Business today runs at the speed of information. Unfortunately, the information used in most companies' Finance and Operations functions are not particularly speedy ,nor are they aligned. Finance often uses a monthly closing, and Operations is continually reacting to supply chain inputs. Is there any wonder that financial goal are often missed?
Modern firms have invested in financial planning systems, and sales and operations systems, but few know if their financial plan is achievable in the real world of operations, and when changes are made in supply chain execution, even fewer know the financial impact of those changes. Integrated Business Planning brings all of these departments into alignment. It focuses on developing and measuring common metrics that drive business success – allowing companies to proactively drive towards their financial goals rather than be reactive.
