Collaborative Planning


Collaborative Planning

Improve performance with increased collaboration & visibility

Improve supply chain performance dramatically by providing your planners with real time visibility and the ability to collaborate with key stakeholders both inside and outside your business. Such visibility and collaboration enables a “one number” collaborative planning, forecasting, and replenishment (CPFR) process with suppliers, customers, and business stakeholders.

John Galt provides you with a flexible platform for collaboration, including mobile phone and tablet readiness, end-to-end workflow management, real time chat and notification systems, shared KPI scorecards, and offline collaboration. See more key collaborative planning capabilities listed below.
