De Kroes licenses S&OP for Exact. De Kroes had been exploring implementing Sales and Operations Planning to expand the capabilities of their Exact ERP system. At the conference "Exact Live!" in September 2013 their interest in Outperform was triggered by the presentation by Stephan Schneider from Vacu Vin "Inventory is there for a reason".
De Kroes started the implementation on November 19 and was ready to plan the year budget for 2014 and start the rolling forecast in the same week. The seamless integration between the Outperform application and Exact is the cornerstone that made this happen so quickly.
We have come to know de Kroes as a forward looking and decisive company. We are happy to contribute to this quality-oriented firm and are confident that S&OP will help ensuring business ambitions get realized.
