ATLANTA -- March 12, 2013

Logility Inc., a leading supplier of collaborative solutions to optimize the
supply chain, and Deloitte will share step-by-step best practices for pursuing
sales and operations planning (S&OP) excellence. The online event will discuss
the three principles for success: make it easy to implement, easy to execute
and easy to sustain. This live webcast, “The Practical Approach to S&OP,” is
hosted by APICS and will begin Wednesday, March 27, 2013 at 11:00 am ET.

Today companies view sales and operations planning as a means to execute
corporate strategy. A successful S&OP process aligns an organization
strategically to execute tactically. Often the biggest obstacles to S&OP
excellence stem from complexity – it may be too difficult to gather data,
there may be too many meetings, the process may be too hard to govern, and key
data too difficult to analyze and report. Ultimately, the process may become
too hard to execute. Leading supply chain teams have discovered that true S&OP
success flows from practical thinking. The journey to a successful S&OP
process takes time and persistence to develop but no matter where you start,
the journey is well worth the effort.
