Supply chains are complex. From forecasting and planning, to production, warehousing, and transportation, all aspects must be finely tuned.
End-to-end Visibility

Data discovery dashboards and scorecards can integrate large volumes of disparate data from many sources, while detailed visualizations reveal previously unseen trends and data associations. Executive dashboards and scorecards provide end-to-end visibility of supply chain performance across multiple functions and disciplines, allowing executives to make better, more informed decisions. Significantly, these capabilities elevate the priority of the supply chain to the decision-makers at C-level.

Forecasting & Planning

Processes such as Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) and Collaborative Planning, Forecasting and Replenishment (CPFR) require collaboration both inside and outside the organization. They seek to plan the supply chain by balancing the needs of all participants with the end result being a rationalized single plan for the coming period. S&OP & CPFR are both processes that are underpinned by data, therefore participants need access to information and insights from multiple sources to make informed and timely decisions. Both internal (ERP, supply chain, CRM) and external (consumer sentiment, market analysis, social media) data needs to be included in the processes. Doing so leads to improved responsiveness to consumer demand, better forecast accuracy, inventory reduction, improvement in production utilization, and sales and profit growth

Sourcing & Supplier Performance

Strategic collaboration with suppliers drives efficiencies in the supply chain reducing cost while improving quality and delivery performance. Purchasing professionals need access to supplier data to plan and execute effectively. Providing visibility to suppliers around key performance indicators such as on time shipments and perfect order fulfillment and holding them accountable will drive compliance. Sourcing and supplier scorecards provide a common platform for communicating performance, strengthening relationships and providing objective performance data that can used during negotiations with the supplier. Suppliers are collaborating across a broader scope of activities, from development and sourcing to manufacturing and distribution, so partnerships are developing with an increasing need for data and information exchange in addition to structured performance measures and indicators. Visibility is fundamental for efficient procurement. Not only can it ascertain what is being bought and from whom, but more pertinently, it can help answer the question: “Are we buying in the right way?”
