Prior to adopting GIB solutions, the majority of our customers experienced the same journey implementing a Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) process:

Realize SAP standard lacks the functionality and insight to properly optimize and scale supply chain operations and integrated planning.

Search for external software to fill gaps - except external solutions result in substantial costs, data leaks, and add complexity to daily business operations.

Resign to Excel. Frustrated by the cost and complexity of external options, companies resort to using offline spreadsheets. New data silos and unscalable processes create new planning challenges.

Adopt GIB for planning and execution convergence inside SAP, and achieve cost-effective Supply Chain Optimization.

GIB SCX (Supply Chain Excellence)

Attain Top Down Tracking of Supply Chain Quality

Use intelligent process targets to help you identify the quality of your supply chain processes through SAP-based key performance indicators.

Based on master data from your SAP S/4HANA system, key performance indicators are used to evaluate the process quality and hidden potential of each phase of your supply chain cycle. A sophisticated algorithm assigns each phase an intelligent process indicator. Together, these process indicators establish one key figure: your SCX indicator.

Ultimately, GIB SCX uses daily business performance to establish top down process quality. GIB SCX covers the same critical supply chain areas as the GIB Suite, but enables leadership to bring your business one step closer to optimal performance with process quality indicators and control.

"Those using GIB had better operational visibility with 64% saying they had the visibility, quality, and granularity they need for supply chain operational data versus 57% of SAP IBP customers."
