4 introduction It is EyeOn s mission to improve its customer s Forecasting and Planning performance. EyeOn realizes demonstrable contributions to the bottom-line results of companies by increasing the forecasting accuracy and planning effectiveness. EyeOn hereby focuses on Processes, as well as on Tools and People. The on-going technological developments in ICT give rise to a continuous stream of new applications that can be used to forecast and plan. EyeOn follows this offering closely, continuously looking for new promising products that could help in specific situations where the more established tools are not fulfilling the demand. This brochure describes the software vendors that fit our mission of innovative, fast development & implementation. We have selected these vendors on their positioning, credibility and ability to deliver. We invest in setting up business partnerships with the vendors to have direct access to their sources and facilities. Moreover, we have invested in training and education: for all tools we have in-house specialists, where possible licensed by the vendor.

5 about eyeon The performance of forecasting and planning processes are key to the success of any company. EyeOn has expertise on following processes: Forecasting and demand planning Sales drives your business and good demand planning will make sure you are prepared for sales. A solid demand planning process leads to good decisions and is a joint effort of sales, finance and supply chain management. EyeOn helps customers develop, implement and improve their demand planning processes, so that demand planning becomes a smart, value adding process. S&OP Companies need robust processes and tools to manage the business towards optimization of top-line revenue and integral profit while addressing uncertainty and risk. This requires a very tight integration between strategy, planning and execution. Financial forecasting and budgeting Financial forecasting and budgeting is key in bringing a company s strategy into action. These processes have to support the management Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle. Supply planning In supply planning, actions are taken so that the supplying organization (manufacturing and distribution) is geared to meet the forecasted demand. A large variety of decisions are asked from the supply planning function: longer-term capacity requirements, optimum stock levels, proper mid term planning and an efficient execution schedule. With knowledge about supply chain design, supply chain analysis and proven line experience, EyeOn experts help streamline the supply planning function. Trade Promotion Management Promotions and related trade spend are increasingly getting management attention. Promotion pressure in the FMCG industry is high, often 30% of volume or above and trade spend involves serious amounts of money. This has consequences throughout the organization, some parts focus on the more volume related effects, others more on the value aspects and some on both volume and value. With immature processes and unfit tooling support, planning promotions is complex and time consuming while the effects and profitability of the promotions remain unclear and are not under control. EyeOn has implemented trade promotion management solutions resulting in close collaboration between finance & control, sales and marketing and supply chain and faster and better insights in trade spend and promotion profitability. Collaborative planning / end-to-end planning Each of the links in the supply chain operates in reaction to actual or anticipated demand from the consumer at the end of the chain. The involvement of suppliers and customers in the forecasting and planning process is relatively high in upstream companies and especially during the introduction and phase-in of new products. New product introductions The demand uncertainty of new product introductions brings in new challenging aspects in managing time-to-market and timeto-volume, but is at the same time critical for the bottom line result of a new product introduction. This puts a lot of pressure on the ability of manufacturers to align their processes towards the launch of these products. Profitability management To steer on profitability companies must be capable to identify the most valuable customers and products, while understanding the impact that changes in pricing and process improvements have on costs and profitability. Business management needs trust and confidence to take the right decisions about the productand/or customer portfolio. Statistical forecasting Statistical forecasting concentrates on identifying patterns and trends within the historic data, and develops a forecast by using mathematical formulas to identify the patterns and trends. EventCasting All data, from retailer to producer, as well as every step in the chain in between, is identified integrally. Together with the category know how of retailer and manufacturer and specialist models the best possible forecast for the whole chain is created weekly. This allows the supply chain to respond more responsive and adequately. EyeOn has implemented several EventCasting solutions that have proven to be very efficient in practice. eyeon solutions 5

6 services eyeon solutions EyeOn Solutions is specialized in selecting, implementing and maintaining forecasting and planning tools for our customers.

7 key to success When implementing planning & forecast tools, connection with source systems is required to load (meta) data. In most of our projects we experience that connecting to data sources, collecting & combining the data and make sure that this data is of good quality to be able to generate a planning, is very crucial to the success of the project. Data management is the key to success and involves the whole set of activities intended to improve corporate data quality (both reactive and preventive) and is tool independent. With data management, the quality of the data and metadata is improved in order to improve the quality of the decision-making processes within the organization. When the quality of the (meta) data does not comply with minimal standards, extra time is needed to sort these quality issues. To set up a good data management framework, different elements need to be addressed: ETL, MDM, DWH and Analytics. Extract Transform Load (ETL) Data to be used in the forecasting and planning tools is stored in different (operational) systems. The data needs to be extracted from the sources, transformed in such a way it can be loaded. Once available, the forecasting and planning tool can be used to support the business processes. Master Data Management (MDM) MDM comprises the processes, governance, policies, standards and tools that consistently define and manage the critical data of an organization to provide a single point of reference. The quality of this single point of reference defines the quality of the planning and forecast process, the data needs to be consistent, accurate and always up-to-date. Data Warehousing (DWH) DWH is the integration of data from one or more disparate sources to create a central repository of data. Business logics are applied in this DWH to collect, clean, store and combine the data from several source in order to be used as source for different processes like reporting, planning & forecasting and analytics. Analytics Analytics is the discovery and communication of meaningful patterns in data. Analytics relies on the simultaneous application of statistics, computer programming and operations research. Analytics is becoming much more important due to the increased number of sources of data (internal and external), the increased speed in which data is generated and the advantages that can be gained when using analytics to support business processes. This picture shows the relationship between the different services. The planning & forecasting wheel below provides an overview of existing suppliers of forecasting and planning tools. It is not intended to be complete; but the tools in the outer circle are currently setting, or will be setting the future main Forecasting and Planning tool offering. EyeOn has in-house knowledge of all tools listed. The highlighted tools are the newcomers that to our opinion will take a position in the years to come. These are described in more details on the next pages. We have selected these applications on their positioning, credibility and ability to deliver. We invest in setting up business partnerships with the suppliers to have direct access to their sources and facilities. Moreover, we have invested in education and certification: for all tools we have in-house specialists, where possible licensed by the supplier. The findings as described are based on actual experience in practical implementations. Feel free to contact us for learning more from actual implementations.
