Celcus Sales Planning enables internationally operating manufacturers to make a forecast for all sales based on scenario’s for all products, all customers, all account managers, all subsidiaries, all countries and for all prices and currencies. The base case scenario is built from the ground up and contains a ‘down-swing’ and ‘up-swing’. Each forecast needs to be submitted to a higher management levels for approval. The solution aggregates all input and shows a consolidated picture for the finance and production department. The solution offers the finance department the ability to distinguish between ‘intercompany sales’, ‘third party sales’, ‘trade sales’, ‘production sales’, etcetera. The solution is multi-currency and provides a calculated estimated total revenue based on all units sold.
Benefits of the partner solution for the customer
Jedox has provided the architecture to build this global web solution. The historic data and actuals are extracted form SAP R/3 and SAP BW. The application offers sales the ability to create their scenario’s based on this data and manually manipulate it. E.g. sales can change unit sold, pricing, add customers and so forth to create a forecast for their territory or span of control. The workflow has been tailor-made to fit the exact specification of this company. Jedox rulesengine has been applied.
