As your business grows, so does the amount of data. Your portfolio of products or SKUs may become more complex, with less predictable demand patterns.
It becomes increasingly difficult to scale-up to meet new business needs. Your team is caught up in manual,time consuming and labor intensive processes. You are outgrowing your infrastructure.
And you may also be dealing with a disconnect between commercial sales and the operations teams, each coming from very different viewpoints. Monthly planning cycles are behind schedule and are not timely.
ToolsGroup offer’s an entirely new approach to Supply Chain Planning and S&OP, called “Powerfully Simple”. With this approach, the technology becomesthe game changer. A highly automated process injects a new level of automation and intelligence into your planning process.
Think of it as SCP and S&OP “at the press of a button”. It models the uncertainty of demand and the supply chain. It simulates the impact of inventory on customer service. And it excels at long tail items and intermittent demand.
With the grunt work out of the way, your team is free to focus on what they do best – fine-tuning the plans using their market and business knowledge. Consensus decisions are based on highly automaticstatistical analysis of massive amounts of data. You get a smarter planning process that is not subjective, but objective. You achieve sustainable service levels, spot-on inventory targets that drive 30-40% improvements in inventory efficiency, and lower (e.g., 50%) overhead and ownership costs.
