SAS promotes supply chain intelligenc

Business intelligence software and services provider SAS earlier this year unveiled a new suite of solutions said to solve critical supply chain problems. Responding to customer requests for help in maximizing efficiency and profit in their supply chains, SAS Supply Chain Intelligence enables organizations to drive revenue and reduce costs by anticipating customer demand, improving procurement strategies and identifying actions that achieve targeted customer and quality service levels, SAS announced.

There are four solutions which can be deployed individually or together. They are: SAS Supplier Relationship Management (SRM), SAS Value Chain Analytics, SAS Demand Intelligence, and SAS Process Intelligence.

SAS also announced a new SAS Supply Chain Analytics Consulting Group to help customers deploy the new offerings and develop best practices to address analytical issues. The company notes that the new solutions and services can be used in conjunction with existing SCM and ERP systems.

“Automating and capturing supply chain transactions is only one requirement in the complex task of maximizing profitability in the supply chain,” the SAS announcement attributed to Bob Moran, vice president, Enterprise Business Applications and Analytics at the Aberdeen Group. “Enterprises also need accurate analytical insight into their supplier relationships, customer demand, spend patterns, and finance, as well as into their manufacturing and engineering processes.”
