Cornerstone and Supply Chain & Logistics Association of Australia (SCLAA ) today announced a new partnership to increase availability of an integrated and more streamlined Supply Chain Management process to assist members to stay abreast of newly available planning and forecasting technology.
The direct connection between Cornerstone’s experience in Demand and Supply Management, Forecasting and Planning, and the SCLAA industry reach and interests, is the perfect blend for the current forecasting and planning challenges.
Many of the SCLAA membership will know how difficult it was to pivot quickly to accommodate major changes to trade and the economy when Australia and the rest of the world entered Lock-down due to the pandemic crisis. As procurement teams struggled to cope with the global pandemic, supply chain personnel have been trying to keep up with the news about global response measures, and have been working diligently to secure raw materials and components and to protect supply lines.
However, vital information is often not available or accessible across teams and rapid scenario modelling can be complex and cumbersome. As a result, their response to the disruption has been largely reactive and uncoordinated and the impact of the crisis hitting many of their companies full force.
Cornerstone Performance Management partners with the world’s leading software businesses to provide companies a more strategic, planning, budgeting, forecasting, and analytics solution. Based in Sydney, our office locations span across Asia Pacific servicing hundreds of clients globally since 2007. Operating as Cornerstone in Australia, and PMsquare in the ASEAN region, the Group delivers business analytics and information management solutions to some of the worlds most recognised brands.
One of Cornerstone’s most progressive software partners is Anaplan, that enables organisations to connect data, people, plans and your network to make better-informed decisions and drive faster, more responsive supply chain planning. Connecting every aspect of your operations helps you shrink inventories, improve response times, and deliver products on time to customers, no matter what channel they use.
To celebrate partnering with SCLAA, Cornerstone would like to offer SCLAA members a 60 day free trial of the Anaplan connected planning platform and the Supply Chain Management App, a plug and play solution that will import Excel spreadsheets, and provide a more flexible, transparent and centralised view of supply and logistics data to reduce decision timelines from days and weeks,down to just a few minutes. The team at Cornerstone looks forward to learning more about members needs, and are happy to provide guidance to SCLAA members whenever they have questions about technology and analytics solutions.
