Planning & forecasting with analytics
In the light of globalization, technological developments, short product life cycles and consumer-driven trends, companies find themselves competing in volatile markets, where uncertainty is a rule rather than an exception. As a consequence, complexity and the need for cross-functional alignment has grown. Moreover, the rhythms and cycles of business have increased. Organisations want better decisions faster. Planning and forecasting are at the very heart of the business processes of most industrial companies and have been recognized by practitioners and academics as a key element in supply chain management. Companies are spending considerable time improving the quality of their forecasting and planning processes. Skilled and well trained employees are fundamental to realize these improvements. EyeOn helps large companies to control complexity and get grip on uncertainty by designing, implementing and executing excellent planning processes as a discriminating factor for success.
