Sales & Operations Planning
Traditional advantages once prized may become obstacles to building future success
Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) is a process that harmonises the supply and demand plans of business over the mid-to-long term horizon, usually 3 to 18 months. In addition to bridging the supply and demand plans, S&OP also focusses on integrating financial reporting as well as encompassing market planning, new product development and business strategy.
This subject has been around for decades, we understand the importance of integrated planning, supporting daily operations with monthly and quarterly plans. It is fundamentally about developing actionable intelligence that can be propagated to all stakeholders in real time. Synchronising and harmonising the communication and data value chain. Resulting in reduced operating costs with increased revenues from sales.
