E2open’s customers are leveraging sensing and planning solutions to intelligently and quickly respond to changes at any level of their multi-enterprise supply chain.
Agility and responsiveness in demand and supply chain planning with integrated execution is a crucial building block for achieving competitive differentiation, higher customer satisfaction, shorter time-to-market, and better profitability. Yet traditional enterprise resource planning (ERP) and advanced planning systems (APS) do not consider the up-to-date information from the extended trading network that is necessary to create a feasible plan – one that considers both business priorities and updated supply chain constraints. Traditional planning systems also lack fast problem resolution, scenario, and decision support capabilities to manage trade-offs and iterate through multiple alternative what-if scenarios to promote the best version to execute.
Also, traditional demand planning approaches cannot leverage the many kinds of signals available today to better sense and anticipate what customers will order.
Finally, all too often with stand-alone advanced planning solutions, planning is not closely tied to the execution functions, resulting in a significant delay between the decisions and their execution. As a result, wrong instructions are still sent to the suppliers or factories and wrong products are still shipped out.
E2open’s Sensing and Planning solutions were purpose-built to overcome these challenges with an integrated product suite to unlock immediate business benefits.
