Would you like to make better and more informed decisions?
What if you could create realistic and feasible plans aligned with your company’s business strategy?
Integrated business planning (IBP) is the planning process or philosophy that integrates all the organization’s planning functions with each other, orchestrated by Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP). The aim of IBP is the alignment of business plans with forecasts and strategic business targets set by the organization’s top management.
When all your planning functions are integrated with each other and with your transactional and execution systems, you can rest assured that your execution is based on your demand forecast and strategic targets. Feedback from your day of operations ensures that your plans match the reality, allowing for greater agility and accuracy in your financial plans.

An ideal integrated business planning solution should focus on achieving the business’ goals and targets, and provide valuable information to ensure that your plans are aligned with the corporate strategy.
Integrate Easily and Seamlessly to Your IT Landscape
Integrations are the backbone of IBP; the system should integrate easily and seamlessly to the organization’s IT landscape to make sure the correct information is in the right system at the right time.
Enable and Encourage Collaboration Between Functions and Beyond
Collaboration is at the heart of IBP, and IBP is at the core of collaboration. The IBP solution should enable and encourage collaboration between functions and beyond organizational hierarchy, and even beyond your organization. When all your processes, tools and people work towards a common goal, you can say the organization has achieved integrated business planning.
Make Better Decisions through Scenario-Based Planning
Making timely and informed decisions is crucial for the success of any business. Integrated Business Planning solutions can help evaluate risks and opportunities of alternative decisions and do what-if analyses in the light of KPIs and business expertise to help you make the right decision for your business.
Support Your Organization's Workflow
The chosen IBP system should support the workflow of the organization and ensure the correct workflow is followed. IBP can help you control your workflows by making sure that the right people have the right information at the right time, and they are prompted to do the next task in the process. This allows for the organization to work towards the common goal and have everyone participate with clear responsibilities and targets.
