Integrated Business Planning - IBP Express

Business today runs at the speed of information. Companies are challenged with lack of visibility into their markets and the supply chain requirements to support those future needs. Today’s executives scramble to adjust to rapidly changing conditions, but they can’t analyze their options accurately enough or fast enough to see critical trends and anticipate future demand.

IBP Express was specifically designed to vastly reduce the time required to implement a best-practice S&OP/IBP solution without sacrificing quality while achieving financial and operational improvements quickly. IBP Express bridges the gaps in corporate planning systems, integrating financial planning with operations planning. Companies can rapidly deploy this executive process and have it standing-up in less than 90 days.

Through all levels (executive, management & key users), IBP Express leverages Oracle’s S&OP software to provide a consistent and flexible data presentation format that facilitates scenario planning for proper decision making.

As a hosted solution on our AVATA Business Cloud, IBP Express is a cost efficient solution for both enterprise and mid-size companies alike. The IBP Express solution is flexible and can be integrated with any level of advance planning software. Companies can start their IBP process first or tie it into other advance planning initiatives.

Benefits of IBP Express:

  • Best Business Practice
  • Process Discipline
  • Standard Dashboards for each Step of the Process
  • Fast Implementation
  • Low Cost of Ownership
  • Standard Technology
  • Proven Results

 

Utilizing IBP Express means the whole company is operating to one, current and accurate plan or “one truth.” In these tough economic times, the plan may not always indicate that all goals will be met, but company executives will have the critical information they need to chart the best course of action in a turbulent marketplace.

AVATA Express solutions include predefined data sets and feature sets pre-configured to peer industry best practices.
