    The outsourced planning offering addresses two types of client needs:

    1.  Large Corporate clients with powerful systems such as SAP IBP, Oracle ASCP, Blue Yonder, Kinaxis, etc.  For such clients, our data scientists work on the client systems to review forecasts and plans and make planning suggestions.  They will help you outsource some of the day-to-day analytics and reporting.  But they may also help you bring process improvement over time as our team is trained on the best practice approach to supply chain planning.  

    2.  Smaller clients who do not have such systems and resource capabilities.  We help the smaller companies gain a competitive advantage by bringing quant and systems capabilities and skillsets that have been trained on the Fortune 500 processes.  This service initially was geared to smaller companies but now companies of all sizes are finding this to be of value.  

    Many smaller businesses miss out on the features and capabilities that a Demand Planning function can bring - holistically filling the gap between Strategic Planning, Financial Planning, and Operations.  Demand Planning is the sweet spot for this service but we have found supply planning, advanced S&OP reporting and inventory management all can be outsourced productively.  

    The Need for Demand Planning and how it plugs the vacuum between financial planning and operations

    This is a key reason Valtitude/Demand Planning LLC started offering outsourced planning in 2015. 

    Many mid-market companies do not have a well-defined demand planning function. Typically the commercial team does a forecast at the brand level for their own target setting purposes.  The Sales team may have an order based forecast for meeting their sales targets.  The Marketing team may actually decide on the production targets working with the supply planners.  

    The supply planners pick up the high-level forecast from the Marketing function and try to make sense out of this aggregated forecast and split hairs along with this the forecast down to SKU and DC level.

    If you are missing the Demand Planning function or capability, you should seriously consider:

    • Our Forecasting Consulting Solutions to diagnose and implement a refined process with tools
    • Outsourced Planning where our data science team will support your business process working with your team to facilitate a holistic S&OP process.  

    Demand Planning is the first gap you should plug if you want to improve operational planning. Connect with us and we will help you find the holy grail of synergistic planning.

    Our outsourced planning services are priced using a combination of factors that include:

    • SKU Count
    • Customer Count
    • Hours per month
    • Customer Interface points including meetings and conference calls.

    Prices start from approximately $2,250 a month.
