IBS Sales & Operations Planning

Connecting the Business Plans

When your operations plan unfolds independently of your financial plan, and vice versa, you are liable to struggle financially. You will experience communication disconnects, frequent stock-outs, excess inventory, inconsistent fill rates, and declining margins, revenues and customer satisfaction. Your supply and demand levels won’t match, rendering your business strategy incoherent, and every forecast will appear unreliable.

Connect your operational decisions to your financial plan by continuously balancing supply and demand, and you will see dramatic improvements in what matters most to the health of your business - profitability.

Better Planning Drives Profitability

IBS Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) is a set of integrated planning, monitoring and management applications that place accurate, real-time information directly into the hands of your key business decision-makers. Better decisions mean better planning, leading to streamlined business processes, improved customer service and increased profitability.

Our solution gives you the up-to-date, accurate information you need to make those critical business decisions that will help you achieve the five key value drivers for distribution profitability:

  • Improved margins
  • Optimized inventory
  • Maximized revenues
  • Reduced expenses
  • Controlled cash

IBS S&OP software includes:

  • Advanced Sales and Operations Planning: helping you balance supply and demand across the supply chain for improved efficiency and profitability.
  • Planner View: enables your people to visualize information and plan work more efficiently.
  • Demand Planning: allows you to create the most accurate forecasts possible.
