Steelwedge is the only dedicated provider of S&OP solutions, the only vendor offering a purpose-built Cloud Computing-based S&OP solution, and the only vendor that is able to quickly deploy and engage users in a globally collaborative S&OP solution that reaches beyond a company’s firewall to engage users. Our ability to enable global, complex manufacturing organizations to benefit from S&OP in an extremely short term period is also unique. The fact that General Electric (GE), Hewlett Packard (HP), Honeywell, Emerson Electric, Sara Lee and many other leading global brands have selected Steelwedge speaks for itself.
The proof is having successful S&OP implementations at your customers that are sustainable over the long term. Oracle has a number of successful S&OP solution implementations across many industries. Many S&OP efforts are like diets, they work for a while and then companies fall back to old processes. By building S&OP support into our SCP applications, Oracle helps companies to adopt better processes as part of their daily/weekly planning routine.
Another key differentiator for Oracle is our Demantra Demand Management that enables companies to implement a global demand planning process that senses local demand changes, generates a much more accurate forecast, and supports a cross-functional consensus planning process that forms the foundation of a superior sales and operations planning process. To complement this consensus planning capability, Oracle also provides integrated what-if simulation analysis tools that enable planners to quickly resolve supply/demand issues and then immediately push this new plan into the ERP system for execution.
