Sales and operations planning made simple

Collaboration: always critical but never easy

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.

Once you can see the shipments moving in transit, you can predict any late shipments and adjust. NCR will see a seven-figure benefit from the implementation; it has added definite value for us.

Having visibility to the supply chain gives us and our suppliers the opportunity to plan. We talk about planning its capacity, its resources, its material—and it helps with the cost as well by having all those elements tied together.

We know what stock we have in the channel, is it healthy, what our average days of stock are, do we ship in more or do we reduce what we are shipping? We are really in control of channel data.
