Sales & Operations Planning

The alignment of sales and operations (S&OP), supported by effectively deployed technology is the key to growth, profitability and innovation. Lack of alignment leads to lost opportunities, stagnant growth and failure to capitalize on opportunities. Even worse, internal cohesion suffers and effort is wasted while your competition moves forward.
