Nearly a year after turn ing off all other systems and using only Outperform Planning to manage their S&OP process, King and Prince Seafood has been able to achieve most of the targets they set out to as part of the implementation project. There is now a single tool that provides a complete and detailed view of their supply chain that was not possible before.
King and Prince Seafood has planned for a follow-up phase later this year to pick up on other potential gains in their supply chain network.
