Event details:

A company may be running SAP, Oracle or other legacy ERP systems, but their collaborative S&OP modules may not be the right choice. Put another way: ERP systems create a solid “body” for a company, but the “brains” may be lacking.

In this webinar, Steelwedge will discuss how its S&OP solutions provide the brainpower for SAP and Oracle offerings. Attendees will learn the key criteria to use when choosing an S&OP solution.

This webinar is designed for companies considering implementing collaborative S&OP technology who need to understand how to overcome common business, technical and organizational challenges. Steelwedge S&OP experts will discuss recommended project phase components and key project milestones, as well as the inherent value found in the newest features and functionality.

The webinar will also address the primary function of S&OP: to ensure adherence to strategic business objectives. Doing this will provide demonstrable results, including:

  1. Reduction of planning cycle times
  2. Improvements in forecast accuracy
  3. Reduction in stock-outs
  4. Increase in revenue and/or margin

Who should attend:

  1. S&OP and Supply Chain Leadership
