Transform your supply chain
Most supply chains focus on reducing operational costs through technologies and processes built for manufacturing and distribution operations. However, today’s global-leading enterprises are redefining the role and scope of their supply chains, making them perform at a strategic business level. They are transforming their supply chains to be demand-driven, with a direct bearing on revenue and profits. IT is at the core of this transformation, providing demand visibility and revenue opportunities across all levels of the supply chain. Oracle Demantra is one of the key technologies enabling supply chains to sense, shape and respond to demand in real-time. SYSTIME’s Demantra Practice brings years of JD Edwards experience blended with expertise in demand planning to help enterprises achieve supply chain transformation.
SYSTIME’s Demantra Practice enables your supply chain to:
- Achieve internal and external collaboration
- Leverage every source of data
- Use intelligence in supply chain applications, not algorithms
- Create a real-time, demand-driven sales and operations process
- Prioritize process excellence before technology.
