Interlace Systems, a leading provider of integrated business planning software, announced survey results that clearly articulate critical, problematic issues that sales and operations planning (S&OP) professionals face on a daily basis. The survey targeted senior level S&OP planners in consumer goods, industrial manufacturing and high technology equipment companies.The results indicate several trends: a majority of respondents are dissatisfied with their existing S&OP and are making investments in both process and software tools to address critical gaps."The results of this survey reflect that, while S&OP is well understood and in place at many companies, there is still a high degree of dissatisfaction among S&OP practitioners, " stated Jim Lodestro president and CEO, Interlace Systems. "The good news is that companies across many industries are re-focusing on improving their S&OP efforts. In fact, 60 percent of the companies surveyed indicate they have funded initiatives to improve both processes and tools in 2006."
