Live Webcast – The Journey to Best-in-Class S&OP

Logility and Aberdeen Group Explore Key Factors to Drive Sales and Operations Planning Excellence
ATLANTA — October 19, 2015 — Logility, Inc., a leading provider of collaborative supply chain optimization and advanced retail planning solutions, and Bryan Ball, vice president and principal analyst of Supply Chain Management with Aberdeen Group, will share the latest research to help companies drive their sales and operations planning (S&OP) to be more a mature, predictive, and strategic S&OP process. The live event hosted by APICS, “The Journey to Best–in–Class S&OP“, will begin Thursday, October 22, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. ET.

Sales and operations planning is considered to be one of the most important business management processes within an organization. Ironically, when a company has pushed its S&OP process to the point of reliably striking a balance between demand and supply, the supply chain team can feel “stuck” on a plateau of S&OP performance. For many, it’s difficult to push beyond this sticking point to reach the ultimate S&OP goal: utilizing a predictive process model to drive a single plan for the entire business. This live webcast will highlight opportunities to drive more value across your organization and remove the barriers to your S&OP success.
