Collaborative Enterprise Planning.

What is collaborative enterprise planning?
Collaborative enterprise planning is the process of linking and aligning all plans across your organisation. It breaks down silos and brings your teams together – finance, HR, sales, marketing, IT, and supply chain – to collaborate on plans and drive better business outcomes.

Finance
Consolidate budgets and plans from across the organisation and drive collaborative enterprise planning to ensure alignment between operational plans and financial goals.

Marketing
Create more effective marketing plans and align them to business objectives. Predict the impact of campaigns on sales revenue, optimise performance, and tightly track results.

Sales
Develop new sales plans and strategies – and track results on every channel. Set targets and use advanced data visualisation tools to view and measure results in real time

Human Resources
Align workforce planning with business goals. Ensure you have the right talent at the right time, forecast risks and skill gaps – and continually optimise headcount plans.

Supply Chain
Profitability fulfil demand with real-time supply chain planning. Combine capabilities for sales and operations planning (S&OP), supply and demand planning, and inventory.

IT
Create detailed plans and budgets for IT projects and business process improvements. Align technology, hardware, and software investments with strategic priorities.

Why collaborative enterprise planning?

To be effective, planning can’t be performed in silos. It needs to be a collaborative process that spans the organisation and lets everyone see and understand the impact of their plans on other areas of the business.

With collaborative enterprise planning, all teams can work with a single version of the truth, link planning models, and take advantage of powerful embedded analytics. Finance can get a holistic view of plans – and improve forecasts, budgeting accuracy, and the bottom line.
