Heineken has now dedicated to extending its partnership with JDA Software, to shift its technique from gross sales and operations planning (S&OP), to built-in enterprise planning (IBP) to improve the best way it plans its enterprise.
Heineken is utilising JDA Software’s options “to make faster, more well-informed decisions, which directly impact everyone in the value chain,” stated Joost Luijbregts, Senior Director of Global Customer Service, Logistics and Planning at HEINEKEN, attributable to having a few of the most complex and unstable markets on this planet.
“With JDA, we have taken big steps forward – fundamentally changing the way we plan our business in terms of S&OP and scenario planning. As our partnership with JDA continues to strengthen, I am looking forward to working with JDA on our journey towards IBP.”
