Drive Better Decisions

Make life easier at every step of your planning journey. With intuitive End-to-End integrated software that gives you the insight to spot and solve problems at the right moment.

Tackle challenges head-on

  • Reduced Customer Service

    You have poor customer service levels, or are spending too much to deliver a good level of service.

  • Volatile Demand

    The market, economy, and customer needs are changing quickly and you’re struggling to keep up.

  • Carbon Emissions

    You want to know what your forecast emissions are and where you can reduce your supply chain’s effect on the environment.

  • Ineffective Manual Planning

    You haven’t got the information or tools you need to make smart planning decisions, so outcomes are poor.

  • Limited Data Visibility

    To meet customer demand you need End-to-End visibility from raw materials through to distribution. At the moment, you can’t connect the dots.

  • Poor Forecast Accuracy

    Inaccuracies have either impacted customer service or driven excess stock and obsolescence as well as cascading down the supply chain.

  • Operational & Finance Targets Misaligned

    Your operational plans aren’t working towards your overall business targets.

  • Stock Waste & Shelf Life is a Problem

    Poor planning decisions can mean disposing of finished goods, WIP, materials or packaging stock unnecessarily. Manufacturers are under pressure to hold less stock but maintain service levels.

  • Excess Production Costs

    Too long spent on changeover and cleaning, late deliveries, poor yield of materials. They’re all adding up.

  • High Procurement Costs

    To meet delivery deadlines, you often pay higher prices and / or spend more on emergency transport because of issues earlier in the supply chain.

  • Soaring Labour Costs

    There’s too much overtime being logged across all of your departments.

  • Product Quality Issues

    Your equipment and tooling maintenance scheduling isn’t up to scratch, and it’s impacting product quality.

  • What Product & Where

    Coordinating which products to make, how many, when and where is a struggle, let alone synchronising deliveries of semi-finished products between manufacturing locations.

  • Continual Promotional Peaks

    You’re having trouble bringing your marketing and sales teams together with production planning, to reduce stock-outs and maximise sales during promotions.

  • Delivery Promise Inaccuracies

    Customers are frustrated at the slow response time and lack of accuracy when promising delivery dates. You don’t have visibility of the right data or the tools to give them what they need.

  • Ineffective Customer/Product Prioritisation

    Everything is a priority because the rules are neither understood nor systemised. This means you can’t prioritise your key customers and products effectively.

  • Difficulty Managing Complex Constraints

    Your Constraints, Planning Rules and BOMs are increasing in both scale and complexity further exposing the limitations of your existing systems.

Trusted by our clients

“Greencore is involved in multiple categories, supplying a diverse range of products with different characteristics that require very different manufacturing processes. We selected sofco as they have an End-to-End planning and execution system that can be configured easily to fit these disparate demands. Our approach is much more sophisticated and collaborative now.”

Chris Chestney

IT Business Partner, Greencore

“What impressed us most about the sofco people was they understood our business, listened, and would bring a lot of experience to the project. They brought solid solutions to the issues we presented them with. It was clear from the outset that we were going to be able to work well together as a team and deliver this project.
