OneSCM's Demand Collaborator acts as an extension to your planning engine to integrate with existing ERP data and maximize resource planning capability based on current demand. OneSCM adds automation and collaboration tools to your MRP system so you can seamlessly communicate forecast data with suppliers. Suppliers then use that real-time data to fulfill demand.
OneSCM provides complete demand visibility: It uses the planning engine to extract demand data, and allows you to define your planning horizon and publish forecast data in the form of time "buckets" in weekly and/or monthly quantities. This enables your supply base to plan to meet your requirements and respond to real-time changes in demand.
The resulting increase in communication with suppliers and accuracy in forecast planning with OneSCM produce these tangible results for supply chain organizations:
- Decrease in cost of goods and sales
- Improved cash conversion cycle
- Improved capacity planning to meet real-time demand
- Minimized occurrence of oversupply and shortages
- Elimination of shipment and schedule delays due to automated communication processes
