"In Optimity, we found a solution that actually drives S&OP improvement. It gives us the power to apply supply chain optimization techniques to ensure that S&OP planning is continuously supporting our short and long term business objectives."

Ron Hurley, National Planning Manager

One process, one system

Get the most out of your S&OP process by integrating supply, demand, product and operational planning into one seamless process, enabled by one system.

With a single source of information and only one set of plans, S&OP becomes more transparent and efficient. Configurable dashboards and views ensure that each user has easy access to the information they need to contribute.

Optimized S&OP

With Sales & Operations Planner you are not just reconciling demand and supply plans – you are optimizing them for maximum profit.

Because Optimity takes your business constraints into account, your starting point for the S&OP cycle is an already feasible and pre-optimized plan. Another benefit is that your bottlenecks are immediately visible, allowing the S&OP discussions to focus on these areas.

Demand collaboration

Efficient demand collaboration is a must for successful sales and operations planning. With forecasting that automatically factors in trends and seasonality, and specialist functionality for managing and evaluating events and promotions, Optimity Sales & Operations Planner provides everything you need. Forecasts can be easily aggregated to support network capacity plans and budgets, or similarly broken down to drive the more granular plans.

Instant "what-if?” analysis

Every S&OP cycle throws up a lot of questions that need to be answered. Sales & Operations Planner provides you with powerful simulation capabilities to objectively evaluate competing scenarios, without causing delay. Any exceptions and issues are automatically flagged, allowing your users to quickly hone in on critical constraints and uncover opportunities for growth and cost savings.
