New Real-Time Category Management adds speed, visibility

Restaurants icon
Supply chain events happen on their own schedule … not yours. That’s why we built Real-Time Category Management into the latest SCA Planner update. Real-Time Category Management gives your team the ability to monitor and respond to events as they occur … in real time. In addition, the system notifies the entire category team of updates and tracks their responses.

Here’s how it works

When something changes in the supply chain, SCA Planner incorporates the event into a forward category plan along with metrics such as food cost and supply plan. For example, if a demand planner updates the demand plan or a commodity manager updates commodity forecasts, SCA Planner notifies supply chain planners and purchasing managers. The SCA Planner intelligence engine also provides timely insights and recommends supply chain opportunities, all in real time. SCA Planner incorporates these updates, using contract basis and reporting metrics to generate prices, forecasts and projections. Thus you’re freed from manually translating emails and spreadsheets into category reports, and pricing and forecasting become a simple matter of approving and selecting the changes … in real time.
