For I-Plan, the main driver of Supply Chain Optimisation is profitability.
When the optimum balance of demand and supply is known and the mechanism for forecasting demand is robust, it is possible to allocate production resources safely and efficiently.
By taking a human-centric perspective on supply chain management, I-Plan de-risks and optimises supply chains through a practical understanding that digital transformation is a human as well as a technological process. It’s people who sustain supply chains by acting on the data I-Plan provides and by using knowledge gained about a customer’s supply chain through the experience of working with them.
The bias towards large vendors on Gartner’s Magic Quadrant often means that better solutions, like I-Plan, are overlooked. “The most innovative vendors I know,” wrote leading analyst Shaun Snapp, “are small and in fact the larger vendors tend to focus more on marketing and sales than on software innovation”.
Supply chain optimisation, then, means de-risking your purchasing decision and the best way to do that is to keep focused on software functionality and vendor flexibility.
I-Plan excels in both these areas.
