Adexa's Profit-Driven Supply Chain Planning Solutions Show One of the Highest Levels of Market Readiness for Manufacturers

Leading Planning Vendor Co-Sponsors Aberdeen's S&OP Benchmark Report

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - September 29, 2009) - Adexa, Inc., the global provider of Supply Chain Planning and Performance Management software, has co-sponsored Aberdeen Research's premier benchmark report, entitled "Sales and Operations Planning: Integrate with Finance and Improve Revenue," for a second consecutive year. The study highlights the result of 214 companies participating in a survey on Sales and Operations planning-related initiatives. The goal of this study is to compare and contrast the view points of supply chain and finance organizations relating to S&OP processes, and puts a special emphasis on expressing the S&OP plan in terms of financial impact.

In today's volatile markets it's very difficult for companies to plan for Demand, Supply, and Inventories, while meeting their financial objectives. "This confirms Adexa's direction for the past two years toward Profit-Driven S&OP© solutions, which facilitate for a tight integration between supply chain planning and financial visibility -- because every decision affects the bottom line," stated Kameron Hadavi, VP of Global Marketing & Alliances, at Adexa.

"Best-in-Class companies are focusing more towards a holistic consideration of supply, demand and financial plans whereas the vast majority of the market place is still grappling with the traditional supply chain issues such as managing demand forecasts within the S&OP plan," said Nari Viswanathan, VP/Principal Analyst, SCM Practice, at Aberdeen Research. "Without financial optimization, scenarios cannot be compared on an apples-to-apples basis. Adexa's S&OP solutions have shown one of the highest levels of market readiness in this area."
