While our differentiating expertise is in S&OP/Integrated Business Planning, we also work with clients to improve the supporting planning processes, organizational structures, and enabling information technology.
Please see the service descriptions below that link to more information, and please see information on our Approach.
In addition to implementing best practices, Nexview helps you leverage S&OP to be the platform for continuous improvement and the vehicle for KPI performance management, definition of accountability, results management, leadership development, and aligning the S&OP design with an organizational design that works best for your company. While some companies may need a full S&OP implementation, others may need assistance in rallying an effort through a quick assessment and training, or some direction in revitalizing an existing process. Please see more about our Sales & Operations Planning services, suggestions to Revitalize Your S&OP blog post, or full article published in the Journal of Business Forecasting, or check-out our S&OP Self Assessment Toolkit.

While a well-functioning S&OP process combined with operational improvements deeper in the organization will certainly improve profitability, Nexview teams with a partner firm to further optimize profitability. We use a sophisticated model that uses activity based costing techniques to model costs at the customer and product levels. With this model and a management system to act upon this transparency, business leaders are significantly better positioned to make objective decisions and distribute accountabilities throughout their sales organizations to reach business level goals.
