Sales & Operations PlanningBEAT YOUR BUDGET, SURPASS YOUR GOALS
S&OP is a forward-looking decision-making process, which aims to balance demand and supply in the supply chain on an 18-month horizon. Companies with more mature S&OP processes also integrate financial planning with operational planning and link high-level strategic plans to their day-to-day operations. Cross-functional in nature, this business process brings together Sales, Finance, Production, Marketing and other key departments, and is typically carried out on a monthly cadence. The maturity of the S&OP process may differ per industry and company. Quintiq S&OP supports all maturity levels.
