Supply Management

Mature from S&OP to Integrated Business Planning

Less than 40% of companies are satisfied with their S&OP process. Why? Strong S&OP process requires a focus on process redesign and technology.  Too often the S&OP process is stuck in Excel causing a lot of second-guessing to already ineffective processes.

With increasing uncertainty and volatility, companies need an easy to use, collaborative common plan to help the organization work as one.     John Galt enables business leaders to confidently make decisions by designing sustainable processes while delivering a single plan that everyone can collaborate on, evaluate different scenarios, understand the financial impact and execute based on strategic goals.

How do you transform your S&OP process?

  • Build the foundation by developing an unconstrained and constrained demand plan that translates to a supply plan while assessing capacity and inventory. Link to your financial plan, identify and close any gaps. Spin up any number of scenarios to evaluate trade-offs, impacts across multiple functions and compare KPIs. Share your scenarios and facilitate the planning process by collaborating on the same plan cross-functionally with other business areas such as planning, manufacturing, and commercial groups.
  • Evolve your S&OP process by creating a plan focused on maximizing opportunity by balancing customers service growth and inventory. Extend the plan and collaborate with external trading partners and link together volume, currency and units of measure.  Link planning decisions to execution and view different levels of detail and across different time horizons.
  • Accelerate your process by shifting from an enterprise focus to a network model with a focus on maximizing opportunity and minimizing risk while balancing growth and customer service. Gain clear visibility into your company’s current and projected performance, anticipate potential gaps and risks, and orchestrate coordinated and calculated responses in support of your company’s strategic financial objectives.  Align long-term strategic plans with innovation and operational decision making.

Hundreds of global brands trust Atlas to deliver results and improve their processes.  At John Galt we partner closely with our customers to deliver an easy-to use, common plan that is actionable and incorporates all the moving parts across the supply chain.
