Pleasanton, California (EastBayDaily) — Steelwedge, the leader in cloud sales and operations planning (S&OP) solutions, will sponsor a SupplyChainBrain webinar entitled “What do Cloud, Your Sales Pipeline and Your Demand Plan Have in Common?” featuring Salesforce.com Chief Strategy Officer Bruce Richardson on April 22, 2014 at 12:00 pm EDT.
Event Details: Undoubtedly, companies have a lot of good information in their CRM systems. But they often don’t know how to best use it to manage their entire business, from Sales to Supply to Finance. What they need is a planning tool that enables them to extract, understand and translate the knowledge captured in the sale funnel, along with other demand signals, into actionable insight on how to deliver on-target results.
During this webinar, Richardson will provide guidance on how to fill the “missing link” in the sales and operations planning (S&OP) process—leveraging the intelligence contained in the sales pipeline to inform the consensus demand planning process. Richardson will explain how companies can: Provide visibility and insight into significant pipeline changes, assumptions and expectations Aggregate pipeline information for supply/demand balancing and operations planning decisions Translate pipeline confidence into accurate revenue and margin projections for better Integrated Business Planning
The webinar will conclude with a Q&A session during which attendees will have the opportunity to submit live questions to the speakers. Click here to register.
