One plan, intuitive views and smooth access management
Our integrated planning model lets you work together smoothly. Involve all types of users through adaptable views. Ensure real-time demand plan consistency with flexible aggregation and disaggregation.
“Key areas for innovation improvements would be around really going to IBP planning, full financial evaluation, making the link with our financial systems, but also around demand sensing, and bringing market data directly into our planning systems.”
Arie Moruanx, Global Planning Excellence Leader – Medical Devices at Johnson & Johnson
“Operational excellence is one of our core values. We take pride in being a global material solutions company with a focus on our customer needs and requirements. As a consequence, forecasting is an essential building block in our Sales & Operations Planning. One of the challenges in our day to day business is to react to and serve faster our customers’ ever-changing needs while lowering costs and optimizing inventories. To respond to this, the OMP solution helps us take our process to a more mature level by providing a structured forecasting environment, facilitating for a more time-efficient process and greater cross-functional collaboration.”
Øystein Gulliksen, European Demand Planning Manager at Sibelco
“Among the key benefits that we’ve achieved is better decision making. One of the ways that OMP differentiates itself is through visualizations. For a group of people who were used to digging into reports and looking for numbers, the tool made it very easy to highlight exceptions that needed to be addressed. It could also determine which models would help our demand planners make the most accurate forecast decisions.”
Rick Poe, Director of Supply Chain Business Services at Shaw Industries
"We contracted OMP to do a forecastability study. OMP was able to predict the right level of forecast, the right fit statistical models for the different segments of our business, as well as the granularity and time buckets that would improve our accuracy. All in all we predict a 10 tot 15 million dollar savings as a result of the accuracy improvements."
Dana Shaffer, Director Demand Planning and Sales and Operations Planning at Shaw Industries
“While forecasting was previously deemed unreliable and therefore resisted, our teams now increasingly understand the assumptions they’re based on. Forecasts are validated and their degree of uncertainty is qualified and clearly communicated across the organization. Managers therefore increasingly appreciate and trust the data coming out of the system. This greatly helps to improve communication between our various teams. The system has made a substantial contribution to breaking down barriers between our different sales, distribution and production entities.”
Grégoire Castagna, Supply Chain and Business Reporting Engineer at Eramet
“We implemented OMP's solution for forecasting and inventory management. Our goal was to reach lower stocks while maintaining the same service level for our customers. We already see the first benefits. Forecast accuracy has improved. We need fewer change-overs, we produce fewer rush orders and have fewer stock ruptures. Our planning and production have improved a lot.”
Heidi Behiels, Group Planning Manager at Betafence

Focus on value
Achieve more with advanced intelligence, tracking and feedback
Forecast by value
Plan beyond volumes
Shape demand by planning, not only on volume but also on value, forecasting bottom-line revenue impact all along.
Add value at each forecast step
Track value contribution based on embedded metrics
Optimize your final consensus forecast by tracking and measuring how much each consecutive step in the forecast process contributes to overall forecasting accuracy.
Act on deviations
Analyze forecast accuracy and deal with forecast errors
Measure forecast accuracy, pinpoint forecast deviations and deploy the best possible combination of human, artificial and market intelligence to add more value.
