Vanguard Predictive Planning for Supply Chain Planning matches advanced analytics with a workflow design that fosters communication and tracks the inputs and actions of diverse users. This brings into shared view oft-missed planning criteria:
- Competitor actions
- Supply changes
In essence, Vanguard Predictive Planning for Supply Chain brings together inputs from multiple teams to improve visibility and transparency, and speed projects along.
For example, any authorized project partner can layer baseline forecasts with foreknowledge from his vantage point in the enterprise. Critical info that once languished in silos flows straight into the work stream. No longer are forecasts based solely on history. No longer are assumptions woefully incomplete. Our goal is to help you build these bridges: digital and human.
Vanguard Predictive Planning for Supply Chain is engineered to maximize full-scale collaboration on a single platform. It also features advanced-analytic algorithms, boundless user scalability, lightning-fast query response times, and the capacity to crunch massive data sets for clients anywhere in the world.
The goal of S&OP is to align Sales and Operations teams. SiOP involved the inventory team as well. Leading organizations share a common plan, measure and monitor KPIs, and enable collaboration across the disparate teams. How is this accomplished? Using an IBP platform that is specifically designed for the S&OP process.
Vanguard S&OP enables organizations to:
- Implement automation through workflow-based S&OP support
- Facilitate executive management review and performance management
- Track performance to plan
- Ensure balance between demand, supply, and inventory
Cloud-Based Supply Chain Planning
In the cloud, you and your extended supply chain partner network are part of a streaming, social network-like exchange. All parties see and react to each others’ updates, and a single version of the truth begins to emerge. This zero lag in information improves efficiency and performance at the company and value-chain level. It’s a degree of transparency that is simply not available in the legacy paradigm of spreadsheets and plugins.
Enterprise-minded organizations have already determined that both cloud and collaboration are the future. Many are taking steps to develop IBP processes and cultures. Increasingly more are investing in best-of-breed IBP platforms that integrate with their ERP, or core transaction systems. These organizations understand that there is simply too much to gain from the cloud, or too much to risk by not migrating.
