Effectively balance demand and supply to drive top- and bottom-line value

Building the most effective plan to satisfy customer needs ranks at the top of every company’s priority list. It requires true collaboration amongst Finance, Marketing and Supply Chain Planning. Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) provides the process to do it. Also referred to as integrated business planning, S&OP begins with the creation of a consensus demand forecast and overlays supply chain constraints to arrive at a 3- to 24-month plan.

A single cross-functional view of enterprise demand and supply

Antuit helps organizations assemble relevant data through supply chain planning from across the organization into a dashboard through integrated business planning.

Armed with this information, cross-functional teams can collaborate to propose and arrive at alternative scenarios to satisfy customer demand.
