ST. LOUIS
 (July 22, 2014) – Demand Management Inc., a leading global resource for supply chain management solutions, launched a valuable new Supply Chain Planning Assessment.

The assessment takes participants through the five stages of the Integrated Business Planning (IBP) process: Sense, Shape, Collaborate, Integrate and Orchestrate. A detailed and customized assessment report identifies the areas of the IBP process in which the company is excelling as well as the areas that represent opportunities for improvement in driving tangible business value.

“Demand Solutions is more than just a software company,” remarked Bill Harrison, president of Demand Management. “Our goal has always been to provide the industry and business decision makers the best tools and information available. I believe that with the launch of the Supply Chain Assessment, we are achieving that goal by allowing companies to make themselves aware of gaps within their own supply chains and allow for the opportunity remedy those situations.”
