How Does I-Plan De-risk Your Supply Chain?

Supply chains are complex, dynamic and fast-moving. By definition, they embody high degrees of uncertainty. It is often overlooked by companies that develop supply chain management software that their main function is to de-risk these supply chains.

 

We have always understood this and I-Plan was developed to take the risk out of supply chains for global manufacturing companies.

For the Sales Director, it’s about de-risking inventory, supply and distribution by accurately forecasting demand.

For the Supply Chain Executive it’s a question of balance, of de-risking the price of failure against the cost of service.

For the Finance Director it’s about de-risking the delivery of financial targets.

For the C-Suite, it’s about taking the risk out of the impact supply chain mismanagement can have on profitability and operational infrastructure.

For the IT Buyer or Technology Buyer it’s taking the risk out of choosing the best software solution.

 

De-risking your supply chain means knowing how it works, identifying where the uncertainties are, modelling ‘What-If’ scenarios and delivering solutions that can be deployed within hours or minutes.

It’s this clear understanding of the problems faced by global manufacturing companies and the elegance of our solutions that sets us apart. Lora Cecere, former Gartner Analyst and CEO of Supply Chain Insights, writes that “only thirty percent of companies have ‘What-If Capabilities’. She describes these capabilities as “a primary driver of agility”. We describe them as a matter of survival.
