Demand Management Inc., a global resource for supply chain management solutions, recently unveiled a new Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) module for its DSX supply chain software.
Demand Solutions S&OP is a flexible, customizable system that takes the process from data collection to a dynamic supply chain management plan that drives production and sales. Combining demand planning and sales and operations planning into an integrated approach means executives spend less time reacting to problems and more time managing opportunities.
“We now offer Sales & Operations Planning software on a single technology platform that gives companies the ability to manage with a single view of the truth. Planners will no longer have to hand off their information to others during the S&OP process,” said Bill Harrison, president of Demand Management.
“DSX S&OP offers our customers the ability to spend their time on the strategic side of integrated business planning,” he said.
Demand Solutions Sales & Operations Planning establishes a common repository of pertinent information necessary for the planning process: forecast management data, inventory planning information, shipments and production. The system allows the users to combine data from sales, marketing, production, procurement, transportation and finance for a unified view.
“Building to the Gartner (News - Alert) vision shows we are meeting the most sophisticated industry requirements,” said Harrison. “With DSX S&OP, managers have access to all planning data from a single platform. This visibility to the entire supply chain plan is critical for an effective and sustainable S&OP process. DSX offers the one-number approach to planning that senior management requires.”
Demand Management, Inc. has over 25 years of experience working with supply chain professionals and has incorporated best practices and real-world business requirements in its software from its extensive customer base in 76 countries. Demand Solutions customers include Lonely Planet, Trek Bicycle and Avery Dennison.
