Learn How The Oil Major Expands Its Global S&OP Footprint Using SAP® IBP

When our client (major oil services company) made the decision to transfer their inventory planning system to IBP S&OP powered by HANA, they chose Intrigo Systems as their preferred implementation partner. The reasoning behind our client’s decision was simple to make, yet crucial in magnitude.

Discover the capabilities of IBP S&OP, and enable your organization to:

  • Gain further perspective by visualizing planning through a new lens, with the ability to create standardized planning-view templates.
  • Maximize productivity with scenarios for every outcome
