Pleasanton, CA (PRWEB) September 10, 2010
Steelwedge, the leader in Cloud-based Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) solutions, announced today that it will be an exhibitor at the Sales and Operation Planning Innovation conference, where key customers from Sara Lee and a Fortune 50 chemicals company will deliver presentations on the topics of aligning S&OP KPIs with business performance drivers and demand-driven S&OP, respectively. The event is taking place September 9-10 in Boston, MA.
In today’s climate of uncertain demand and strained supply chains, the power of S&OP to help companies respond to market realities with greater agility has become even more apparent. Executives from leading high-tech, manufacturing and consumer products firms will be attending the conference to discuss the fact that S&OP has risen in importance and is now a proven way to meet demand while optimizing supply chain costs.
“Companies around the world are discovering that a best-in-class S&OP process powered by technology is a sure way to manage fluctuating demand and the resulting impacts on the supply chain,” explained Michael Kramer, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Steelwedge. “We’re pleased that these Steelwedge customers and S&OP thought leaders have been invited to share firsthand knowledge of how our solution can consolidate global demand, align sales with supply and capacity constraints, and simulate every imaginable supply and demand ‘what-if’ scenario.”
Conference attendees will have the opportunity to explore how the Steelwedge solution provides companies with powerful capabilities to: match demand to relevant supply and capacity constraints; review all demand, inventory and supply plans simultaneously in revenue and profit as well as volume; run “what-if” scenarios to simulate the impact of changes to demand or supply; and conduct margin analysis live to evaluate the impact of these scenarios and report S&OP performance.
All visitors to the Steelwedge booth will be entered in a raffle to win a Kindle 3G, which will come preloaded with the leading S&OP literature.
