Taking S&OP to the next level with supply chain analytics

Many supply chain leaders realize the potential of analytics but need to see concrete examples. With our 30-year heritage in advanced analytics and our experience with Fortune 500 and mid-size companies, we have plenty of those to share. Sales and operations planning (S&OP) tools are increasingly being adopted by companies and while they enable data visualization and collaboration, they often miss the intelligence to recommend actions that improve your EBITDA. Find out how our self-configurable S&OP solution can help you take S&OP to the next level. This webinar covers: How to get more insights from your S&OP using analytics. How to get more "signals" to identify opportunities and risks which weren't traditionally visible. How to spend less time on data gathering, more time on reflection and discussion. How S&OP coupled with analytics will help you make better decisions than your competition.
