With smart S&OP, the sky is the limit
Not only will cost-to-serve insights empower the decision-making process, but they will also make S&OP processes more agile. After all, supply chain controllers are in a unique position – in the center of finance, sales and supply chain – to bring crucial, objective, well-informed opinions to the S&OP table. To maximize these benefits, a centralized information repository is needed to contain all cost-to-serve data in a single, easy-to-access location.
“Cost to serve is, on all counts, the first step towards an intelligent, value-driven, mature S&OP process – and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Your business can use it to transform your supply chain operations into the foundation for a transparent, customer-driven value chain in which your business is a trusted, preferred partner,” Kristof concludes.
