Integrated Reconciliation and Optimization

The critical success factor for effective Integrated Business Planning (Advanced S&OP)

Whether yours is a single site operation or a multi-national corporation with a complex matrix structure, Integrated Reconciliation and Optimization is critical in a modern business planning environment.  Integrated Reconciliation and Optimization lies at the heart of the Integrated Business Planning process – it is the guardian of the “one set of numbers”, so essential to effective planning. Integrated Reconciliation and Optimization is also the element of Integrated Business Planning, which lifts it out of the traditional S&OP activity of tactical demand and supply balancing, and transforms it into the truly integrated business management process it is today - bringing alignment around business priorities and enabling effective decision-making in uncertain times.
