January 4, 2021

Political landscapes shift overnight, global trade is constantly changing, consumers demand increasingly personalized service and smaller day-to-day challenges hit without warning. If your job is supply chain management, how on earth do you plan for the unplannable?

2020 has brought with it unprecedented challenges. Whether you’re dealing with the fallout from COVID-19, an extreme weather event, or any of the other disruptions that compromise your supply chain daily, one thing is for sure. Excel and traditional planning tools are no match for today’s disruptions. It’s time to think differently.

Concurrent planning drives end-to-end supply chain visibility, connectivity and alignment to give everyone across your supply chain a single source of truth. No more functional silos and no more ‘I didn’t know’ – just more time to respond to the unexpected. Innovative companies like P&G, Unilever and Ford have seen the difference concurrency makes.
