At its core, effective Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) is rooted in cross-functional organizational alignment and actionable, consumable data. With a proper S&OP foundation and process in place, manufacturers can balance demand and supply effectively, optimize resources, and capitalize on market opportunities as they arise.

Unfortunately, legacy technology, spreadsheet-based workflows, and lack of system interoperability derail S&OP efforts for many organizations. Join us to hear industry experts from Argano discuss how manufacturers can maximize the business impact of S&OP with a data-driven approach that not only optimizes cross-functional planning initiatives but also generates opportunities for both top- and bottom-line growth.
