Pleasanton, CA (PRWEB) November 20, 2013
Steelwedge, the leader in cloud-based Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) solutions, announced today that CEO Glen Margolis will be speaking on a panel discussion on how social S&OP is transforming the supply chain. The session, “Introducing the Social Supply Chain,” is part of the Dreamforce Open Innovation track and will be held on November 20 at 10:30 AM PST at the Hilton San Francisco, Union Square.
In today's climate of uncertain demand and strained supply chains, adopting a social sales and operations planning (S&OP) process that improves planning and enables companies to respond to market realities with greater agility has become an imperative.
"Companies around the world are discovering that a highly collaborative S&OP process incorporating structured and unstructured communications is a sure way to manage fluctuating demand and the resulting impacts on the supply chain," explained Glen Margolis, CEO.
Dreamforce attendees will have the opportunity to explore how the Steelwedge solution provides companies with powerful capabilities to share, communicate and match demand to relevant supply and capacity constraints; collaborate on 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 discussion to evaluate the impact of these scenarios and report S&OP performance.
