Sales Planning & Forecasting
Sales Planning is the key initiative for a successful business. Without a good plan nobody within the organization knows what to do and what to expect. Small mistakes and imprecise assumption can have a big impact on the corporate result. Therefore a global Enterprise should use the right professional solution and not trust on Excel files or systems that don’t fulfill the requirements.
With VISTAlution, we provide you the tool that allows you to perform your long-term sales planning and forecasting at the part number level – with more precision and efficiency than you can imagine.
Complexity, Dependencies and Standards
Your Organization has Thousands of Part Numbers to manage, and it is getting more and more every year. The biggest challenge is to bring them in relation to the right Projects, to understand which one is replacing another, which are supplied together at same quantities, to understand in which vehicles they are fitted and which changes in terms of volumes and prices do have which impact.
Those data need to be dynamic – whenever changes in vehicle production are faced, new exchange-rates are issued or a different weighting should be used, the effect should be incorporated automatically. This can only be managed and controlled with the right software solution.
