Accelerator Synopsis

Integrated Sales & Operations Planning (IS&OP) accelerator is a strategy and operations planning tool that provides a highly customizable and configurable user space. IS&OP is a platform for the supply chain teams to reach a consensus on meeting demand. Users can compare various versions of the demand, generate an independent demand estimate to corroborate the various versions of the truth, and set a benchmark through a consensus-building exercise. IS&OP also provides levers for estimating the impact of demand on operations (labor & transportation) and the gap between demand & supply, and a forum for planning and scheduling operations.
