PLEASANTON, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 22, 2013) - Steelwedge, the leader in cloud-based sales and operations planning (S&OP) solutions, will host a webinar on Tuesday, April 23, 2013 at 9:00 am PDT titled "Got a Unique S&OP Process? There's an App for That." Dr. Blake Johnson, Stanford educator and supply chain innovator, will present.
Is part of your company's competitive advantage captured in unique processes and KPIs that you can't manage in your planning systems?
Like your iPhone, your business's planning system should enable business planners, partners, and others to build simple "apps" on top of it. These apps should enable you to embed and scale your unique capabilities and processes, and rapidly evolve them as your business and its needs change.
Dr. Johnson will discuss the growing imperative to implement and scale differentiating planning capabilities. Discuss the benefits of an S&OP foundation that can be easily augmented -- and automated -- with emerging best practice processes and your company's otherwise unique "off-line" processes.
Register and join the webinar to learn:
- How to identify opportunities to leverage a planning system to accommodate inevitable changes in your business
- How to connect and scale your company's "secret sauce" processes with your planning system
- Examples of emerging best practice planning apps: range forecasting, segmentation, demand policy and stocking strategy
- How to implement iPhone-like apps on your S&OP planning platform to not only support, but flex with your company's processes
