E2open Recall Management Overview
Product recalls can become an existential risk for companies when negative publicity goes viral on social media. The only way to be properly protected is to have the right systems in place before any recall so that defective or contaminated batches can be immediately identified and brought back quickly, without disrupting regular operations. While it’s not possible to eliminate all recalls, it is possible to mitigate the damage.
Learn how E2open's Recall Management solution helps companies establish standard recall workflows and operating procedures, gain end-to-end traceability, and identify root causes and isolate impacted batches quickly.
E2open Demand Sensing Overview
Demand Sensing is a next-generation forecasting technology invented by E2open in 2002, that analyzes current demand signals such as orders, shipments and retailer data like point-of-sale, to predict the most likely amount of future demand for every item, at every location, every day.
Unlike traditional demand planning technology that relies on historical sales, Demand Sensing is fully automated, using algorithms and machine learning to find patterns within real-time data. It extracts actionable information based on what is actually happening in your supply chain, helping you better understand what your customers will order and when.
E2open Demand Sensing is proven to reduce forecast error by 30-40% and is trusted by some of the world’s largest manufacturers. In fact, E2open Demand Sensing predicts demand for over $250 billion in annual sales every year.

Who Owns the "S" in S&OP?
In recent years, functions other than Sales – including Supply Chain and Finance – have often taken ownership of predicting future sales. The process has become an aggregation exercise done by specialists, and the name itself – demand management – indicates that the Sales team is not intimately involved. But true S&OP requires Sales to “own their number,” which delivers company-wide benefits because Sales is the closest to the demand signal.
In this webinar you will learn about:
- The Sales Planning Challenges
- The Keys to Success
- How a Sales Planning Platform Can Help You Hit Your Number

Creating a Demand Planning System Worthy of the Digital Supply Chain
History is a poor predictor of future sales in today’s fast-moving world. However, many companies still rely on traditional demand planning systems that employ time-series analysis to create forecasts. Increased dependence on new products and promotions to drive growth further compounds the problem; new items lack the two years of data required for time-series analysis and promotions are by nature designed to ensure that history does not repeat itself.
There are, however, some bright spots with leading companies using new demand sensing technology capable of capturing and analyzing the abundance of real-time data in the digital supply chain.
In this webinar, Piet Buyck, VP of Sales, Forecasting Solutions at E2open, explores this new technology, barriers to change, and how it will affect the future supply chain.
