Monsanto Selects Steelwedge S&OP Technology to Power Global Forecast
Accuracy and Allocation Process
Cloud-Based Planning Solution Supports Global Growth
PLEASANTON, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/22/13 -- Steelwedge, the leader
in cloud-based Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) solutions, has
been selected by Monsanto Company to support and standardize its
global demand forecasting and inventory management process.
Monsanto is an agricultural company that provides farmers with
products and technology used to maximize the farmer's productivity
while utilizing fewer resources like land and water. Through a
systems approach to agriculture that includes breeding, biotechnology
and advanced agronomic practices, Monsanto delivers sustainable
agricultural solutions for millions of farmers worldwide to feed the
world's growing population. Planning for this scale of operations to
ensure the right products are available in the right regions at the
right time -- across multiple growing and harvest seasons and
changing environmental conditions -- is increasingly complex.
Steelwedge was selected to manage Monsanto's complex global planning
environment because of its simple user interface for better
collaboration, and its strong what-if capabilities that connect
finance and operational plans in a single global environment.
Based on a successful Steelwedge Test Drive showing the benefits of
automating the Monsanto planning process, the company chose
Steelwedge as its single integrated business planning solution to
power better supply/demand balance and trade off decision-making to
keep the company nimble in a changing global market.
"We look forward to helping Monsanto power an even more agile
business plan that can scale to meet their accelerating customer
demand and address global market fluctuations," said EJ Tavella, Vice
President, Strategic Sales and Solutions at Steelwedge.
