Why it’s time to go beyond Excel in supply chain planning

Historically, Microsoft Excel has been the tool of choice for key supply chain planning (SCP) processes. Not surprisingly, the flexibility of spreadsheets and the familiarity that many supply chain planners have with them have led to their widespread adoption.

  • The specific pain points Excel causes supply chain planners, information technology and executive leadership
  • The key benefits of moving from spreadsheets to a modern day supply chain planning solution
