)-- Infor today announced the availability of Infor SCM Demand Planning 6.2, a Web-enabled, collaborative solution that provides an accurate picture of demand to drive production, inventory, distribution and buying plans across the enterprise. The solution now includes role-based exceptions management to ensure users have immediate access to the information that matters most to them.
As supply chains become increasingly complex with more products distributed to a growing number of locations, enterprising companies require business-specific solutions that enable them to more accurately forecast demand and plan supply accordingly. SCM Demand Planning’s advanced statistical capabilities bring pinpoint accuracy to demand plans, resulting in a single, global view that provides the foundation for both sales and operations.
“Supply chains are growing, and with this growth comes complexity and risk,” said Eric Nilsson, vice president, product management, Infor. “Infor SCM Demand Planning 6.2 places the most pertinent information into the hands of those that can act upon it. Placing accountability at the functional level means specific users now have the insight to proactively understand the impact of changes in the supply chain on their particular area and act accordingly.”
In addition to the availability of role-based exception management, SCM Demand Planning 6.2 introduces Action Memos, which provide an embedded workflow that allows critical items and their supporting products to be distributed across an enterprise. This instant collaboration leads to immediate review and faster resolution of events. Additionally, the new version provides users the ability to manage multiple products on a single screen across telescopic time periods and make mass changes to products or apply promotional profiles.
By increasing the speed, collaboration and scalability through user defined and role-based priorities, SCM Demand Planning 6.2 improves customer responsiveness and provides early opportunity to solve service issues in the supply chain. Additionally, these new capabilities allow companies of all sizes to manage larger volumes of product locations throughout their global supply chain.
