Steelwedge, the leader in cloud-based Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) solutions, today announced that it is hosting a webinar on Wednesday, March 27, at 12:00 p.m. EDT entitled, “The Why and the How Guide to Making a Smart S&OP Technology Selection.” Click here to register.
While sales and operations planning (S&OP) has been around for 30 years, there remains significant opportunity for companies to fully benefit from it. Many manufacturers “get stuck” at the supply/demand balancing level and never progress into Integrated Business Planning (IBP). That’s because the vast majority of companies still use Excel and manual efforts to drive their S&OP processes.
While no company will ever completely abandon spreadsheets, those who attempt to achieve S&OP maturity with only disconnected processes and solutions will never drive truly collaborative, scalable planning. The alternative lies in selecting the right technology to power S&OP to the next level.
In this webinar, Lora Cecere, founder of Supply Chain Insights, will provide direction on:
- How the right S&OP technology can render big business benefits
- How S&OP technologies have changed over time
- How to select the S&OP solution that best fits your requirements
- How to avoid the pitfalls of implementation
Attendees will learn how technologies have changed and how they can select the solution that best fits their requirements.
Who should attend:
- S&OP and Supply Chain Leadership
- Demand/Forecast Planners
- Business Planners
- Heads of IT
- Anyone involved in or leading an S&OP RFP project
