Managing volatile demand involves sourcing from base ingredients, components or subassemblies that are often constrained. E2open’s Forecast Collaboration application provides early visibility into supply constraints for both existing and upside orders, allowing buyers and sellers to proactively identify and address mismatches before they impact business. This improves productivity and supply assurance while reducing lead times and risk.
