Pleasanton, California (PressExposure) June 01, 2013 -- Steelwedge, the leader in cloud-based sales and operations planning (S&OP) solutions, today announced that it was recognized as one of the Supply & Demand Chain Executive "100 Great Supply Chain Projects" for 2013. The award honors supply chain solution and service providers that help their customers achieve supply chain excellence through cost-cutting and increased efficiency.
In the recognized project, Steelwedge created a robust methodology involving modeling, algorithms, and collaborative forecasting that could truly assess "what-if" impacts of promotional options for a wireless carrier. Now--for the first time--this customer has a complete view in an enterprise-class solution allowing for accurate viewing of the SKU item master. If prices change, and a new SKU comes into the mix, it all goes into the system, enabling planners to react quickly to impromptu requests and provide projected impacts for the company. Steelwedge S&OP allows the wireless carrier to deliver an advanced analytics modeling solution without needing to increase headcount, infrastructure footprint, or change skill sets.
"We are honored that Supply & Demand Chain Executive recognized this project for its ambitiousness, creativity, and tangible results," said Glen Margolis, Steelwedge CEO. "We are thrilled to collaborate with market-leading companies to add efficiency and effectiveness to their business processes."
