S&OP Performance Management
Sales & Operations in it’s essence is about balancing supply and demand. No matter whether you sell goods or services, gaps between capacity and market demand need to be forecasted properly and closed quickly. Our Sales & Operations Performance Management allows to better align the strategic and operational plans. It helps to deliver the right quantities of the right product or service to the right customer at the right time, without stockpiling unnecessary inventory.
Get updated forecasts that lead to detailed sales plans and strategic production/inventory/backlog and new product development plans. Work with a strategic initiative plan to benefit from a proper financial plan.
