Sales and Operations Planning
Align your internal teams, external partners, and financial goals using one intuitive solution that empowers you to create consistently profitable, execution-ready plans. Transform traditional planning and inefficient planning processes by leveraging e2open Sales and Operations Planning to simplify collaboration and accelerate consensus.
Planning can be disjointed and disconnected
Multiple stakeholders, shifting demands, and fluctuating supply can make planning feel like a juggling act. Without the right sales and operations planning (S&OP) process and current high-quality data, companies often see suboptimal outcomes due to knowledge gaps, silos, and incentive conflicts. Including external trading partner data in the S&OP process to improve demand and supply visibility is another concern. Once finalized, the next challenge is to seamlessly push the plan into execution and monitor performance to keep everything on track.
