Infor, which provides business application software, is now offering Infor Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) version 1.0. Infor S&OP is an entirely new solution, built for the unique needs of manufacturers, suppliers, and distributors.
Infor's solution provides capabilities for creating, managing, and using electronic workflows that address every major stage in the S&OP process, allowing global teams to gain consensus and make decisions faster with a higher degree of confidence. It also integrates extensive "what if" scenario-building tools directly into decision-making workflows. This allows teams to model potential changes based on up-to-date demand data, choose the action that results in the highest potential increase in revenue or margin, then finalize and populate the changes automatically across the global supply chain.
Infor S&OP is a standalone software solution that can be used independently or integrated with supply chain management systems from Infor or other third-party providers. The solution helps users more accurately align supply with demand. Workflows tightly integrate data from throughout the global supply chain, providing clear visibility into current demand trends, historical demand levels, and key indicators of potential near-term demand shifts. Using this data, teams can collectively make proactive decisions that better align production and distribution with the biggest opportunities for revenue and quickly adjust operations based on earlier insight into demand variability.
