Supply chain planning for an industry where change never stops
When your product lifecycle turns over every six months, your partners are halfway around the world and the structure of your business is constantly evolving, your supply chain planning needs to keep up.
RapidResponse gives you end-to-end supply chain visibility no matter how many partners, contract manufacturers or suppliers you have. It speeds up decision-making by capturing all your master and transactional data in one place.
What you get with RapidResponse
Faster decision-making with a single platform for planning all supply chain functions across all manufacturing sites, distribution centers, network partners and other stakeholders.
Easier planning by pooling data from all your disparate systems, including combining data from multiple enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems.
Simulate lifecycle curves to profitably manage new, steady state, price drops and slow moving product.
Risk management with extensive simulation capabilities to see how capacity, pricing and other scenarios could affect your revenues, profitability, service, margins and costs.
Faster integration of newly merged or acquired supply chains with quick capture of master and transactional data and support for the additional data sources that come from mergers and acquisitions.
The speed in which scenarios can be created and analyzed has gone from 24-48 hours to 10-30 minutes in our S&OP process with RapidResponse. Planners use scenarios to hone in on a solution that may involve changing and recalculating the scenario multiple times – that would take 24 hours for each cycle in our SAP planning tools.
RapidResponse added Demand Planning functionality and displaced SAP APO. It improved forecast accuracy and reduced planning cycle times.
RapidResponse has reduced the cycle time for producing a supply plan for operations by half, while allowing for greater supply/operational plan accuracy.
