YES. The individual applications in the GB Suite communicate with each other. This ensures that the information from sales planning can be incorporated into downstream planning scenarios. Once the optimal plan has been established, the results and findings from the planning process and the simulation and implementation phases are incorporated into the optimization phase and have a direct influence on the subsequent analysis and planning process. The result is a planning cycle comprised of analysis, planning, execution and optimization.
The synergies from combining all the modules in the GIB Suite provide an even greater benefit than using each module individually. The use of the GIB Suite has led to more sustainable success and greater results than the sum of the success from using the individual modules.
