Oracle® Collaborative Planning provides a better way to enable multi-enterprise planning. You can collaborate securely with your trading partners, reduce planning cycle time, and identify and react quickly to supply chain exceptions. By getting early visibility to your supply commit changes and making your suppliers aware of your order forecast changes, you can quickly streamline cross-enterprise planning and operations. Oracle Collaborative Planning enables you to increase forecast accuracy, implement vendor managed and consigned inventory processes, increase global supply visibility, reduce supply shortages, and lower expediting cost.
