Operational excellence is the result of detailed planning, fine-grained cost control, and production quality, day in and day out. Managing orders, inventory, work in progress, and logistics—shipments from suppliers and deliveries to customers—are just some of the day to day activities required to compete, win, and innovate. To be effective, operations departments must take control of the Order-to-Cash and Procure-to-Pay cycles with accurate product quoting solutions that leverage standardised, official price books—with pre-vetted product configurations—to prevent surprises. To respond to customer requests and competitive pressures—to be agile and to innovate—they need real-time visibility on all available resources (personnel, equipment and inventory) and production activities, as well as procurement, warehousing, and logistics activities.

These solutions eliminate IT costs while supporting innovation along the supply chain and the production line.
