatives.
  • Empower Stakeholders
    All stakeholders can collaborate to manage the S&OP process, create consensus demand forecasts, and reconcile constrained plans with financial goals.
  • Advance to Next-Level S&OP
    Optional linkages to our channel, supplier, and logistics partner networks help take you to the next level—multi-enterprise S&OP—for a modern interconnected supply chain.
