Delivering what many don’t think possible today

Endless simulations with seamless collaboration

Anyone, anytime, anywhere should be able to simulate anything to learn what impacts performance. Collaboration should be smooth and context-driven. The right people should naturally connect on the right projects.

Supply and demand balancing in seconds

Balancing supply and demand should take seconds, not days or weeks. Your analytics engine should always be on. There should only be one data model so everyone sees and works from the same information.

Easy historical comparisons and context

History should never be lost. Knowing where you were yesterday, last week, last month is critical to understanding how you arrived at today’s plan and what tomorrow’s should look like.

Uncomplicated consolidation and personalization

Consolidating data in various formats from different systems shouldn't be a chore. Supply chain planning software should be ERP-agnostic. You shouldn’t need custom coding or IT to change your planning environment.

Breakthrough results at all stages of maturity

You shouldn’t have to wait until a certain supply chain maturity level to see value and enable growth. To get better results just replace cascaded planning with concurrent planning.
