Steelwedge Partners With KeyOn B.V. to
Deliver S&OP Solutions in Europe
Alliance Combines Deep Experience in S&OP Process
With Powerful Integrated Business Planning Platform
Pleasanton, CA, August 21, 2013 - Steelwedge, the leader in cloud-based sales and operations planning (S&OP) solutions, today announced that it has partnered with KeyOn B.V. to provide S&OP consulting and technology solutions to European customers.
Based in The Netherlands, KeyOn is an independent consultancy firm that offers specialized services. This includes implementation of planning, budgeting, and control systems that enable large companies to run the best possible systems for integrated business planning (IBP). Steelwedge and KeyOn will collaborate on product consulting and implementation to enable customers to experience the full benefits of the Steelwedge IBP platform in a short time frame, minimizing the burden on customers’ internal IT departments.
The cloud-based Steelwedge IBP solution connects people, processes and technology to plan, coordinate and clearly visualize demand and supply. In a rapidly changing environment, the ability of a company to quickly adapt becomes vital. This requires the proper synchronization of demand, supply and finance at the strategic and tactical planning levels. The Steelwedge solution’s “what-if” scenario modeling functionality determines the financial effect of supply-demand trade-off decisions.
“Steelwedge is thrilled to partner with KeyOn in Europe because we’re both incredibly passionate about delivering superior S&OP and IBP solutions to our customers,” said Michelle Jones, Vice President of Alliances at Steelwedge. “For companies looking to create an integrated view of demand, supply, and finances to improve forecasting and planning processes, this partnership brings the best of both worlds: superior technology and outstanding consulting.”
KeyOn helps customer balance finance, demand and supply every day. The partnership with Steelwedge is a natural extension to its robust consulting portfolio.
“KeyOn selected Steelwedge as our integrated business planning partner to help meet increasing demand we see from our clients and prospects for cloud-based sales and operations planning solutions,” said Jan Veerman, Managing Partner at KeyOn. “Together we will deliver the right combination of people, process and technology to enable the effective practice of S&OP, as well as planning cycle excellence.”
