Your End-to-End, Global Supply Chain Process Journey

Where Will You Take RapidResponse?

RapidResponse® fuels key supply chain management (SCM) and sales and operations planning (S&OP) processes as well as other associated business functions. As these supply chain processes are brought together within RapidResponse, companies build an end-to-end SCM platform. This enables concurrent planning across functions and time horizons, and facilitates continuous orchestration of an enterprise’s operations performance.

Companies typically select RapidResponse for a particular business challenge. In the process of solving that problem effectively, they realize how well the supply chain solution can be applied broadly across their business and how much more value can be achieved by incorporating additional functions.

Over time, RapidResponse becomes a strategic technology enabler for end-to-end, global supply chain process management.

T. Payne; January 20, 2016

A Supply Chain Planning (SCP) System of Record (SOR) is a planning platform that enables a company to create, manage, link, align, collaborate and share its planning data across a supply chain — from demand plan creation through the supply-side response, and from detailed operational planning through tactical-level planning.

End-to-End Supply Chain System Integration

Any supply chain application configured into RapidResponse is always connected to the base engine, and all the data, business rules and analytics are stored in a single instance of RapidResponse. This means subsequent applications are not added as isolated functions that need to be integrated, but rather as an innate part of the broader platform.

With the ability to replace multiple legacy demand and supply planning systems, modules and the typical myriad of accompanying spreadsheets, RapidResponse enables a company to operate in an orchestrated fashion, by leveraging:

  • a single product;
  • a single data model; and
  • a single user interface.
